Schwarma Spice Blend Hamburger  & The Attack By The Burger Intruder 

This title was suggested by Raizel. She has confessed to being our very own Burger Intruder. 

Recently, I have been experimenting with different spice blends. Most of my recipes are low fat, all natural and fast and easy. Therefore, I find the best way to add pizazz to a dish is by interesting and balanced seasoning. 

Last week, I thought I would try making schwarma hamburgers.


1 lbs. ground meat

1 tablespoon schwarma spice blend, approximately 

1 teaspoon meat spice blend (posted earlier on blog)

Schwarma Spice Blend

Blend together:

1 tablespoon cumin, coriander and garlic 

1/2 tablespoon paprika 

1 teaspoon turmeric, and pepper 

1/2 teaspoon cloves, cinnamon and cayenne pepper 

Store in covered jar.

Instructions for hamburgers:

Blend spices and meat together. Shape into patties.

The secret to making these burgers great is to not over crowd them in the pan.  This way they become grilled and not steamed.

 Here are the pictures:

In the pan:


Half eaten, before I could get a picture:

Caught by the Burger Intruder!


Raizel said, “It was so good and I had to get my hands on it. I don’t know why. It is so addicting?!”

It’s a funny story, so I thought I would share it on the blog.
