{This recipe can also be made with Chicken or Turkey instead of Lamb}


Ground Lamb

1 lb


1 Large [finely chopped]

Garlic Cloves

2 [finely chopped]

Olive Oil

3 Tablespoons

Feta Cheese

½ Cup / 100 grams [flattened & crumbled]


1 Medium [only use the egg white]


1/3 Cup

Fresh Mint

3 Tablespoons [finely chopped]

Lemon x 1

1 teaspoon lemon zest

All Purpose Seasoning

1 teaspoon

Italian or Mixed Herbs

2 teaspoon


¾ teaspoon

Black Pepper

¾ teaspoon

Vegetable Oil Spray




  1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and garlic then reduce the heat only slightly and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring as you go.
  3. In a mixing bowl put the feta, egg white, breadcrumbs, mint, lemon zest, all-purpose seasoning, herbs, salt & pepper.
  4. Add in the gently cooked onion and garlic and mix well.
  5. From the refrigerator add the ground / minced lamb to the bowl and mix well with all of the ingredients.
  6. Fill your mixture into the main container of the Meatball Xpress. When doing so it is best to fill each chamber of the container one by one, feeding in your food mix with one hand and working it in with the fingers of the other hand up to the MAX line markings on the container.
  7. Once it is filled you can compress your meatballs, clean away any excess and tap out the meatballs into the lid as shown in our TOP TIPS / Demonstration video on our website


OVEN: Heat the oven [fan assisted] to 450°F 230°C. Line a baking / roasting tray with a sheet of aluminium foil. Spray the foil with vegetable oil and arrange your meatballs in the tray.  Cook for 9-10 minutes and serve with a dip of your choice. A Minted Yogurt Style Dip works really well with this recipe.
