Lamb burgers with fresh figs
1 lb ground lamb
1 tsp ground cumin
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt black pepper - to taste
splash of balsamic vinegar
3-4 firm-but-ripe fresh figs, roughly chopped
bleu cheese (we used buttermilk bleu)
Combine all but figs in a medium bowl and work lamb with your hands to combine. Add the figs and mix gently until well incorporated. Form ground lamb into four patties, and refrigerate for about 15-20 minutes.
Heat grill pan or charcoal grill to medium-high. Grill burgers for 4-5 minutes/side (medium to medium rare) -- or until cooked to your liking.
Serve burgers on a nice, crusty roll topped with crumbled bleu cheese.
