One of our favorite dinners is from the Breslin restaurant in the Ace Hotel in New York. The lamb burger is a decadent treat but too expensive to be somewhere we go often. It's used for super special occasions or when we have friends and family we're looking to feed well. I wanted to recreate the juicy lamb burger they make so well at home.
A lot of people think I'm crazy that I leave work at 7 and want to come home and cook a meal like this one. But just because it sounds fancy and tastes absolutely insanely delicious, doesn't mean it has to be a ton of hard work. In fact, the whole thing came together with time to spare as we waited for the oven fries to finish crisping up.
Serves: 2 (2 burgers)
2/3 pound ground lamb
2 tablespoons Montreal steak seasoning
2 kaiser rolls, toasted
1/4 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup olives, diced
1 roasted red pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 teaspoon mint, minced
1 teaspoon parsley, minced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons mint, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
Burgers: To make the burgers, form lamb into 2 patties. Season with seasoning on both sides. Grill 6-8 minutes per side, until fully cooked through but still juicy. Place on kaiser rolls immediately so rolls can soak up extra juice!
Mediterranean Compote: While burgers are cooking, combine feta cheese, olives, roasted red pepper, onion, mint, and parsley. Divide evenly over the burgers.
Mint Aioli: Combine mayonnaise, mint, and salt. Spread on the cut side of each top roll. Cover and serve burgers immediately.
