Greek Meatballs

I originally created this recipe for lamb burgers during those long years when I couldn’t eat beef. Ground meat mix can be used successfully for either lamb burgers or meatballs. Serve either one with Tzatziki Sauce.

1 lb lamb burger
2 oz crumbled feta
1 egg
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 scallion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp dried mint
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp lemon zest
Salt & pepper to taste

Combine ingredients in large bowl. Chill for at least an hour before rolling into balls. Once chilled, roll into small balls. I use about a tablespoon of ground meat. Place on oiled cookie sheet. Bake in 375* oven for fifteen minutes. Turn over and bake another 15 minutes.
