  • Combine ground lamb and the spice paste together with a fork in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  • Form sausage into patties. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties until no longer pink inside, 5 to 8 minutes per side, depending on the size of the patties.

Cook's Note:

To serve as burgers, top with sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and crumbled feta in a toasted bun.

This recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of Chef's John's Harissa Sauce recipe.
