1 lb Ground American Lamb

1 tbsp Dill, finely chopped

2 tbsp Cilantro, finely chopped

1/3 cup Parsley, finely chopped

1/2 tsp Garlic powder

1/4 tsp Chili flakes

1/2 tsp Cumin

1/2 small Onion, grated with about 2 tbsp of lemon zest

1/3 cup Panko breadcrumbs

1 Egg

1 tbsp Olive oil

Salt & pepper to taste

Horseradish Dipping Sauce

1/4 cup Mayo

1/4 cup Sour cream

2 tbsp Chives, finely chopped

1 tbsp Horseradish

1 tsp White wine vinegar

Salt & pepper, to taste


1Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Finely chop your ingredients and onions. In a bowl with your ground lamb, add in all your lamb seasonings, spices and herbs. Mix really well and set aside at room temperature.

2In the meantime; in a bowl, mix your mayo, sour cream, chives, horseradish, white wine vinegar and salt and pepper. Mix well and set in the fridge.

3Next, line a baking sheet with parchment paper (optional to add baking oil spray) and take a small ice cream scooper or tablespoon and scoop your meatballs. Shape in your hand as a ball and place on the baking sheet - it makes about 15-16 meatballs.

4Bake for 10 minutes and broil on high for the last 5 minutes, all in the top rack of your oven. Serve with your horseradish sauce.
