Finely dice 1 onion (i used white, i think it wanted green...) so if you use white, only use 1/4 to 1/2 of it
Finely dice 1 clove of garlic
Finely dice 7 oz red pepper (i used half of the pepper)
Add all above to 14 oz ground beef
add 1 egg, 3 tbsp breadcrumbs, 1 tsp thyme
Knead the mixture until it becomes smooth paste. Season generously with salt, pepper, and hot paprika powder.
Make 8 small sausage shaped rolls (3.5 inches) with slightly oiled hands. Stick on metal or wooden skewers and cook under a hot broiler for 8-10 minutes. (we cooked ours on the bbq)
Delicious with a salad :)
This came from a cook book a picked up from ikea, that has 365 recipes for the year. They were quick and easy to make, and enjoyable to eat. i think variations on flavor would be a great experiment. Also some sort of dipping sauce... but a fun recipe now that summer is near.
