“Whether you spell it kefta or köfte or kufte or some other variation, you can find versions of these lamb or beef meatballs throughout the Middle East. The seasoning mixture here is simple, with spices you should already have on your shelf and you can play around, adding fresh or dried mint, grated onion, or a pinch of cinnamon. And if you like a garlicky yogurt sauce, by all means, add a minced clove.”

The Spiced Middle Eastern Lamb Patties described above sounded perfect when I found them via a quick search on my phone’s Epicurious app for a weeknight meal: quick, easy, reasonably healthy, and tasty.  That all proved to be true: I started assembling ingredients at 6:24 p.m., the Grill-Meister heated up the grill at 7:00, and we were enjoying our concoction by 7:20.  That’s just right for a Monday night. Find the recipe here: Spiced Middle Eastern Lamb Patties with Pita and Yogurt recipe | Epicurious.com .  (And yes, of course we added garlic to the yogurt sauce.)

We topped our lamb with red onions and arugula in addition to the herb-laden yogurt sauce and served the pita alongside a quick cucumber salad
