Deacon Paul’s Kibbee
Main part of the recipe!
3 lbs twice ground learn lamb
1 cup wheat germ, softened (cover with hot water for 15 minutes, cool under cool water. Let dry overnight in the refrigerator)
1 ½ tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. allspice
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
Pepper Relish (grind onion and red pepper in blender)
1 lemon (juice only)

Make a day ahead part of the recipe
Meat and Pine Nut Filling
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound ground lamb, once ground
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown the pine nuts in butter until golden. Then add meat, onion, and spices. Sauté for 10 to 12 minutes. Recipe may be increased if more filling is needed. Store in the refrigerator, in a covered bowl, until ready to use it.

Butter the bottom of a 9 x 12 cape pan or glass Pyrex dish. Spread a half-inch layer of kibbee on the bottom of the pan, making sure it is smooth. Spread the lamb stuffing mix evenly over the kibbee layer. Place the remaining kibbee over the stuffing mix by making thin paddies covering the entire dish. Then smooth out. Keep dipping your hands in cold water so the kibbee will not stick to your hands.

With a sharp knife, score the top layer 1/2 inch deep in a diamond-shaped design 1 inch apart. Make indentations with your index finger and fill those holes with a thin pad of butter. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and squeeze with lemon juice. Place under the broiler for 10 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes before cutting.
The baked kibbee should be golden brown. When serving, cut along the diamond-shaped wedges.
