Serbian – Inspired Meatballs (Serbia and Montenegro)

From a Cevapcici recipe

1 lb ground lamb
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 tbsp hot Hungarian paprika, or sweet paprika and a little cayenne
2 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste


Combine all the ingredients in a bowl (except the bread crumbs), and mix well by hand. Do not overwork the meat mixture. Add breadcrumbs to desired consistency.
