Yummy Greek Meatballs
1 pound ground lamb
1/2 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons minced chives
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 egg, room temp
1 tablespoon dried mint (I used fresh)
1 tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 tespoons cumin
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
8-10 dried apricots, chopped
8 (or a many as you want) kalamata olives, chopped
Mix all the above ingredients and form into meatballs (I made about 1-2in meatballs). Place on a cooling rack which is on a baking sheet so that they brown all the way around. Bake at 450 about 15 mins, depending on size.
Makes approximately 15 meatballs. Serves 3-4.
