  • ¾ Pound ground lamb
  • 1/3 Cup carmelized onions, plus more for serving

  • 2 Tablespoons chiffonade parsley
  • 1 large egg
  • Pinch of salt

Soak the bread in milk until it's absorbed. Then fold together the lamb, onions, mint, parsley, egg, and some salt and pepper in a bowl. Scoop out single servings with an ice cream scooper.

Lamb Shopping Tip

Look for meat that is bright red. Red meat turns paler as the hemoglobin within releases oxygen – a sign that the meat has been sitting too long at the butcher's counter.

Lamb Cooking Tip

When browning meat, resist the urge to move the meat – you must allow a flavorful crust to form over high heat. Once it has formed, the meat should slide freely with the shake of a pan.

Lamb Wine Pairing

Most red wines, especially cabernet sauvignon, but also including cabernet franc, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, zinfandel, petite sirah, nebbiolo, nero d'avola, primitivo, barbera, and sangiovese.
