Ingredients and Preparation

Medium Yukon gold potato1
Ground lamb (can substitute lean ground beef)1/3 pound
Large egg1
Parsley, finely chopped2 tablespoons
Grainy mustard1 ½ teaspoons
Salt½ teaspoon
Ground pepper1/8 teaspoon
Water2 tablespoons
Olive oil2 teaspoons
  1. Directions
  2. Wash and scrub potato, place in a small pot filled with water and cover. Start off on high heat and then reduce to low once water starts boiling. Simmer (do not boil) until potato is tender when pierced with a fork, about 20-40 minutes. (To decrease cooking time, cut potato into smaller pieces.)
  3. When potato is cooked, drain the water. Place the potato in a mixing bowl and mash. Let the potato cool for a minute, and then mix in ground meat, egg, parsley, mustard, salt, and pepper. Finally, add in the water so that the mixture becomes fairly loose.
  4. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Using a spoon, scoop out about 4 lamb patties and pat them down on the skillet so they are about ¾ of an inch thick. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
