  • 800g ground lamb
  • 2 green onions, finely sliced
  • Salt and ground pepper
  • 8 bacon slices
  • 4 big hamburger buns, inside well buttered
  • About 200g unripened goat cheese
  • Alfalfa sprouts
  • Aragula
  • Dijon mustard and ketchup



  • Preheat the oven at 400°F. Preheat the BBQ at 500°F and reduce heat intensity at medium.
  • Place the lamb in a big bowl then add the green onions. Season with salt and pepper then mix well with your hands for a couple of minutes. Form 4 large patties then place in a big plate.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then add the bacon slices. Cook for about 10 minutes on each side until crispy! Put on a paper towel to remove fat excess. Keep bacon warm.
  • Meanwhile, cook the lamb patties on the BBQ! On a lightly oiled grill, place the meat and cook for 2-3 minutes. Give them a 45° rotation then cook for another 2-3 minutes. Flip and repeat process! 2-3 minutes of cooking, 45° rotation then another 2-3 minutes of cooking. Meat should be cooked! Verify doneness because cooking time will vary depending on patty thickness. Don’t forget to grill the buns at the end!
  • It is now time to build that masterpiece. Spread a good dash of Dijon mustard in the bottom bun and some ketchup in the top bun. Add a small handfull of aragula on the mustard followed by a big chunk of goat cheese. Place the patty on top, add some alfalfa, 2 bacon slices then close with the top bun! I strongly suggest to poke it with a long pick in order for the burger to stay in place! Now just do the same with the other burgers. Eat immediately!
