Here we have a delicious combination of lamb, goat cheese, mint and cumin. Greek inspired lamb meatballs are so different and tasty. Hands down these are my favourite gluten-free meatballs. This recipe is easy to throw together and if you are not a lover of lamb you can use chicken, beef, pork or turkey. I find that lamb gives these meatballs a lot more flavour and they are a nice change to Italian beef meatballs. Greek meatballs are traditionally served with pita bread, but I found that they make a great appetizer with a simple yogurt dip. If you are following a low-cal diet, toss them in a salad for added protein and drizzle with the yogurt dip.
