Moroccan American Lamb Kofta Eggs Benedict


Lamb Kofta Patties

  • 2 pounds ground American Lamb
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, minced
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Generous seasoning salt and pepper 

Hollandaise Sauce

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 lemon, juiced


  • 5 English muffins, halved
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Harissa paste
  • 10 eggs
  • Dash paprika


For the Lamb Kofta Patties: Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Divide the meat mixture into 10 sections, roll, and form into patties. These should fit your English muffins perfectly once they are cooked.

Heat a grill to medium-high heat (around 400 degrees F) and sear the patties on both sides until cooked through, roughly 4-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness.

For the Hollandaise Sauce: Start by melting the butter in a saucepan. While that is melting, whisk up all the other ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Slowly add the melted butter, while whisking the sauce together. 

Toast and butter your English muffins and spread them with the harissa.

Top each half with a grilled kofta patty.

For the Poached Egg: Use a deep pot of water, add a splash of vinegar to the water, and add fresh eggs. (It helps to crack the eggs and add them to a pinch bowl or ramekin first, then carefully drop them into a metal mesh sieve in the water).

After a few seconds, you can remove the sieve and let the eggs boil for 3 minutes prior to removing them. They will be perfectly poached!

Place the poached eggs on the lamb kofta patty, drizzle the hollandaise, and sprinkle with paprika.
