Oh, this was yummy. I screwed up the recipe like mad - parsley in the stuffing rather than in the meat, and forgot to buy oats so I used bread crumbs & ground walnuts instead. I smothered a slice in skordalia, took a bite and kinda jumped in my seat. I'm not giving it five stars because that would seem a little absurd, but it sure is yummy.
