Ema's Lamb Kebabs

My mom once got a recipe from some friends of hers for a turkey kebab. She thought it was nice but could be improved with lamb and other ingredients. I don't like lamb that much but I have to say that these patties are quite nice.
-Ground lamb: I used about 1 kilo to make about 12 kebabs
-Finely chop parsley, chili pepper, (red) onion-Use either bread crumbs or crackers, ground up fine-Beat 2-3 eggs
-Have cumin, salt, anything else you'd like (~a tbsp of each)
Cook 1:
-Use about 2/3 of your beaten eggs, mix it with the vegetables and spices and the lamb. Mix well
-Coat your fingers in a bit of beaten egg, and form a kebab (an oblong, thick object) or a patty
The stuff should be mixed very well.
Cook 2:
-Grilling is the best way to cook these. Around 8 or 9 minutes on each side, or until cooked all the way through.
-Any herbs would work well in this, I think: cilantro, basil, chives, etc. Use whatever you have on hand.
-If you want to go easy on the eggs or if the mixture is too dry, you can add a bit of water; what works much better is a little beer
