Perfectly sized for a finger food, but also adaptable into a classic meat-based second course, authentic Italian lamb meatballs are a truly wonderful and simple recipe for prepare for a quick dinner.
Even better if you have leftovers to enjoy the following day for a ready-made lunch! A light blend of herbs adds a fabulous aromatic accent to these luscious meatballs, and the recipe does achieve that much-desired effect of being rich in flavor while not overly burdensome in terms of ingredients or calories.
Be sure to give these genuine Italian meatballs a try - even though you might be accustomed to making meatballs with either beef or chicken, making them with lamb meat, as many an Italian household does, is a lovely variation on a classic Itlalian dish.
If you've already made beef meatballs or any other variety of these finger foods, then lamb meatballs are the next recipe to check out.

In a bowl put the minced meat, and all the other prepared ingredients: the grated pecorino cheese, the olives and sun-dried tomatoes chopped with a knife, the egg yolks, the stale bread softened in a little water and then crumbled, the finely chopped aromatic herbs (I recommend trying fresh marjoram and oregano!) and finally salt and pepper to taste.
Mix well, taking care to incorporate all the ingredients.
With moistened hands, form meat balls not too large, ping pong ball type, and flatten slightly.
Set aside until ready to cook.
Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet (...) until fairly hot, but not smoking.
Place the meatballs in the skillet and cook until lightly browned and a crispy outer coat forms, turning once each side has finished cooking. (...about 5 minutes per side.
Remove from pan, place them on a paper towel-lined plate and let the paper absorb any excess oil from the meatballs.
