- 1 small onion about 1/2 cup
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tsp mild (sweet) paprika

- 1 tsp nutmeg freshly ground
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Pulse the onion, parsley, garlic, and spices in a food processor until finely chopped and blended.
Mix the onion and spice mixture with the ground beef until well combined. Microwave a small bit of the meat to cook it, and taste it to check for salt and pepper. Add more as necessary.
Forming ping pong ball-size balls of meat, skewer the balls down the center and form the meat into a thick sausage shape around the skewer. Repeat until the meat is used up.
You can refrigerate the meat at this point for up to a few hours, or grill right away until medium-rare/medium, about 130-135F on a thermometer. Serve with tzatziki and enjoy!
