Greek Meatballs

I found this great and simple recipe on a foodie blog that is very close to my heart: any time I browse the recipes I feel like I’m on that gorgeous island of Crete (the blog belongs to a Hungarian lady living in Crete with her family). She shares Hungarian and most importantly Greek recipes, I have tried many of them and all of them turned out great! We enjoyed these delicious meatballs with some rice and pickles.

Bite Sized Greek Meatballs


250g ground beef
fresh parsley
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp dense yoghurt
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 small onion
salt, pepper


1. Chop the parsley and onion
2. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl
3. Make small (nut sized) balls
4. Fry the balls on a little olive oil.

I served them with some lemon wedges only to make them look good, however it turned out to be a very good pair with the meatballs – lemon yoghurt freshness : ))
