Goat Burgers on Garlic Bread

Tonight’s surprise culinary delight: goat burgers on garlic bread.

I had no idea what to make for dinner; we had chicken in creamy garlic sauce with rice or pasta last night, and I wanted to use up one of our packages of minced mutton, some of the processed cheese slices, and one of the loaves of utterly delicious garlic bread. So, here’s a recipe for tonight’s dinner:

Goat Burgers on Garlic Bread

  • 500gm minced goat (could substitute mutton/lamb)
  • 2 tbsp Mexican spices
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
  • sufficient slices of garlic bread for serving (either as ‘burgers’ proper or as sliders)


Mix goat, spices, and salt together. Let it sit and the flavours mingle for appx. 30 minutes. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat on the stove; fry up the burgers. Add cheese if desired; put burgers on garlic bread, and place under broiler/in convection oven briefly to crisp and warm the bread through.

You could, I suppose, grill them – but we have no grill, and thus, we have our precious frying pans. Getting a stovetop tandoor is next on our list. 😉

For dessert, we had chocolate mousse – I found a recipe today and tried it, modifying the instructions slightly. We have no electric mixer, so I spent about twenty minutes whisking an egg white by hand, but the result was about a cup of chocolate mousse that was well worth the time spent. Next time, I’ll double the recipe and add some dark-brewed coffee, to make some mocha mousse.

Dinner, usually, is some sort of Indian-?? amalgamation: butter chicken with pasta, chicken vindaloo, chicken curry, chicken with spicy lentils, etc. I’ll make paneer for myself (too mild for Adam), and usually my lunches are veg – mutter paneer, veg curry, some sort of daal and flatbread, etc. Having a stint with food poisoning last week has made me bid farewell to the peculiar bacon we get out here – it was either that or a bad egg, but I’m willing to bid a fond adieu to pork products, and function off fish, chicken, goat, and veg. I need to learn how to properly clean a fish before I start making things at home, but the fish you can get from the one guy in town is pretty darned good!
