1 1/2 lb Ground lamb
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Dried hot red pepper flakes, crushed
1 tbl Olive oil
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp Ground black pepper
1 tsp Ground cumin
2 tsp Finely minced garlic
1 tbl Corn oil
Put the lamb in a mixing bowl and add the ingredients up to and including the minced garlic.
Blend the mixture thoroughly by hand.
To test the sausage for seasoning, shape a small portion into a patty.
Cook the patty in a lightly-oiled skillet and season to taste.
Shape the mixture into eight equal balls, then flatten each into a patty.
Heat the oil in a heavy skillet and add the patties.
You may do this in two batches, depending on the skillet size.
Cook the patties for 8 minutes, turning when necessary.
Drain on paper towels.
