Spiced Lamb Meatballs

Here is an old recipe of mine that I've revamped to low carb. They are good for appetizers or a main dish. You can leave off the tomato topping if you'd like. I'm serving these tonight with steamed artichokes & garlic mayo, and a green salad.

Spiced Lamb Meatballs

Meatballs:
1/2 oz. pork rinds
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 medium onion
1/4 cup cilantro leaves or parsley
1 large egg
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 teaspoon Aleppo pepper (or 1/4 tsp. cayenne)
1/8 tsp. ground allspice
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 pound ground lamb
1/2 pound ground pork

Topping:
1/2 cup lower-sugar ketchup
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
Dash Worcestershire sauce
Dash Tabasco sauce

Preheat oven to 425║F.
Place pork rinds in food processor bowl and process until ground. Add garlic, onion and cilantro and pulse until minced. Add remaining meatball ingredients and pulse until well mixed. Form mixture into 1-inch balls (a cookie scoop works well; use wet hands to form meatballs) and place on a foil lined baking sheet.
For topping: mix ingredients together in a small bowl. Top each meatball with a dab of the topping (about 1/2 tsp. each).
Bake meatballs for 20-25 minutes, until browned.

Your recipes are always so delicious.

Thanks for this one, it will give me a reason to find some ground lamb.
We have a Persian market within 15 minutes of my home and they have
good lamb.
