Yield: 4 servings
|2 \N||Thick slices day old white bread; crusts removed|
|450 grams||Best quality minced beef or lamb|
|1 \N||Onion; grated or very|
|\N \N||; finely chopped|
|1 teaspoon||Ground cumin; (optional)|
|\N \N||Salt and pepper|
|\N \N||Olive oil|
|\N \N||Chilli flakes|
|\N \N||Dried oregano|
Soak the bread in water for 10 minutes. Drain and squeeze dry, then crumble. Mix with the meat, onion, cumin (if using), salt and pepper, then whizz in a processor or pass through a mincer. Knead the mixture with your hands for a few minutes until smooth and cohesive.
Divide into 12 portions and roll each one into either a tubby sausage shape or a small rugby ball. Brush with oil and grill for 5-6 minutes until just cooked through, but still slightly pink at heart.
Serve with chilli and oregano for those who want to spice them up. A salad of tomato, lettuce and cucumber is a good accompaniment.
