Tacos with ground lamb?

I took out a pound of lean ground lamb figuring I'd come up with something to make with it, and I thought why not tacos? Is a typical taco seasoning going to taste good with lamb? Anything I should do differently (just your basic quick taco here, nothing fancy), or should I just proceed as if it were ground beef?

For me personally, that would be ruining the wonderful flavor of ground lamb. What about just plain "lamb burgers"? They're one of my favorite ways of using the wonderful fresh local free-range/organic ground lamb I get at our farmers market.

I don't know how many folks you're feeding, but you could make 4 small or 2 honking big nicely seasoned burgers. No rolls necessary - just plate with the toppings & sides of choice. (I LOVE lamb burgers topped with feta cheese, raw red onion, & pitted Kalamata olives - but heck, they're even delicious plain!)

I thought about lamb burgers too, might give that a try. I even thought about gyros but I don't have any cucumber or yogurt to make the sauce for that (tzatziki or however it's spelled). Only feeding two though, but of course reheats are always welcome as I have a microwave at work.

This is a delicious burger or kebab. You can halve the recipe and make it with all lamb if you want.

Lule Kebab

1 Lb Ground Beef

1 Lb Ground Lamb
1 Large Onion, minced
1/2 C Parsley, minced
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper (optional)
2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Allspice
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/3 C Tomato Sauce

Mix all the ingredients by hand. Shape golf ball size amounts onto a skewer for kebabs or into patties for grilling as a burger.
