I was sooo lazy today. It’s hot, but there were those packages and packages of ground lamb in the freezer to be gotten through.
The sweet potato slices I made were not as crispy as I would have liked but they were good, especially with the sweet chili mayonnaise. Great for quaffing the odd glass of wine or beer.
Why did I buy so much ground lamb?!
Lamb Burgers Tzatziki and Fried Sweet Potato
1 lb ground lamb
1 tbsp mint, chopped
Salt and pepper
4 Hamburger rolls, toasted
1 large sweet potato, cut into rounds
Piment d’Espelette or hot paprika
Mix the lamb, mint, salt and pepper together, then form into 4 patties. Set aside.
Dust the sweet potato in cornstarch, then fry in the peanut oil until crisp. Sprinkle with salt and the piment or paprika. Set aside, keeping warm.
Grill the lamb patties on a stove top grill or on the barbecue, then layer them on the rolls with tomato, roquette, cheese and tzatziki.
