This recipe has been posted here for play in ZWT9 - Greece. This recipe is from Realgreekrecipes.blogspot.ca. Classic Greek meatballs are called Keftedes and Keftedakia are a smaller version of them . They can be eaten as a snack, as a meze with ouzo and or beer or just as part of a buffet meal. Children also love these quick and easy to make treats.

Aside from using some dried mint (no fresh available here) I just followed the recipe. I made half of it as DH wasn't interested in trying any and I loved them, his loss. Excellent taste and quite easy to make and the flour coating was a nice touch. I'm looking forward to having the leftovers soon. :D
