"I love making lamb meatballs; the combination of mint and lamb make for a very exciting flavor profile. These meatballs are combined with a hearty prepared tomato sauce and then served over tandoori naan with melted cheese to create a delicious dish."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mix bread crumbs, garlic powder, paprika, 1/4 teaspoon mint, dried basil, and parsley together in a large bowl. Add ground lamb, egg, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper; mix until evenly distributed. Form ground lamb into 1-inch balls and arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Flip meatballs and continue cooking until cooked through, about 10 minutes more. Remove meatballs from oven and reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Pour tomato sauce into a saucepan over low heat; add capers, fresh basil, 1/4 teaspoon mint, salt, and pepper. Cook sauce, stirring occasionally, until heated through and flavors have blended, 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Place naan bread on a baking sheet. Spoon tomato sauce and meatballs on the naan; cover with Muenster cheese slices.
  6. Bake in the oven until cheese is melted, 5 to 10 minutes.



I made the meatballs only and they are fantastic!!! The only change I made was using fresh mint instead of dried.
