For the Truffle Cheese Sauce

1. If using black truffles, grate around ¾ of the truffle into the grated Kerrygold Vintage Cheddar Cheese, then set aside.

2. Add the Kerrygold Original Irish Butter, truffle oil and flour to a small saucepan and place on medium-low heat.

3. As the butter starts to melt, whisk to combine. Start adding the milk, a little at a time, whisking continuously, until all the milk is incorporated. Let the mixture cook for a couple of minutes, stirring regularly. Start adding the milk, a little at a time, whisking continuously, until all the milk is incorporated.

4. Next, add the grated Kerrygold Vintage Cheddar (including truffle if using), and stir continuously until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.

5. Season with salt/truffle salt. Remove from the heat and serve immediately. Shave or grate some extra black truffle over the top if using.

For the Lamb Burger

1. Cook the lamb burger patties in a lightly oiled pan for approx. 4 – 5 minutes a side (depending on their size).

2. Add the olive oil, mushrooms, garlic, herbs and seasoning to a pan and sauté over medium heat until the mushrooms start to get colour and soften. Remove and set aside.

3. Slice the buns in half. Use as-is or toast them in the oven, cut sides up, for 8 minutes at 180°C. Once toasted, spread the cut sides of the buns with Kerrygold Butter Spread then assemble your burgers.

4. Place the micro herb salad leaves or other salad leaves on the bottom bun, layer with the mushrooms, and then place the burger patty on top. Add a generous amount of sauce to the patty, then grate over some additional black truffle if using.

5. Add the top of the bun on top and serve.
