Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Cut the top off of the head of garlic, and place onto a small, oven safe dish.
  2. Bake the garlic in the preheated oven until the cloves are soft and golden brown, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven, and cool. Once cool enough to handle, squeeze the roasted garlic into a mixing bowl. Add the lamb, goat cheese, chipotle peppers, rosemary, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, salt, and pepper; mix well. Form the mixture into 4 patties.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the lamb patties for 1 minute on each side, then reduce the heat to medium-low, and continue cooking to your desired degree of doneness, about 2 minutes per side for medium-well. About 1 minute before the patties are ready, pour in the remaining 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, and allow it to thicken and glaze the burgers. Serve on toasted ciabatta buns.

I really looked forward to making this, but unfortunately, it fell really short. At first, I was enticed by the combination of flavors - spicy, savory, sweet, and sour - but unfortunately the chipotle peppers completely overwhelmed the dish. The recipe did not call for draining the chipotles from the adobo sauce. This made the patties very soft and difficult to work with. The burger just would not stay together. If I make this again, I would substitute fresh chopped jalepenos for the chipotles and drastically reduce the amount so that I could taste the other flavors.

This was an experiment for me!! I've never cooked lamb before, but recently found some pre-made patties in the quick sale meat section, so I decided to try them. Since they were already made into patties and wrapped with bacon, I can't give a full 5-star rating because I didn't follow this recipe exactly - I used the salt, pepper, rosemary and some minced garlic as a rub - then brushed them with maple syrup during cooking. I liked the flavor enough, that I will be keeping this recipe to make as directed - I think ground lamb as a burger with the other ingredients mixed in and served with roasted potatoes as a side will be an excellent meal.
