This is an easy meatballs recipe but tastes great. I just use a bottle of pasta sauce and tinned tomatoes for the sauce which makes it even easier.

These little meatballs, made from a mixture of minced lamb and rice, flavoured with thyme, lemon and nutmeg, are grilled on cocktail sticks with vegetables for easy eating. The classic Greek egg and lemon dipping sauce has a tangy flavour, which is a perfect partner for the meatball kebabs.

Exceptionally flavourful, lamb is a super source of niacin and zinc. Like all the other types of red meat, it also supplies a useful amount of iron.

I made these as mini lamb burgers but you could make them normal size or eat them like meatballs. Good as party finger food.

Lamb makes a much lighter meatball than beef and these ones have feta in the inside and are cooked in a sweet and sour sauce.

Kofta is a Middle Eastern equivalent of a meatball which is usually made from lamb. This is a wonderfully spicy version that you can serve in the middle of the table and let everyone dig in.
