These meatballs, Keftedes, are baked instead of fried and you can have them for dinner, as finger food or as leftovers plus they freeze well. Serve with tzatziki.
These meatballs are perfect for freezing, either before or after baking. To freeze before baking, form into disks and freeze without coating in flour.
One of my favourite Greek dishes actually calls for leftover meatballs. Simply saute some chopped onion in olive oil till translucent. Add meatballs, tomato puree or passata, a pinch of ground cinnamon, oregano, salt and pepper, and simmer on medium high till most of the water is evaporated and the olive oil comes to the surface. Serve with rice or potatoes.
Something else. ! halved the amount of bread and used wholemeal. I added crushed chilli flakes and used 500g beef without adding pork. It went down really well. - 05 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Made it healthier. With the left-over meatballs make them into a delisous redsauce serve with pasta, for the sauce - in a deep frying pan or wok scortch fine chopped onions (RED), when slightly browned take off the heat. add in 3 large grated tomatoes, 2 bayleaves 1/4 teaspoon brown sugar, salt + pepper, 4 table spoons virgin olive oil, put back on heat until all comes to boiling point ,place in the meat balls, leave to simmer for about 10 min, use any pasta, or rice. Serve on top of pasta along with grated parmasan cheese or a cheese off your choice, my family love this receipe and its orignal receipe title is Sousoukaki. - 10 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
