Serves: 2 Preparation Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes
- 1 lb ground American lamb
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- pinch pepper
- 2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- fresh arugula
- fig preserves
- brioche buns
Prep: Divide the meat in half, and then in half again. Flatten each piece out, and add 1/3 cup of cheese onto two of the four halves. Add the top half to each cheese-filled patty, and press the edges together to seal up your cheese-stuffed burger.
Cook the Burgers: Cook the burgers over medium heat on the stovetop or on a grill, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Check the inside for desired doneness by using a meat thermometer – 145 degrees F is medium rare, 160 degrees F is medium, and 170 degrees F is well done.
Serve + Store: Serve on toasted brioche buns with a big schmear of fig preserves and a handful of fresh arugula! Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days.
