Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 30 meatballs


  • 1 kg Lamb Mince
  • 2 White Onions, grated
  • 50 g Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 Bread Slices, grated
  • 1 tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground Black Peppercorn Pepper


  1. Preheat Fan Oven to 180 degrees

  2. Line two baking trays with foil, turning up the sides 

  3. In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients and using your hand mix everything until everything is combined well

  4. On to the lined baking trays, make up the meatballs and line them up so there is room between them for even cooking 

  5. Place in the oven and bake for around 30 minutes

  6. Once cooked, using tongs, remove each meatball and place into a bowl or serving dish (Lamb when cooked releases its fat juices so don't let it sit in it for too long once removing from the oven)

  7. Serve with warm pitta bread, a side of rice, a Mediterranean salad and some Turkish yoghurt.
