Recipe by Carlos Leo www.spoonabilities.com

This lamb meatballs recipe is perfect as an appetizer or as a main dish. Serve on a bed of Greek yogurt with a piquillo pepper pesto.



  1. Place a rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat to 425°F.
  2. Combine all the meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix together. Add lamb and mix with your hands until evenly distributed.
  3. Gently roll lamb mixture into 1½" diameter balls (about the size of a golf ball). You should have about 20-21. I use a small ice cream scoop like this one. Place meatballs on a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake meatballs until browned and cooked through - about 8–10 minutes.
Piquillo Pepper Pesto:
  1. Add all ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor and combine.
  2. With the processor running, slowly pour in the olive oil and process until the pesto is thoroughly pureed - about a minute.
  3. Reserve for assembly. If pesto is a bit thick, just add more olive oil. Taste pesto; season with more salt if needed.
