Gluten free lamb meatballs are a rich, flavorful, easy dinner.
Indeed, my family loves meatballs. Normally, I use an extra pound of meat. They go fast.
These scrumptious meatballs made with ground lamb are a special treat. Simmer them in my gluten free mushroom gravy and a touch of cinnamon. Yum.

Ingredients You’ll Need
butter to sauté the shallots
- ground lamb
- gluten free bread crumbs
- an egg
- lemon zest
- salt and pepper
- more butter and some extra virgin olive oil to cook your meatballs
- and cinnamon to add to your gravy
To make the lemon zest, you’ll need a microplane. Grate only the outer layer of the skin, rotating the lemon for just the zest and not the white pith which can be bitter.

*Free printable recipe card is available at the end of the post.
First sauté your shallots in a tablespoon of butter until they’re tender. Then in a large bowl, combine the shallots with your ground lamb, bread crumbs, parsley, egg, lemon, and seasonings.
Divide the meat mixture into meatballs and brown in batches in butter and olive oil. Drain on a paper towel.
Drain the butter from the pan and prepare my Gluten Free Mushroom Gravy in the same pan. I like to add cinnamon to the gravy for this dish.
Then return your meatballs to the pan and simmer in your gravy for about 10 minutes until the lamb is barely pink inside.
And that’s it! Gluten free lamb meatballs for the win.
