Prep: 30 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes

Ready in: 45 minutes


  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1.5 teaspoons fresh oregano, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic cloves, minced
  • 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium egg
  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1.5 teaspoons Dad’s Own
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder


  • Heat a small saucepan over medium heat, add oil, and saute garlic for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • In a large bowl, thoroughly mix together the remaining ingredients. Using about a tablespoon each, make small balls of the mixture and place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Roll each meatball into the garlic oil to coat and saute for 2-3 minutes without touching. Flip each meatball and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. This can be done in batches.

Serving: Best served with tzatziki sauce or green goddess sauce as a side or appetizer. These can also be added to noodles with a cream sauce to make an excellent pasta dish. Double the red pepper flakes for extra spice.
