I’m ready. 

To wear flip flops? You betcha. 

To dine al fresco every night? Obvi. 

To grill every single meal? A must. 

I still can’t believe Memorial Day is in like five minutes. Can you? Can you? I’m still putting the final touches on our Memorial Day feast, but you can bet, I will be making this American Lamb & Frites Burger.

You guys know that my love for a juicy burger runs deep. Come to think of it I have a burger once a week. I’m not super picky when I’m eating out and order said burger, but when I’m at home I always lean towards lamb. American lamb is super juicy and nutrient rich too. A great protein choice when you want adventurous flavor or are looking to change things up. 

For this burger, I kept the mixture simple. Salt, pepper, few dashes of steak sauce and Tabasco are all you need. Form into lamb patties and toss them on the grill. While you cook the burgers you can make the frites. You can certainly make some homemade fries, but if you are in a pinch just toss some ready-to-go into the oven. 

Once everything is done cooking you are ready to assemble. Place the American lamb burger on a bun and top with frites. Seriously, these burgers are off the charts and the perfect way to celebrate the official start of summer! 

American Lamb & Frites Burger

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs American ground lamb
  • 1 tsp Tabasco
  • 1 tsp steak sauce + more for garnish 
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices tomato
  • Fresh arugula
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • French fries (fresh or frozen or cooked), for garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Place the ground lamb in a bowl and add in the Tabasco, steak sauce, salt and pepper. Using your hands mix the lamb and form into four burger patties. Place the lamb burgers on the grill and cook for about six minutes per side for medium. With about a minute left in cooking, add a cheddar slice to burger to melt. 
  2. To assemble the burger, place some arugula on the bottom bun. Top with tomato followed by the lamb burger, handful of frites, more steak sauce and the top bun. Repeat process for remaining burgers. Serve and enjoy!
