Lamb Burgers with Gorgonzola in a Pita Pocket

 

DSC_0012

 

1 lb. ground lamb (grass fed from Lau Family Farms)
1/2 a large red onion, chopped
chopped fresh herbs (whatever you’ve got around)
pepper
salt
olive oil
gorgonzola or blue cheese

Saute the onion in olive oil until soft. Combine onion, lamb, salt, pepper, and chopped herbs. I made 3 patties.

Before laying them on the grill, rub olive oil on them so they don’t stick—the lamb is pretty lean. Let them rest while you warm the pita pockets on the grill, which gives them a little flavor and softens them up nicely. Layer the burger and the gorgonzola inside the pita pocket for a nice tidy little package that’s easy to eat. Because the meat has rested a minute, the juices won’t run all over your hands when you bite into this decadent burger.

Serves 3 people with normal appetites.
