  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins


1 lb Ground American lamb

1/2 tsp Garlic powder

1/2 tsp Salt

pinch Pepper

2/3 cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded

Fresh arugula

Fig preserves

Brioche buns


1Prep: Divide the meat in half, and then in half again. Flatten each piece out, and add 1/3 cup of cheese onto two of the four halves. Add the top half to each cheese-filled patty, and press the edges together to seal up your cheese-stuffed burger.

2Cook the Burgers: Cook the burgers over medium heat on the stovetop or on a grill, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Check the inside for desired doneness by using a meat thermometer - 145 degrees F is medium rare, 160 degrees F is medium, and 170 degrees F is well done.

3Serve + Store: Serve on toasted brioche buns with a big schmear of fig preserves and a handful of fresh arugula! Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days.
