Greek Meatballs (Keftethes)
Thanks to Joanne for this
4 slices bread, white or wheat or whole grain - or Bread crumbs - they’re easier.If you use bread, trim the crusts.
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion chopped fine.
1 tbs. crushed mint
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbs butter. 2 tbs olive oil.
Place in mixing bowl and cover with small amounts of water. For bread crumbs youcan omit this step.
Add meat, egg, onion, mint, salt and pepper.
Shape into two inch patties.
Coat the patties well with the flour.
Fry the patties in the mixture of oil and butter.f. Brown on each side then drain.
You can make these ahead of time and freeze them thenwhen you are ready to serve
efrost and reheat them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
These are absolutely fantastic with potato salad or coleslaw. They’re also great cold and on picnics. You can also use these with a tomato sauce and serve meatballs and spaghetti. A little twist on the traditional. Enjoy!
