These meatballs look nothing like the factory made meatballs you can buy in your local shop, but they taste a million times better.
Here’s what you will need for the base recipe:
- 500 grams (1 lb) of ground meat or beef
- Half feta cheese (75 grams, 2-1/2 ounces)
- 1 onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- mixed pepper, salt, paprika or your choice of herbs/spices
Mash the onion and cloves of garlic. Mix ground meat with salt.
Add mashed onions/garlic, crumbled feta cheese and your choice of herbs/spices.
Mix it all together. If you don’t have a kitchen machine, use your bare hands. It will get a bit messy, but your hands will do the job, and there will be less dishes too
Make small meatballs with two teaspoons or form them with your hands.
Now fry your meatballs until they are no longer pink inside, or brown them before adding a little bit of water and let them cook under a lid.
The feta and garlic makes a really delicious taste.
The juice that is left in your pan after frying makes a delicious sauce, just add a bit of heavy cream or creme fraiche.
