Sam Talbot's Kale Chips
Kale Chips - Step 1
Take fresh kale leaves and discard the stems if they're too hard. Cut into thirds. Big pieces are okay since they shrink down after being baked. Place in a bowl.
Kale Chips - Step 2
Sprinkle sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper and olive oil on the kale and gently toss, making sure there are no dry spots.
Kale Chips - Step 3
Place kale on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Spread evenly. Grate parmesean cheese on top. Bake at 325 degrees for about 15-20 minutes until crispy.
Lamb Burgers - Step 1
Shuck and chop fresh oregano and add to lamb meat. Add diced red onion, fresh garlic and feta cheese. Mix and shape into 5oz - 6oz patties.
Lamb Burgers - Step 2
Grill on a pan with cooking spray for three and a half to four minutes per side. You don't want to overcook your burgers or they'll turn leathery, so shoot for medium rare/medium.
Lamb Burgers - Step 3
Build your burger by using a toasted bun, baby romaine, roasted tomatoes, red onion, or whatever you desire. Sam suggests a spread of kalamata olives, mayonnaise, salt and pepper and lemon juice, if you prefer. Apply on both sides of the bun.
