My friend gave me this recipe. When she came to visit for a weekend, I decided to make it for her. She says she has a better recipe, yet, but until she chooses to share it, this is the one I'll use.
I chose to make the patties, and fry them up. I slipped a patty into half a pita, add a little tzadziki sauce, and you have a nummy sandwich! They're easy to make ahead of time, too.
