    pewpew1982's Note:

    This is a recipe from the Jan 2008 Real Simple Magazine. So yummy looking,. Make sure you use a thick greek yogurt, it makes allt he difference. If for some reason you are put off by it or can't find it, sour cream will substitute fine (but sour cream makes me go :/ )

      Excellent sandwich! I used regular dark raisins and Panko breadcrumbs (they were the only kind I could find for some reason). Otherwise followed the recipe, cooking for 9 minutes total. The meatballs were super tender, juicy and flavorful and I liked the hint of sweetness from the raisins. I agree that Greek yogurt is a must here and while I tend to not like mint with lamb, in this case it definitely works with the other flavors. Thanks for sharing!
