Adana Kebabs 1.0

I started experimenting with kebabs after we went to a Turkish restaurant the other day.  These are savory, but the spice mix still needs some work.  I sense much kebab making in the future.  My beloved hubby stands ready to do his official taste tester duty.  ;)  He is also the official grill man ehehehe.  Look at those beautiful grill lines!  Man against fire.....grrrr....rawrrr.

This recipe is based on one I found in the New York Times.  Normally these are shaped thinner and longer, but I went with a thicker style for ease in grilling....though I could go a little thinner.  I was totally lazy when I took the picture too....I didn't show the side of Tzatziki and pide breadRoasted vegetable spread also makes a great dip for this meal as well.

These are actually quite simple to make and so yummy.  The extras freeze nicely for later grilling which is fairly sweet.
