      An excellent recipe..........I followed it exactly as written, except I made mini meatballs, roasted them on a parchment covered cookie sheet for about 20 min. at 350 degrees. My husband and I had gyros and I froze the rest of the meatballs for a later meal. Thank you for sharing.

      This is a very delicious recipe - it came out scrumptious and very moist. All of my family said they wanted to come home for lunch tomorrow. Thumbs up!

      Oh my gosh this is yummy! I used gluten-free bread and served it on rice rather than pitas. I'm looking forward to left-overs for dinner tomorrow night.
