Great balls of fire

This recipe is perfect for a night when you just can’t think of what to make for dinner, and don’t want to spend too long in the kitchen. I saw this recipe over on Poppytalk Handmade months ago, but I can’t find the original post! Sad face. So it’s not possible for linkage, apologies. This is my non-vegetarian version {made with lamb mince} with a kick of spice. Dip those mothers right into a cool dip, and cut the richness with some sticks of fresh veg to make your mama proud. 

Ingredients – meat balls
1 pack of lamb mince {500g}
3 or as many cloves of garlic as you like, diced
6 chopped papadom peppers {any spicy peppers}
Chili flakes {if you like}
1 egg
2 tablespoons of flour
Salt and pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mush with your hands. Roll the mixture into balls about the size of a  mushroom and place in a hot pan. Ignore your temptation to add oil to the pan since lamb mince is fatty and before you know it will be bubbling away. Cook for 5 minutes / until the meat is cooked through. Transfer onto a paper towel to get rid of excess grease, serve along with cool dip, and eat with a fork to achieve maximum dip coverage.

Ingredients – dip
1 small tub sour creme
Juice from 1 lime
Salt and pepper

Mix and serve in a cute bowl.
