“One of my fondest childhood memories is of my grandmother’s cooking. She made cooking incredibly fun; we all got to help in the planning, preparation and serving of the meal. I think this is one of the reasons I became a chef. Her philosophy of food and cooking—let the ingredients speak for themselves—was something I have carried into my professional life. She always bought only the freshest seasonal ingredients and prepared them simply. This recipe of hers, a family treasure, reflects that style. Once a year the butcher would get fresh spring lamb, and she would be the first in line to pick out a leg.” —Chef Michael Thoms

Greek-Style Lamb Meatballs Recipe with Spicy Chili Glaze | What’s Cooking

Plated as a first course (like they are served at our Blue Stove restaurants) or all together on little skewers as an hors d’oeuvre, these Chili-Glazed Lamb Meatballs are delicious anytime of year, but work especially well as an Easter appetizer recipe idea—traditional lamb prepared with a twist for the holiday.

Greek-inspired herbs and spices flavor the interior of these baked meatballs, while a spicy pasilla chili sauce lends a smoky earthiness. The pepper glaze’s heat gets cooled down by a pool of Greek yogurt, and it’s all topped with refreshing mint and parsley scattered on a crunchy radish and cucumber salad. Easy to make, this meatball recipe with a Mediterranean flair is an impressive-looking tribute to the beginning of spring.
