    Another original from Melissa Diane Smith's book, "Going Against the Grain". I make this just as she wrote it. They're delicious and freeze well.

      Very authentic-tasting and easy to make. I did not have parsley, so I used cilantro and only about a half-teaspoon cinnamon. The lemon juice really enhances the flavor of lamb! Serve with french fries for an authentic "grecian" meal.

      I made these as hamburger patties and fried them instead of baking them. Used oregano, parsley & cinnamon, nice combination of flavors. Next time I will try using mint. Lovely burger much enjoyed - thanks GinnyP
