Categories: Greek, Main dish, Sandwiches
Yield: 6 servings

2 lb Lean lamb, ground
2 Bread slices;toasted,crushed
1 ts Allspice; pounded (?)
1 ts Coriander; crushed
1 Garlic clove; crushed
1 Onion; grated
1 ts Chopped fresh savory
Salt & freshly ground pepper
3 Slices bacon (?!!)
6 Pita bread pockets
2 Tomatoes; sliced thin
Vinegar & oil to taste
1 c Chopped fresh parsley
1 c Plain yogurt

In a large bowl, combine the ground lamb with the bread, allspice,
coriander, garlic, onion, savory, and salt and pepper, and knead
thoroughly. The mixture should be spicy, though not too herby, and
hold its shape. Break into 5 sections, each as large as a navel
orange, then break each section into 6 balls. Knead and flatten
slightly to a thickness of about 3/4". Cut the bacon slices into
widths equal to these balls, keeping the slices of bacon between
them. Slip a cane skewer through the centers and roll gently with the
palms to smooth the edges. (There will be 5 or 6 skewers, depending
on their length.) Cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to
cook, set on a broiler tray or grill and cook under moderate heat,
turning every 5 minutes. (The bacon will baste the meat.) The
surface will be crusty and the inside cooked within 25 minutes. To
serve: Put out the bread, meat, tomatoes seasoned with the vinegar
and oil, parsley and yogurt in separate dishes. Guests may open
pocket bread and stuff them with meat and seasonings.
