OK. I must give credit to our friend, Candace Turney ( I think her sister had something to do with it. I made them as apps. I made a variation of the tomatoe sauce for dipping and also had a yogurt sauce. They were good weren't they
4 lbs of your ground lamb2 or 3 eggs (depending upon the size)½ c oatmeal6 cloves garlic1 Tbsp ground cumin2 tsp cinnamon1 tsp ground coriander½ tsp hot pepper flakes½ c currents½ c toasted pine nuts10 -12 scallions finely chopped1 c. parsley finely choppedSalt to taste
We mixed the oatmeal with the eggs and let it soak for a bit before mixing in everything else for the meatballs.
The sauce was 2 large cans of tomatoes6 cloves garlic3 lg onions finely chopped1 cup red wine
Sauteed the onions & garlic in some olive oil then added the tomatoes & wine.
The meatballs cooked in the sauce. Towards the end we added 1 c. of spicy green olives________________________________________
