Lavender Lamb Burger

Surprising twist on a classic food...

lavender lamb burger


This floral burger bomb rocked my world. I am now hooked on lavender!

Blend 1 lb of ground lamb with a generous helping of herbes de provence and a tablespoon of lavendar olive oil. Form into two 1/2 lb patties. Cook on a stove top grill pan.

While cooking ...
1. Halve two whole grain kaiser rolls, brush liberally with extra virgin olive oil and then lightly with lavender olive oil. Convection bake in 400 degree oven until top is crispy and golden.
2. Blend a teaspoon each of herbes de provence and lavender olive oil with 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 1/4 cup Greek style yogurt.
3. Cut a ripe avocado into slices and set aside some fresh greens (arugula for us).
When burgers are flipped and almost cooked place a slice your favorite white cheese (we used cave aged Manchego) to melt.

To plate, put burger on crispy bun spread with lavender sauce, layer on avocado, a dollop of your lavender sauce, and greens.
 

Wow ... just wow!
