Meatballs (Κεφτέδες)


Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and bursting with flavour!

It’s hard to know exactly what makes these meatballs so delicious, but we have a few ideas.  These bite sized morsels are made with a mixture of two types of meat, are perfectly spiced, and because they are fried you end up with a meatball which is crispy on the outside but soft and juicy on the inside.  Meatball perfection.

Our parents often serve these meatballs as meze (appetizers) or as part of a buffet dinner. Occasionally they will be an easy lunch or supper,  served with a batch of homemade French fries and some feta cheese.  So good!  The only problem with these meatballs is that they are so small, and so delicious, if you are not careful you can end up eating about 45 of them without even realizing it (not that anyone is counting of course).
