Here's How To Make Lamb Meatballs With Lemon and Feta:

Start by prepping your ingredients. If you can, let the meat and egg sit out for about 30 minutes before starting. Measure out all of your ingredients and mince your garlic. 
In a large bowl, add the feta cheese to the ground lamb. Add in the water and lemon juice. The water will keep your meatballs from becoming dry when you’re browning them, and the lemon juice is delicious, so don’t forget it!  
Next, add in your almond flour, red pepper flakes and pinch of salt. 
Mix, and then add in your minced garlic,  
In a small bowl, beat your eggs and then add them to the meat mixture. 
Mix again, and then form into balls. While you’re forming your meatballs, you should be heating up your skillet so it’s nice and hot. Before adding the meatballs to the skillet, add in your two tablespoons of olive oil. 
Brown the meatballs on all sides. They don’t need to be cooked all the way through just browned. You might have to brown the meatballs in batches so there is enough room in your skillet. we were able to manage doing this in one batch. 
Now, you’re just going to add your tomato sauce in and let these simmer on the stove for at least 30 minutes. You can let them simmer all day if you want! Just make sure the heat is super low so you don’t end up with dry meatballs. You can drain the meatball pan if you want, but we leave all the fat and liquid in there, it’s so tasty! Plus, it’s perfect if you’re on a keto diet. 
Now, After they have simmered for at least 30 minutes, they are ready to go! Garnish with more crumbled feta and basil if you wish. Serve with a lemon wedge. Enjoy!
