                         -----NUT STUFFING-----
      1/2   c            Coarsely ground lamb
      1/3   c            Pine nuts
      1/8   ts           Salt
                         Pepper
    1       tb           Butter or margarine
                         -----LAMB-----
      1/3   c            Bulgur
    1       lb           Ground lean lamb
      1/4   c            Minced onion
      1/8   ts           Ground oregano
    1 1/2   ts           Salt
                         Pepper
    2       tb           Butter or margarine
 
   Combine 1/2 cup lamb, nuts and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Season to taste with
   pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon butter, add meat mixture and cook, stirring to
   keep crumbly, until light brown.
   
   Meanwhile, rinse bulgur and drain by squeezing handfuls at a time. Combine
   with 1 pound lamb, onion, oregano and 1/2 teaspoon salt and season to taste
   with pepper. Mix well. With wet hands press layer of lamb mixture into
   9-inch pie plate. Top with nut stuffing, then with another layer of meat.
   Smooth surface of meat with wet hand. Cut into wedges before baking as
   crust forms during cooking. Dot with 2 tablespoons butter. Bake at 350F 25
   to 30 minutes, or until meat reaches desired degree of doneness.
