Lamb Burgers with Smoked Gouda
The cheese on the inside of these burgers not only lends a smokiness even if you don't grill them over hot coals, but the melted cheese helps prevent the interior from being overcooked.
- 1 1/2 - 2 lbs (675-900 g) ground lamb
- 4 - 6 thick slices smoked gouda cheese
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Form the lamb around the cheese to make 4 to 6 patties. Season with salt and pepper and grill, broil, or pan-fry until browned on both sides and firm to the touch, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serves 4 to 6.
