Lebanese-Style Spiced Meatballs

Lebanese-Style Spiced Meatballs created by loof751

Local recipe-switched from pan fried to baked. Interesting that the recipe does not call for any onions but if you want to add say, 1/3-1/2 cup finely minced yellow onion that would be okay with me! (I didn't add onion.)

ingredients

directions

  • Combine meatballs mixture in a large mixing bowl and stir *just* until combined.
  • Cover and refrigerate until mixture is firm. (I do this first thing in the morning.).
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Form into 1 1/2" balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake about 20 minutes or until browned and no longer pink in the center.
  • If desired, serve with plain yogurt that has been drained or tahini.
  • Delicious served over quinoa accompanied by a fresh salad with seasonal ingredients or steamed veggies in the cooler months.
  • Yield: 18-22 meatballs.

    Loved these exotic meatballs! Great and unusual combination of flavors and textures. I especially loved the pine nuts in this. Served with your recipe #142472 and it was a very nice pairing. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Made for the Best of 2011 event, recommended by flower7

    These are excellent! And my apartment smells amazing. I've also never mixed ground meat with fruit but the combo was super! I used lamb rather than beef and Greek yogurt. Served with rice (recipe #36346) and a bit more Greek yogurt. Thanks so much for the recipe CG!
