  • ½ pound ground lamb

  • 1 egg white

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  2. Combine ground pork, ground beef, ground lamb, and egg white in a large bowl. Add garlic, black pepper, salt, baking soda, cayenne pepper, and paprika. Mix well using your hands; form into finger-length sausages about 3/4-inch thick.
