It's A Wonder We Don't Cook Like This All Year!!
It's a wonder because there's only 5 ingredients and you just throw everything into one dish. Yet somehow it still feels comforting and festive!
The beauty of this dish is that it can be a hearty side or a full-blown meal or even a vegetarian main course option (simply remove the meatballs).
Christmas One Dish Wonder
Roasted Lamb Meatballs with Veg (and it’s only 5 ingredients) – The ultimate Christmas Solution.
12 lamb meatballs
1 bag baby potatoes
2 fennel bulbs, roughly chopped

Preheat the oven to 200’c. Half the baby potatoes and place in an oven-proof roasting dish with the carrots, fennel and meatballs. Drizzle generously with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in the oven and roast for 35-40 minutes until the potatoes are soft. (A note when cutting the veg – make sure they are roughly the same size pieces so everything cooks evenly.
Serving sauce (optional)
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ lemon squeezed
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
salt and pepper
Mix all the ingredients and drizzle over the dish.
