Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1/2 cup uncooked bulgur
    2 cups onions, chopped
    1 cup parsley and/or mint, fresh, packed
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp ground allspice
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp table salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1 lb lean ground beef
    4 sprays cooking spray
    1 tbsp olive oil, divided
    1 medium lemon, cut into 8 wedges

Directions

Place bulgur in a glass bowl and add just enough water to cover it; microwave on high until water is absorbed, about 1 to 2 minutes. Fluff bulgur with a fork and allow to cool.
Meanwhile, using a food processor, process onions and parsley (or mint) until very well combined. Add cooked bulgur, cumin, allspice, cinnamon, salt and pepper, process thoroughly. Add beef, a little at a time, and process until thoroughly combined (or you can combine beef b y hand, if you prefer).

Working with wet hands, form beef mixture into 16 egg-shaped patties (like the size of a jumbo egg).

Coat a very large skillet with cooking spray, set over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon oil, heat oil until it shimmers. Cook 8 patties, until golden brown, about 6 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and cover to keep warm; repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve hot, warm or cold.
