Herbed Lamb Meatballs

Yield 30 meatballs (serving size: 5 meatballs)
Baking the lamb meatballs on a broiler rack or pan prevents them from being cooked in fat. For the easiest cleanup, line the rack or pan thoroughly with aluminum foil, and simply discard the foil when you're done.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground lamb
  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Cooking spray
