- 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
- 1-teaspoon cumin

- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 fresh lemon for squeezing and garnish, cut into quarters
- 1/8-teaspoon cayenne pepper, (optional)

Recipe:

1. In the bowl with the lamb, add onion, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, cumin, mayonnaise, fresh mint, and salt. Using your hands, mix thoroughly to distribute the ingredients evenly.


2. With a teaspoon, form the mixture into 24 meatballs. Don't level the meat off or pack the meatballs too tightly.


3. Preheat the broiler.


4. Lightly spread canola oil on a baking sheet using a paper towel. Place the meatballs 2 inches apart on the baking sheet, and position the baking sheet 4 inches from the heat source. Broil for about 5 minutes, turning once halfway through.


5. Place toothpicks into each meatball and arrange on a serving platter, squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top. Sprinkle the cayenne pepper over the meatballs at the last minute.


6. Serve with a cup of Tzatziki on the side. You will have some left over.



* The Tzatziki makes a great side dish with grilled shrimp, chicken or beef. Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container. Will keep for 3 days!
