Mediterranean Lamb Meatballs

This was my first time making a recipe with ground lamb and it turned out great! We made this beautiful Mediterranean meal on Sunday night and I’m excited to share how to do it with y’all. If you haven’t tried lamb, now is the time! If you don’t like lamb, feel free to sub it out with any other form of ground meat. You can use this recipe as a main dish or an appetizer. We mixed up some healthified tzatziki sauce to go with it, as well as the beet hummus I posted yesterday on my Instagram. Serving suggestion pictured above! I made a salad with mixed greens, tzatziki sauce, hummus, cucumber, tomatoes, @woolwich_dairy 100% goats milk feta cheese, and avocado!!
