Lamb Meatball Cups

On 7th December 2014, This was Dinner

I was inspired to make these after watching an episode of You Gotta Eat Here.


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºc (fan)
  • Finely chop an onion
  • Finely slice a red onion
  • Melt some butter
  • Get filo pastry, minced lamb, ground cumin, ground coriander, ground allspice, cayenne, oil, rocket, yoghurt & lemon ready


Mix together the lamb and onion with all of the spices, form into small balls and chill for a while.

Finely slice the red onion, squeeze over some lemon juice and season with salt.

Cut up some filo into squares, brush the squares with butter.

Turn a muffin tin upside and drape the squares over the bottom of every other muffin section. Then drape another until there are three per ‘cup’. Bake in the oven until golden then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Heat some oil in a pan and cook the meatballs, turning occasionally. Once cooked, pop some rocket in the bottom of the filo cups and add a couple of meatballs, top with the sliced red onion and a dollop of yoghurt.


Look at my festive candle holders- Ho Ho & Ho!

Mr S wasn’t down with my cups so he went with meatball sarnies.
