Lamb Burgers with Goat Cheese

Ingredients

1 lb ground lamb
4 brioche or whole-wheat buns
4 tbsp goat cheese, crumbled
1 avocado, pitted and sliced
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly-ground black pepper

Optional Toppings: lettuce, fresh sprouts, slices of red onion, cucumber slices

Instructions

In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together the lamb with the spices until evenly combined. Form into four patties, about 3/4-inch thick. In a grill pan or over an open barbecue grill, cook over medium-high heat until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Meanwhile, lightly toast the buns. When the burgers are cooked, top with the goat cheese and avocado and any other desired toppings, and serve immediately.
