Last week I had the craving for meatballs… and Greek food… hence Greek Meatballs!
I combined some of my favorite spices from my Greek Moussaka recipe with delicious feta cheese and ground beef, then paired the meatballs with a flavorful Tzatziki Sauce and served them to friends at an NBA playoff watch party I hosted!
They were a hit and will definitely be served at my next party!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1/2 red onion (chopped)
- 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 small tomato (chopped)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp allspice
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- ¼ tsp ground cloves
- ¼ cup parmesan cheese
- ¼ cup feta cheese
- ¼ cup breadcrumbs
- 1 egg
Begin by combining the ground beef, onion, garlic and tomato in a large bowl.
Next, add the cinnamon, allspice, cayenne pepper and ground cloves.
Finally add the feta cheese, parmesan, breadcrumbs and egg, then combine well.
Form the mixture into meatballs.
Grill over medium heat for 20 minutes, flipping half way through.
If you do not have a grill available (or this sweet meatball griller), you can also bake the meatballs in the oven at 400° for 20 minutes.
While the meatballs are grilling prepare the sauce by combining:
- 1 cup greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lemon (juiced)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp fresh dill
Remove the meatballs from the grill or oven and serve with the sauce.
