Sweet Chilli Glazed Lamb Meatballs


  • 300g Free Range Lamb Mince
  • 1 - 2 tbsp finely diced red onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ a free range egg
  • 1 tbsp gluten free breadcrumbs
  • A big pinch of salt
  • Olive oil
  • Cannings Sweet Chilli Sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until evenly combined.
  3. Roll the mix into meatballs - you can make them whatever size you like. We opted for about 1 tbsp of mixture per meatball.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and pop into the oven for 15 - 20 mins.
  5. When they come out, brush your meatballs generously with Cannings Sweet Chilli Sauce - it makes a delicious glaze! We served our meatballs on top of a salad of baby spinach, cucumber, roasted pumpkin, red onion and hummus, topped with a few roasted pine nuts. We think a pita with your favourite Mediterranean salads and a bit of hummus and tzatziki would be amazing too!
