Lamb meatballs Hidden Feta

To make the meatballs, mix the mince, onion, and spice. I added 1 tbspn of spice and a teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Patties, rissoles and meatballs all need extra salt I think. If you mix it with your hand (or gloved hand) for about 5 minutes it will emulsify and should stay together. Or add the egg white and squeeze out the milk and add the bread to the mixture and mix well. Divide into 8 equal parts and I weighed mine because I am obsessive and they were all 65g. Roll into a ball in your palm and squash flat. Put the Feta in the centre and then enclose it completely with the mince. Check no Feta is showing. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat and then cook the meatballs for 5 minutes each side, then I quickly gave the edge a minute or so on each side. Rest for 5 minutes.

To serve, spread some yoghurt, lemon and spring onion OR tzatziki on the flat bread, then the tomato and cucumber dice. I squeezed a little lemon juice and then put on the quartered meatballs, I love the look of the oozy warm Feta and I grated a little extra lemon zest on top. Fold up and then eat. Good hot, warm or cold.



Mmmm, that sounds very tempting. Unfortunately, my sotmach has lurched after lunch and is not yet recovered. Pasta with melted cheese is all it can take at the moment



Glad Peri is better and I like the dress - I am returning to the cookbook resolution where each week I cook 4 recipes from one book - this is working at present.......

Maybe I should try and do a project a month - I made a tunic, but I need to be a little smaller for it to fit perfectly...


Gosh that sounds good! The fetta inside sounds perfect! Adding that to my menu list Cindy!


these were fantastic! had them with a Greek salad tonight. They'll become a standard. Ta Cindy. xo
