Exotic Lamb Burgers

1 1/2 pounds ground lamb
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon - (to 1/2)
Salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
1/4 cup soft fresh goat's cheese (or cream cheese if for kids)
2 tablespoons chopped chives
Roughly-chopped fresh mint or cilantro -- for garnish
Finely-minced hot jalapeņo pepper -- (optional)

In a mixing bowl combine the ground lamb with the cinnamon and season to taste with salt and pepper. Saute a bit of the mixture to taste if seasoning is right or not.

Mix the goat's cheese with the chives.

Divide the lamb into 4 portions and shape each one into a patty. Press your thumb in the center to create a pocket in the burger. Take about a tablespoonful of the cheese mixture and set it in the indentation. Enclose the lamb patty around the cheese to enclose it completely. Either grill, broil or saute them for about 4 minutes a side.

To serve, spread some cole slaw in the center of a dinner plate and spread around. Center lamb over cole slaw and dust top with mint or cilantro and jalapeņo pepper, if desired.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
