Cooking . . . and cooking and cooking

Mmmkay, a while back, I was looking for a recipe that incorporated ground lamb. I'd bought it on sale, and it's not something that I usually stock. Needless to say, I didn't have alot of recipes in mind for it. So, as I was surfing, I found a recipe for lamb moussaka. The recipe also called for eggplant, which I also had. I decided to give it a try.

Good Lord, the stuff took FOREVER to make. It wasn't particularly difficult, but it was definitely time consuming. Make the meat/tomato mixture and cook it, broil the eggplant in the oven, pre-boil the potato slices, make the white sauce, then layer everything together in the pan and bake for ANOTHER 45 minutes. Eeeek!

It was good, but I won't be making it again. Yeesh. Does anybody have a yummy EASY recipe for ground lamb? I've still got a package in the freezer!

If I remember correctly, Martha Stewart mixes the ground lamb with ground beef in making meatloaf.
I think Emeril had a recipe for Shepard's pie made with the ground lamb.

What about Shawarma or Kibbeh?

I usually make kibbeh with beef, but I suppose that lamb would do just as well. Or lamb burgers? Anybody ever had a lamb burger?
