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)

Destructions:

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!
