DIRECTIONS

  • To make the meatballs: Take one large potato and wash it.
  • Do not yet peel it.
  • Put the potato into a saucepan of water, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
  • Remove the potato from the hot water and let cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl put the meat.
  • Add the onion, salt, garlic, oregano, mint, black pepper and cinnamon.
  • Next, peel the potato and grate it.
  • Add the grated potato to the meat and spices and mix everything together.
  • Chill in the fridge for about one hour until the meat has gotten cold.
  • Make small meatballs and fry in a nonstick frying pan, on medium heat, in a little olive oil, until well browned.
  • Cook in batches, remove the meatballs and drain on paper towels. Note: I have also used frozen (and thawed) shredded hash browns in here rather than cooking a whole potato. This will speed up the recipe a little bit.
  • Greek Yogurt Salad: Mix together the yogurt and water and stir until blended.
  • If you want the yogurt thick, add less water, if you want it more thin, add more water. I often like to add several Tablespoons of olive oil here, but that is optional.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Chill in the fridge until serving time.
