Spicy Grilled Lamb Patties

Isis Bakeet


I grew up in a large family of good cooks. My Father was Egyptian and my Mother was half Hungarian and half Italian. I was always an observant person and enjoyed helping my parents cook. It was a pleasure to eat such wonderful food as they served! I watched and learned so much from them.
My own children and friends and siblings enjoy MY versions of well-loved dishes. I hope you will, too!

1 LB
ground lamb
6 oz
crumbled feta cheese
2 clove
garlic, peeled and finely minced
1/4 cup
minced red onion.
1 small sprig(s)
fresh rosemary, minced fine
crushed red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil to brush on prepared patties before grilling.


1Have lamb at room temperature to assure even cooking. Preheat charcoal or gas grill or use a grill pan indoors on your stovetop.
2Combine all ingredients and blend well. Form into 4 patties of medium thickness so they stay juicy. Brush lightly with olive oil on all sides to prevent sticking.
3Grill over hot coals until a meat thermometer registers medium rare to medium doneness for lamb. Overcooking is NOT recommended for lamb.
4I like to serve these with grilled flatbread and a salad of Lettuce, chopped tomatoes, oil-cured Moroccan olives, a bit of crumbled feta and a sprinkling of toasted pine nuts. I dress the salad very simply using a few TBSPS. good olive oil, fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper and a bit of Oregano. You may even enjoy combining the patties and salad and making a sandwich with the flatbread. However you choose to eat it, I believe you will enjoy it!
