Lamb Meatballs – an easy, delicious lamb meatball recipe that can be made in the oven or on the stove top! So good!


  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup fine almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced


  1. Combine ingredients in a medium mixing bowl; mix.
  2. Taking one tablespoon of lamb mixture at a time, create meatballs with your hand or a small dough scoop. Place on a plate. 

Stove Top:

  1. Bring large cast iron skillet to medium-high heat. Add approximately a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan; swirl to coat. 
  2. Sear the meatballs on all sides. 
  3. Turn heat down to medium/medium-low and continue cooking unit internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F (about 10-15 minutes).


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 
  2. Place meatballs on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake on the middle rack for 15-20 minutes or until fully cooked. 
  4. Remove from oven and let cool; serve and enjoy! 


  • Internal temp of lamb: lamb is fully cooked when it reaches 145 degrees F. at it’s thickest part. 
  • Serving suggestions: we love using these to make Gyro Bowls or dipping them in Homemade Tzatziki Sauce!
