Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet and set aside.
Place all ingredients together in a mixing bowl and use your hands to gently combine the lamb mixture.
Wash the meat off of your hands and leave them slightly damp (this helps to avoid sticking) and form the mixture into golf ball-size balls. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 14-16 minutes or until fully-cooked but still tender.
Makes about 15 meatballs (serves 2—or more as a starter course).
