Ingredients

12 oz ground lamb12 oz 93%-lean ground turkey1 cup fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs (see tip)1 large egg white1 cup minced onion, divided6 cloves garlic, minced, divided4 Tbsp chopped fresh mint, divided1 tsp ground coriander½ tsp ground cumin½ tsp kosher salt, divided1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil½ cup red wine¼ cup cayenne pepper1 can 28-ounce crushed tomatoes

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Combine lamb, turkey, breadcrumbs, egg white, 1/2 cup onion, half the garlic, 2 tablespoons mint, coriander, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Gently mix to combine. Shape into 48 little meatballs, about 1 tablespoon each. Place on the prepared baking sheet.

3. Bake the meatballs for 10 minutes. Set aside.

4. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the remaining 1/2 cup onion and cook, stirring, until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining garlic, wine, cayenne and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Simmer over medium-low heat until the wine has reduced significantly, 3 to 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, return to a simmer, reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes.

5. Add the meatballs to the sauce and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Garnish with the remaining 2 tablespoons mint.

 

Tip: To make fresh breadcrumbs, trim crusts from firm sandwich bread. Tear the bread into pieces and process in a food processor into coarse crumbs. One slice of bread makes about 1/3 cup crumbs.

To Make Ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Just before serving, reheat over medium-low.
