Grilled peach lamb burgers


Author Notes: When we think of summer peaches are one of the flavors that comes to mind first. The honeyed flavor lends itself to both sweet and savory dishes so we've been getting creative with it. This recipe was created after having a peach and goat cheese salad at a local restaurant. We decided it would make a great sandwich and added the grilled lamb to up the flavor and springy flavor.

Directions

  1. Place the sliced bread on each plate and top one half of each "bun" with 1 Tbsp of goat cheese. Let this sit at room temp to soften so it is easy to spread on the bread.
  2. Heat grill or griddle over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray to reduce sticking.
  3. Slice the peach into 16 slices and place slices on the pre-heated grill. Grill, flipping as needed, until starting to get marks and soften -- about 2 minutes per side. When donek, remove from the grill and toss in a small bowl with chopped mint and lime juice to coat.
  4. Form the ground lamb into four thin patties and place on hot grill. Cook until done, about 4 minutes per side. These can be cooked along side the peaches.
  5. While the meat cooks spread the goat cheese on the sourdough bread.
  6. Top the cheese side of the bun with the cooked burger. Top the burger with peach mixture and the other half of the bread slice.
  7. This is great served with sweet potato wedges and a light summery cocktail.
