  • 2 lbs ground lamb
  • ¾ cup golden raisins
  • 1 container (6 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
  • ¼ cup olive oil flavored mayonnaise
  • 1 medium red onion, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and black pepper

Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat, or preheat your oven to 400. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and separate into 8 even portions. Mold meat mixture around flat metal skewers, and grill or bake to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side (grill) or about 20 minutes (oven).

Give these kabobs a Greek twist by replacing the goat cheese with feta, and swapping the parsley for finely chopped oregano. Top with a mixture of Greek yogurt, diced cucumber, roasted garlic, salt and pepper.
