Baked Meat Balls (Firin Kofte)

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, grated
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp sea salt to taste
½ tsp fresh ground pepper
½ tsp crushed red pepper
4 Tbsp olive oil

Mix all the ingredients, but the olive oil. Then, knead for a couple of minutes for an even distribution of the ingredients. Grab egg size or bigger pieces and make circular patties. Place them over an oven tray greased with olive oil. Brush the tops of the meat balls with olive oil.
Bake them in a preheated 400F (200C) for about 25-30 minutes or until they get lightly brown.
ENJOY

Sorry I missed some of your posts, but I took December off and AI will be cooking in a few days to post.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Holiday.

Ilike the fact that these are baked...healthier eating.

What is 'crushed red pepper'? Is that sumac or chilli flakes?
