Persian Kebabs

A different take on meatballs.  The flavors are different, the appearance familiar and a mixture that is flexible enough to be grilled, fried, skewered, roasted and even baked–take your pick.


1 cup grated onion

10 tbsp of breadcrumbs

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp paprika

2 tsp for minced garlic

1 lb ground turkey ( or chicken or lamb or a mixture of your choice)

2 tsp of chopped cilantro

2 large eggs

1 Tbsp olive oil


Haha, this is as simple as it gets.  Add everything but the meat and eggs into a food processor and pulse to combine.  Fold in beaten eggs.  Then mix in the meat, just enough to incorporate.  Do not overmix.

Spray with cooking oil and bake in a 375F preheated oven for 20 min.  Adjust cook time to the strength of your oven.

Enjoy !
