Prepare the meatballs

For the meatballs, peel and finely dice the onions. Wash the rosemary, shake it dry, finely chop it and add it to a bowl with the onion. Crumble the feta cheese into the same bowl, then add the minced lamb and the other meatball ingredients. Mix well then shape the mixture into even-sized balls.

Heat up the rapeseed oil in a large frying pan and fry the meatballs in it for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Turn them over frequently, covering them with the hot cooking fat.
