Soutzoukakia- Mini Greek Meatballs

This is my husband's favorite dish! Most of the recipes call for pan frying before baking but I find that the meatballs soak up the tomato sauce better and are juicer this method. Serve as an appetizer or as a main course with pasta. Delicious!!!

    I loved this recipe because I didn't have to fry the meatballs first! The only changes we made were not to dredge the meatballs in flour and we used a sweet red wine instead of the dry merlot. It was so delicious. The meatballs are so tender and the sauce was so flavorful! No leftovers!!!
