The Silence Of The Lamb Burger

“Lambs. The lambs were screaming.”

Clarice Starling: Lambs. The lambs were screaming.

Hannibal Lecter: They were slaughtering the spring lambs?

Clarice Starling: And they were screaming.

Hannibal Lecter: What became of your lamb, Clarice?

Clarice Starling: They turned it into ground lamb & mixed a 1/2 pound of lamb with 4 pieces of streaky bacon minced fine. Then they added 1 teaspoon of Greek spice & a few dashes of Maggi seasoning. They divided the lamb & bacon mince into 2 balls & smashed them in a sizzling hot cast iron skillet. Cooked for a couple of minutes until a good crust formed, then flipped & topped with feta. They stacked the patties on a toasted bun with tzatziki, spinach, tomato, & pickled red onion. Then they added a side of Greek spice crinkle fries & tzatziki for dipping.

Hannibal Lecter: Sounds like it would be lovely with a nice Chianti, Clarice.
