Mitraillette

Mitraillette sandwich with lamb burger

If you’ve ever been to Brussels, you’ve seen or maybe tried a Mitraillette. My version features a spiced lamb burger, a pile of crispy fries, and roasted red pepper mayo. This sandwich is highly customizable but always awesome.

Ingredients

Scale

For the roasted red pepper mayo:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup drained roasted red peppers
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne

For the lamb burger:

  • 500 grams or 1 pound ground lamb, aka lamb mince
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika, preferably smoked
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

To assemble:

  • about 1 cup cooked French fries or chips, hot
  • 2 baguettes, cut in half and sliced open
  • Extra toppings of your choice such as pickles, jalapenos, or onions

Instructions

For the roasted red pepper mayo:

  1. Add your mayo, roasted red peppers, and cayenne to a food processor and blitz until smooth and well combined. Taste it to see if you love it, and adjust to your liking by adding a little more of whatever you think it needs.

For the lamb burgers:

  1. Add your ground lamb and all spices and seasonings to a mixing bowl and use your clean hands to mix everything together, trying to evenly distribute the spices. Divide this mixture into four and shape them into oblong burgers.
  2. Heat a cast iron skillet or a grill pan over medium heat, adding a little oil to the pan. Add your lamb burgers and cook them 3-4 minutes per side or until they reach your desired doneness. Allow the burgers to rest for a few minutes while you assemble your sandwiches.

To assemble:

  1. When you have all your elements ready to go, cut your baguettes to about the size of your lamb burgers. I like to add a layer of the roasted red pepper mayo to both sides of the bread, then put on the lamb burger, followed by whatever extras you like. Finally, add a nice mound of crispy fries and an extra dollop of your sauce. Make sure you have a knife and fork to eat this.
