Lunchtime Favourite RECIPE After having spent many years in Greece, this is one of Jenny Eaton’s Favourite easy cook recipes…. Keftedes - Greek meatballs
Alternatively, you can cook them by frying them in a little olive for approximately 10 12 minutes, turning several times whilst cooking. Serve with wedges of lemon to squeeze over, A tomato, lettuce and onion salad sprinkled with chopped mint and coriander or whatever combination of herbs you want. The meatballs are also very good served with a simple rich tomato sauce, and rice or finely cut home-made chips, or pasta is another option……..ENJOY!
