Harissa Goat Cheese Lamb Burgers + Spicy Fries

Recipe provided by | The Food Joy

Ingredients

For burger:

2 pounds ground American lamb
1/2 tablespoon butter
5 ounces softened goat cheese
About 1 tablespoon of harissa paste (more if you want it spicier!) Bibb lettuce Kosher salt Black pepper
4 brioche buns

For french fries:

1 bag frozen french fries
Paprika
Chili powder
Kosher salt
Black pepper

Directions

Cook french fries according to packaging. While fries are in the oven, form four patties from the ground lamb (1/2 pound each). Season liberally each side with salt and pepper. Heat a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat. Add butter to skillet. Cook burgers on each side for about 4 minutes for medium-rare.

While burgers are cooking, mix the harissa paste into the goat cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

When fries are finished, place them in a large mixing bowl and season with salt, pepper, and about 3 parts paprika and 1 part chili powder, to taste. Mix the seasoning around so that it evenly covers all the fries. You can use a wooden spoon or just toss the bowl using both hands, flipping the fries slightly with each toss.

Let burgers rest for 1-2 minutes before serving. Place on the bun and then top with goat cheese and bibb lettuce.
