Spiced lamb meatballs are a flavorful bite-sized dish. Remember those feta truffles I wrote about? Well these spiced lamb meatballs are the perfect accompaniment to them. They are great for parties or even to make pita pocket sandwich. The dynamite mint yogurt sauce is a must with these meatballs.
1 1/2 pounds ground lamb
1/2 pound ground turkey
1 tablespoon olive oil
Pita Bread for serving
finely shredded zest of 1 lemon (use a Microplane zester)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
In a large bowl, combine ginger, garlic, ras el hanout, salt and pepper.
Add meats and gently combine with hands until spices are just evenly distributed. Do not overmix.
Add oil and swirl to coat.
Transfer meatballs to towel lined pan.
