Lamb Patties with Onions, Peppers, Rosemary and Raisins for #WeekdaySupper

Recipe: Lamb Patties with Onions, Peppers, Rosemary and Raisins

Summary: Rich lamb patties are spiked with sweet fried onions and peppers, raisins and herbal rosemary for an easy, elegant weekday supper.


  • ½ cup raisins (or you could use dried cranberries)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for pan frying
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, stem and seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • ¼ bunch fresh Italian parsley, stemmed and chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 20 grinds black pepper


  1. Place raisins in a 2-cup glass measuring cup, cover with water by ½ inch and microwave on high for 55 seconds. Remove from microwave and allow raisins to steep in hot water while you prepare the rest of the recipe.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 12-inch skillet, add onions and red peppers and sauté for 7-8 minutes, until soft and beginning to color. Add rosemary during the last 2 or so minutes. Stir often so mixture doesn’t stick to skillet. Remove from heat.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add lamb, parsley, salt, allspice and black pepper and mix well with clean hands. Drain raisins well and add them to meat mixture. Add cooked vegetables and stir with a wooden spoon to mix well (or use your hands if you can take the heat from the vegetables).
  4. Shape into 4 patties.
  5. Heat another splash of olive oil in the same skillet and fry patties about 3-5 minutes per side, over medium heat.
  6. Remove from pan and serve with your favorite vegetable side (steamed broccoli? Sautéed spinach or kale?), and some fresh fruit on the plate.
