Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Finely grate ½ white onion.

  • I use a medium sized cookie scoop to help shape my meatballs evenly. However, roll out about 32 meatballs.
  • Grease a baking sheet. Place meatballs on baking sheet giving them enough space not to touch and evenly cook.
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until completely browned.

Notes

Note 1: Meatballs should be a little smaller than a golf ball. You should be able to make about 32 lamb meatballs.
 
Note 2: To freeze: Lay meatballs  out on a baking sheet and make sure they don’t touch. Then freeze them about 30 minutes; enough to were they are very hard. Next throw them in a big freezer bag. They won’t stick!
