How to Make It

  1. 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.
