For the Meatballs you'll need: 1 pound ground lamb meat, 1/3 cup bread crumbs, 1 egg, 1 Tbsp olive oil, 2 cloves garlic (finely minced), 1 tsp fresh spearmint leaves (finely chopped), 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp coriander, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper For the Sauce you'll need: 3/4 cup fresh spearmint leaves, 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/8 cup Balsamic Vinegar, 1 tsp greek seasoning, 2 tsp fresh lemon juice, 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce, 2 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup feta cheese, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper How to prepare: Mix meat ingredients in a bowl. Roll into meatballs (about 1.5"x1.5"). Place on baking sheet (2" apart) in 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Mix all sauce ingredients in food processor until blended together well. Serve sauce on side of meatballs or pour over top. I recommend serving atop couscous, w/ homemade hummus, pita bread, Greak salad and fresh thaziki sauce.
