    Cookgirl's Note:

    Local recipe-switched from pan fried to baked. Interesting that the recipe does not call for any onions but if you want to add say, 1/3-1/2 cup finely minced yellow onion that would be okay with me! (I didn't add onion.)

      Loved these exotic meatballs! Great and unusual combination of flavors and textures. I especially loved the pine nuts in this. Served with your Za'atar Bread Rolls (Manaiesh Bi Za'atar) and it was a very nice pairing. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Made for the Best of 2011 event, recommended by flower7

      These are excellent! And my apartment smells amazing. I've also never mixed ground meat with fruit but the combo was super! I used lamb rather than beef and Greek yogurt. Served with rice (Greek Lemon Pilaf) and a bit more Greek yogurt. Thanks so much for the recipe CG!
