Baked kibbeh -  Lebanese Baked Minced La

I watched a friend's mum, (who had been raised in Lebanon and was an incredible cook,) to learn this fantastic recipe. Easy Healthy Lamb Kibbeh is much healthier and easier than many of the fried versions available. It's super easy to make and tastes delicious. Easy Healthy Lamb Kibbeh was my eldest son's favourite meal growing up. I always made huge quantities as both of my boys loved it. I hope you enjoy my version of Easy Healthy Lamb Kibbeh as much as they did.

9. Slice along score lines into pieces
