What do make with Lamb leftovers?

Use them for lunch today with this crazy good lamb grilled cheese. It’s part gyro part what-do-I-have-in-my-kitchen and it’s totally delicious.

If you love lamb as much as I do, check out all my lamb recipes on my sister site, GirlCarnivore – I have a whole archive with savory lamb recipes!

Last week  announced that it was time to kick things up a notch around here. Now, that means getting back in the kitchen and challenging myself with new techniques and recipes that intimidate me. It also means trying new things. Expanding horizons and all that.

This challenge to myself completely contradicts yesterdays post. The cookies may have distracted you, but it was all about making time. The thing is, the kitchen is my time. So even if recipes as simple as a lamb sandwich appear from time to time on PtS, know that they were worthy of a post, and put a smile on my face.

  1. I love where your creativity took you this week – this sandwich looks incredible! All that melted cheese and that delicious lamb…heaven… I’m featuring this post in today’s Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution). I hope you have no objections and thanks always for keeping me inspired with new ideas…

  2. Ermahgerd. I could totally dive face-first into one of these right about now – it’s pouring rain outside, and somehow, grilled cheese always feels like a perfect rainy-day meal.
    Sadly, as I do not have any leftover lamb kicking around, it’s not meant to be… but I’ll definitely be remembering this one for the next time I do have some lamb on hand. 🙂

  3. Now that is one nice looking sandwich. What a great way to use up leftovers.

    This was quite tasty! I’m sure it would have been better with the tzatziki and havarti, but it was quite tasty with just dill and the white cheddar I had on hand. Definitely elevated the leftover lamb! Yum
