Hi, friends! Happy Monday! This recipe was actually one that I created over the holidays but didn’t get a chance to share! Personally, I always kind of think of Lamb as a rare and exotic treat because we don’t eat it that often.
It’s usually available year around, it just isn’t a staple in our house. I figured I’d share it this week because I think this would be a fun “make at home” Valentine’s Day dinner.
Do you usually go out or eat in on Valentine’s Day? We almost always eat in because we don’t think ahead to make reservations and we don’t like to wait.
So we make it a fun night to cook in! Only this year it’s weird because it’s Ash Wednesday, so technically Valentine’s Day is a fast/no meat day for practicing Catholics.
So as you can guess we won’t be having this (but I totally wish we were!), I’m following WTE? Meal Plans this week which included two vegetarian days just in case you are practicing lent or want to participate in Meatless Monday. If you are looking for some fun cook at home date night meals for Valentine’s Day, check these out:

For lent, Mr. Hungry and I decided to give up
eating out solo or together. We will still go out with friends because I need some sort of social life but lately, we’ve been a little too reliant on eating on just the two of us, especially on the weekends!
It’s so easy to hit up the Whole Foods hot bar on a Friday night instead of cooking at home, but also kind of expensive. I’m also giving up chocolate in addition to the caffeine I’ve already given up. Apparently, I like to torture myself.
Technically I still haven’t let go of all caffeine yet, I’m down to three tablespoons of caffeinated coffee and 8 ounces decaf. Next week two tablespoons haha, seriously hanging on here for dear life. Check back on Wednesday for a super delicious clean eating dessert to go with your dinner! And if you need a festive edible gift to hand out to coworkers and friends, try my frosted thumbprint cookies!
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Are you giving up anything for Lent?
Cranberry & Goat Cheese Lamb Sliders
Cranberry & Goat Cheese Sliders
- Preheat oven to 400F & line a baking sheet with parchment/foil and grease it.
- Clean and then slice the sweet potato into ¼ inch rounds. Lay rounds on baking sheet, season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 15ish minutes until the rounds are fork tender but not mushy.
- While the sweet potato rounds are baking, combine ground lamb, ½ yellow onion, one tablespoon avocado oil, ½ tsp dill, ½ tsp oregano, ½ tsp salt and minced garlic. Form into eight equal size patties.
- Heat 1 tablespoon avocado oil on medium on a skillet. Cook patties for 5 minutes on each side until cooked all the way through and center of patties reach 165F.
- Assemble sliders by starting with one sweet potato round on the bottom, smear with ½ ounce goat cheese (about a tablespoon), add lamb patty, smear with one tablespoon cranberry sauce, and top with another sweet potato round. Repeat until you have eight sliders.
