1 1/2 pounds ground lamb

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup soft fresh goat's cheese (or cream cheese for kids)

2 tablespoons chopped chives

Roughly chopped fresh mint or cilantro for garnish

Fine mince of hot jalapeno pepper if you wish


  1. In a mixing bowl combine the ground lamb with the cinnamon and season to taste with salt and pepper. Saute a bit of the mixture to taste if seasoning is right or not.
  2. Mix the goat's cheese with the chives.
  3. Divide the lamb into 4 portions and shape each one into a patty. Press your thumb in the center to create a pocket in the burger. Take about a tablespoonful of the cheese mixture and set it in the indentation. Enclose the lamb patty around the cheese to enclose it completely. Either grill, broil or saute them for about 4 minutes a side.
  4. To serve, spread some cole slaw in the center of a dinner plate and spread around. Center lamb over cole slaw and dust top with mint or cilantro and jalapeno pepper.
