  1. Soak the bread in water, then squeeze out the excess.
  2. If you have a food processor, put in all the other ingredients and process them briefly-chop the onion finely first.
  3. If you don't have a food processor, mix the ingredients by hand. Crumble the bread into a bowl with the lamb. Add the onion. Beat the egg and add it. Add the herbs, salt, and pepper, and mix.
  4. This mixture can be left to gather flavor for 2-3 hours, or you can leave it all day in the refrigerator in a bowl covered with plastic wrap.
  5. When you're ready to cook, heat the grill to maximum, shape the lamb mixture into patties, oil the broiler pan, and broil for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Some supermarkets sell low-fat, ready-ground lamb, or you can buy fillets and mince them in a food processor.
