Greek lamb tray bake

By | July 22, 2011

Five of the ingredients in this lamb tray bake; onions, courgettes, cherry tomatoes, mint and potatoes, are all in season right now (I’m growing 3 of them myself) so what better time to make this delicious Greek dish.

lamb tray bake


  • 50g breadcrumbs
  • 250g minced lamb
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 onions, halved
  • 2 large potatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 courgettes, cut into batons
  • 10-15 cherry tomatoes
  • large handful chopped mint
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 50g feta cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 200c
  2. Put the breadcrumbs, mince and egg into a bowl.  Grate in half an onion and sprinkle in half of the mint.  Mix everything together and shape into balls.  Place in a large, shallow roasting dish
  3. Cut the remaining onion into wedges and place between the lamb balls then add in the potatoes, courgettes and cherry tomatoes.  Drizzle with the olive oil and season well.
  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes, turning once, until the lamb is cooked through.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the feta and the remaining mint.

Lovely! Thanks for joining in this first week. I’m thinking of perhaps theming it each week, but let’s see how many are interested first. Thanks

Will give this a go. I know it will be a hit with all my family too. Love the way it all goes in one in the oven. Perfect :-)
