Recipe

Broil these, grill them, or pan-grill them. Any way you cook them, the outside will become crisp, the mozzarella will melt, and the inside will stay pink. A good way to wean kids from McDonald’s.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Cooking time: 30 Minutes, Plus Time To Preheat The Grill

Ingredients

  • Coarse salt (optional)
  • ¼ pound smoked mozzarella
  • 1 pound ground lamb, or a little more
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

 

1. Start a charcoal or wood fire or preheat a gas grill or broiler; the fire should be moderately hot. Or heat a large skillet over medium-high heat for 3 or 4 minutes before you start cooking, then sprinkle it with coarse salt.

2. Cut the cheese into 4 pieces and form the meat into patties around each one; season with salt and pepper.

3. Grill, broil, or pan-grill, 2 to 4 inches from the heat source, for about 3 or 4 minutes per side, or until the outside feels very firm. If you like your meat on the well-done side, move the burgers to a lower heat and cook an additional minute or two longer per side.
