Recipe by KelBel
READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat the oven to 400°.
  • In a bowl, moisten the bread with 1/3 cup chicken broth. Add the lamb, egg, garlic, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper.
  • Form the mixture into 8 meatballs. Brush with oil and set 2 inches apart on a rimmed nonstick baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper and cook until softened, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Add the vinegar and cook it off, 1 minute. Stir in 2/3 cup chicken broth, then the tomatoes. Bring the sauce just to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • In a medium saucepan, bring the remaining 2 cups chicken broth and the milk to a boil. Whisk in the polenta, lower the heat and cook, whisking, until the polenta is thick but spoonable, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the honey, butter, rosemary and salt and pepper to taste. If it gets too thick, add water or more milk.
  • Spoon the polenta evenly into 4 bowls; top with the 2 meatballs and sauce.
