This bomb explodes with flavor. A grilled sandwich of tender, sliced lamb is served on a Portuguese muffin. The chilies add heat and the melted cheese provides just the right amount of ooze.

Ingredients

1⁄4 cup sautéed onions
1⁄3 lb. thinly sliced, rare roast leg of lamb
Diced serrano chile pepper, to taste
1 lime, juiced
Caribbean-style hot sauce, to taste
1 bolo levedo (Portuguese muffin; see note) or sandwich-size English muffin, split
1⁄4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp. garlic butter

Note: Similar in shape to an English muffin, but slightly sweet.

Steps

1. Heat sautéed onions in a skillet or on a griddle; add sliced lamb, serrano pepper, lime juice, and hot sauce and heat through.

2. Meanwhile, sprinkle shredded cheese on bottom of muffin; grill or griddle in garlic butter, along with the top, until muffin is crisp and cheese is melted.

3. Place lamb mixture on top of muffin half with cheese; close sandwich and serve immediately.

Restaurateurs in Amherst, Mass., aren’t happy with UMass Dining .

Registered dietitian Dianne Sutherland told local NBC affiliate WWLP News in May that the high quality of food served on campus means students aren’t visiting neighborhood eateries as frequently as those businesses might like.

“Even our vendors who we work with, they get complaints from the restaurants that students are staying on campus,” she said. “They are already paying for the food; why should they [go] off campus to eat?” More than 19,000 Amherst students are on a meal plan—6,000 of whom live off campus...
