Lamb Meatballs with Lemon Dijon Sauce

Holy cow!!! Errr, lamb? Awesome recipe! You really can’t go wrong pairing these flavors together! It looks just like Swedish meatballs, but don’t expect that heavy meal here. This dish pulls in such incredible flavors from such simple ingredients! I know for a fact that the hubby will be requesting these again!
