Ingredients

2 pounds ground lamb
1/2 tablespoon butter
5 ounces softened goat cheese
About 1 tablespoon of harissa paste or more if you want it spicier

Bibb lettuce

Salt and pepper
4 brioche buns

1 bag frozen french fries
Paprika
Chili powder 

Preparation

  1. Cook french fries according to packaging. While fries are in the oven, form four patties from the ground lamb (1/2 pound each). Season each side liberally 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.
  2. While burgers are cooking, mix the harissa paste into the goat cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. 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. Using a wooden spoon mix the seasoning around so that it evenly covers all the fries.
  4. Let burgers rest for 1 to 2 minutes before serving. Place on the bun and then top with goat cheese and Bibb lettuce.
