These Greek inspired lamb meatballs make a great appetizer recipe or main course dinner. You can dip them in tzatziki or slather them in tomato sauce.
Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: Greek
Serves: 18
  • 1 Pound Ground Lamb
  • 2½ Ounces Baby Spinach (chopped into small pieces)
  • ½ Cup Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • ¼ Cup Rolled Oats (old fashioned oats)
  • 1 Large Shallot (grated)
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 4 Cloves Roasted Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Rosemary (finely chopped)
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Fennel Seeds (crushed)
  • ½ Teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • ¼ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Farenheit.
  2. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix well. I recommend using your hands to get everything mixed really well.
  3. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes (that will let the oats absorb some of the excess moisture).
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.
  5. Use an ice cream scoop to make even size meatballs. (You can either roll them into balls or just drop the scoops onto the baking sheet.)
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Meatballs are done when the tops are golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and serve.
This made 18 meatballs when I used my larger ice cream scoop (approx. 2 tablespoons).
