Ingredients

1 pound ground lamb
1/4 cup golden raisins, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Kosher salt and pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 large egg, beaten
1 bunch scallions (white and light green parts), sliced
4 pieces flat bread
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh mint

Preparation

Place an oven rack in the second-highest position and heat broiler.

Combine the lamb, raisins, cinnamon, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, the bread crumbs, egg, and three-quarters of the scallions in a large bowl.

Shape the mixture into golf ball–size meatballs and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Broil, turning once, until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes total.

Divide the flat bread among individual plates and top with the meatballs, yogurt, mint, and the remaining scallions.
