Serves 2 | Prep Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes


1lb ground lamb
Kosher salt to taste
3 tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
1 tbsp. ground coriander
1 tbsp. ground cumin
½ tbsp. gound cinnamon
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
½ tsp. gound ginger
½ tsp. ground black pepper
4 slices of freshly baked focaccia or 2 slider buns
30 grams brie cheese
1 tbsp. Bomba sauce
Handful of arugula
2 fresh figs


  1. 1. In a bowl, combine the lamb with all of dry spices and parsley. Mix well.
  2. 2. Divide the lamb into four even portions, form into patties and make an indent in the middle with your thumb.
  3. 3. Stuff each portion of lamb with one portion of brie to form a ball. Flatten each ball once complete.
  4. 4. Place the lamb sliders on a hot grill. After about 1 minutes of grilling on each side, remove the lamb, top with slices of brie and place in the oven at 350F. Remove once the lamb is fully cooked, about 10 to 14 minutes, and the brie cheese melted.
  5. 5. Toast the bread/buns and evenly spread the bomba on one side.
  6. 6. Place the sliders on a bun and top with arugula and 1 to 2 slices of figs.
  7. 7. To serve, use skewers to keep the slider’s shape and plate on a wooden board or platter.

Top Tip: Make sure to mix the meat well with the spices to ensure an even taste and a nice texture.
