I haven't cooked with lamb in years and I was pleasantly surprised at the taste of these burgers (from a Cookling Light recipe) when lamb is combined with sirloin. The star of the burger was the feta-mint spread which adds a nice flavor.
However, I have been experimenting with sweet potato fries and I finally feel like I've got a good recipe and a method for cutting them. They are much harder than regular potatoes and the key is to microwave them for about 7 to 10 minutes (depending on how many you want to make fries from). But I also received a mandoline slicer as a bridal shower gift on Sunday which I have yet to test. My current recipe for the sweet potato fries is below.
Sweet Potato Fries
4 sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon olive oil (or vegetable oil)
Salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Wash the sweet potatoes and prick them several times with a fork. Microwave them for 10 minutes, however, the time will depend on your microwave and the size of the sweet potatoes. What you want is for the sweet potatoes to be soft which makes them easier to cut. Give them a few minutes to cool off before cutting and then slice into strips that resemble fries.
In a bowl, combine the slices with the cumin, salt, and oil. Bake the slices on a greased cookie sheet for approximately an hour. Sweet potatoes are tricky because they don't get as crispy as regular potatoes but you also don't want them to burn. I have a tendency to cook mine longer than shorter because we like them more crispy but that also means we have a few burned fries.
