Spicy Lamb Patties

Made  times

"I was forced to create these when my favorite brand stopped making their lamb meatballs, which were a staple in my little food-obsessed world. They're even more scrumptious with a small side of plain yogurt with some mint and cumin stirred into it. Add rice or couscous and a green salad and you have a tasty, easy, somewhat elegant dinner! This recipe can also be used to make meatballs for frying, if you prefer."

I made these to grill on a charcoal grill and they were terrific! The only change I made was to add about 1 tbsp. of paprika in order to give the juice a more 'red' color as I was trying to get...

We did not like these at all. They tasted gamey. Maybe that is how ground lamb is suppose to taste or maybe it was a problem with our ground lamb. I can't bear to serve the leftovers.

These were good but I did make a few changes. First I used a fresh green chili pepper instead of the dried chili flakes and it gave it a nice, subtle heat. I added an egg to help hold everything...

Super tasty, hubby and I both loved it. We broiled it because we're doing a specific diet where we can't fry things and we live in upstate NY so grilling is pretty much out of the question this...

I never would have bought ground lamb but finally did because it looked nice and it was very cheap. Searched the net for something that looked appealing, and lucked into this. I backed off a bi...

Delicious with the feta orzo recipe from this site and homemade tzatziki. I served it with a salad of sliced tomates, cucumbers, feta and red onions with drizzled olive oil

Very easy, tasty way with ground lamb. I served in a pita with tomato, lettuce and mayo.
