Also, like other sausage and meatball recipes, the meat mixture does well in the freezer, so consider making extra and freezing them in individual portions for a quick dinner or lunch.
Herbed Lamb Sausages
makes about 3 dozen
2 pounds ground lamb
1 onion, minced
6 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped fine
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped fine
4 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped fine
1/2 cup white breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons cream
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Mix all ingredients thoroughly and roll into small cigar-shaped links or round patties. Grill or saute over high heat until the outsides are seared and the insides are cooked but still pink - about 5 minutes each side. Or broil for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. Cook time will depend a lot on the size you make them, so these times are approximate - check often.
