Goat meat burgers with a Mediterranean style feta cheese spread from Emeril Lagasse.



  1. In a bowl combine the goat meet, shallots, mint, garlic, salt, cumin, allspice, ¼ teaspoon of cayenne, and the cinnamon and mix gently to thoroughly combine. Shape the mixture into 6 wide patties about ½ and inch thick and transfer to a large platter. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours, up to overnight.
  2. Make the feta dip: combine the remaining 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, feta cheese, goat cheese, mayonnaise, green onions, 1 tsp of the olive oil, and lemon zest in a bowl and stir to blend well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to overnight.
  3. When ready to cook the burgers: preheat the grill to medium-high. Brush the burgers on both sides with the remaining olive oil. When the grill is hot, add the burgers and cook for about 4 minutes on each side for medium. Serve the burgers on the buns with a few spoonfuls of the feta spread on top. Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, and roasted red peppers, if desired.
