365: No Repeats: Lamb Patties with Garlic and Mint Over Mediterranean Chopped Salad

The salad portion of Lamb Patties with Garlic and Mint Over Mediterranean Chopped Salad (pg 80) is like any other Greek salad. I assumed that there was lettuce involved, but it turns out there wasn't. I added it anyway, because I'd already bought it.

The patties were ground lamb, parsley, too much cumin and too much steak seasoning. This is a lamb dish for people who don't like lamb. It could have been burger meat, and I'd never know the difference. I like lamb to taste like lamb. This tasted like cumin. Granted, I did forget to buy the mint that was supposed to be mixed in with the meat, and that may have cut the cumin a little, but I doubt it would be enough.
I could only eat one of those patties. Heavy stuff.
Conclusion: Just okay. Not bad, but I don't think that lamb needs a lot of seasoning.

The closest pumpkin patch is 4 hours away, so we're heading out of town for the long weekend, in search of Fall. Be back on Tuesday!


  1. Good luck on the great pupkin hunt! I can't believe you have to go that far.

  2. Have fun at the pumpkin patch!

  3. Hope you were able to find some Fall. Probably not easy that far south.

    That's too bad that the lamb patty recipe didn't work out. I really like lamb too and from the title it sounds like it would be good. But too much spice will kill anything, such a shame.

  4. Woo hoo! I hope your trip to the pumpkin patch was a blast!
