1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup chopped raisins

2 eggs

1/4 bunch fresh mint leaves, chopped

1/4 bunch fresh parsley leaves, chopped

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the ground lamb, bread crumbs, walnuts, raisins, eggs, mint, parsley, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl and mix thoroughly until completely consistent.

Serve with your favorite sauce and enjoy.
