When it comes to barbecues or dinner parties, we always want to have a mix of familiar and exotic tastes around the table. These lamb meatballs are full of familiar tastes, but the ranch dressing adds something unexpected. If you have the fresh minced lamb, chances are you have everything you need to make them in your refrigerator or pantry. They take less than 30 minutes to whip up for guests!
What’s my secret? The Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® seasoning packet that is sure to make these meatballs palate-pleasing for the whole brood!
