Preparation:

Step 1

Heat oven to 375°. Place wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet and coat rack with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

Step 2

Crumble bread into a large bowl and add milk; soak 1 minute. Add lamb, onion, mint, oregano, lemon zest, garlic, egg, salt and pepper; stir until blended. Shape into about 40 meatballs, each about 1 heaping tablespoon. Thread meatballs onto skewers and transfer to prepared rack, overlapping as necessary. Bake for about 38 to 40 minutes or until internal temperature registers 160°on an instant read thermometer.

Step 3

Meanwhile prepare aioli. Place red peppers, yogurt, mayonnaise, garlic and salt in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Serve meatballs with dip.
