Spicy Lamb Patties

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars
12

"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."

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...

wow...these are soooo good! I made them into meatballs and cooked them stove-top then put them in the oven for a bit and baked them. yum!

This was very similarly spiced to a dish at my favorite Indian restaurant. I did up the spice slightly, since so many other reviewers suggested it. I also tried the yogurt sauce, and it was an ...

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
