Sasha's Kitchen: Lamb Meatballs

I came up with this delicious recipe for ancho chile flavored lamb meatballs the other night which was just perfect.  The little delicious meatballs are perfect as either a main course for two, or as an appetizer at a party.  I like serving them with some pomegranate seeds as a garnish in a martini glass for some extra pizzaz.  The sweet potato adds flavor, moisture and a bit of color to these delicious meatballs.  Remember to make them small - they are cuter that way!

Sasha's Lamb Meatballs
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
3 tsp ancho chile powder
3/4 of a small sweet potato, grated
1 lb ground lamb
3 scallions, minced
1 1/2 tsp grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp finely peeled ginger
1/4 tsp kosher salt
pomegranate seeds (as a garnish)

Combine all of the above ingredients and work them into the meat.  You can either pan cook the meatballs in a bit of oil, and then bake them through for about 15 minutes, or bake them for about 40 minutes at 350.  Serve with a garnish of pomegranate seeds.
