Homemade Iraqi Basturma recipe (breakfast sausage)
Servings: 8 servings
- 1 1/2 lb. ground lamb or ground beef
- 4 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1/2 tsp. Middle Eastern 7 Spice
- 1/2 tsp. paprika powder
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. cayenne
Place meat in a medium-sized bowl.
Add garlic and spices to the meat. Use your hands to distribute the spices throughout the meat.
Fry a small portion of the meat and adjust the spices if necessary.
Feed the meat through the casings, if available. If not, wrap the meat in saran wrap, and freeze partially to make slicing easier.
Place the slices on a tray and freeze them before storing them in a ziplock bag.
To cook, simply defrost a few slices, and fry in an oiled pan, along with some eggs.
