Lamb Patties

Lamb Patties

We make these as breakfast patties but in reality our teen grabs them as quick and tasty snacks throughout the day. They are easy to make and a nice variation from the pork or beef patties.


  • 1 lb. ground lamb
  • 1/2 medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder


  1. Preheat oven to broil (high setting)
  2. Using a large bowl, mix the lamb, onion and spices.
  3. Form uniform sized patties
  4. Grease the slotted upper pan using a high heat oil. Line the lower drip pan with aluminum foil to facilitate easy cleaning.
  5. Arrange the patties on the top of the slotted upper pan.
  6. Place in oven.
  7. After 9 minutes or when the top browns slightly, flip the patties using kitchen tongs and broil for about 6 more minutes.
  8. Both sides should be lightly brown and the internal temperature should reach 170 F.


Add chopped mint leaves and lemon zest to the lamb mix prior to broiling.

Add a dash of cayenne (to taste) for a spicier dish.

Serve with yogurt tsatsiki or with an Israeli salad of tomatoes and cucumbers.
