mini kebab burgers and baked fries

Mini Herbs and Garlic Kebaburgers

The traditional way to make kebab is to wrap the ground meat around long, flat metal skewers known as shipudim, but I find this method challenging. The meat needs to be really finely chopped, and sometimes it has a hard time adhering to the skewers. Making patties and cooking them straight on the grill—like little burgers but so much better—makes this an easy every-night thing instead of a production.
