Preheat broiler. Broil lamb patties until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes on each side.

Soft Bread Crumbs: To retain the light texture; take 2 to 4 day old bread and pull it apart with a fork using a gingerly motion. Do not crush bread with the hand that is holding it. To measure it, pile lightly into a cup; do not pack them down. OR Preheat oven to 250° then turn it off; put several slices bread in oven and heat several minutes; turn over; heat several minutes; use food processor to make crumbs.
