Minted Meatballs Recipe

Publisher Photo
This is my version of an old Greek recipe. The addition of dried mint flakes sets these meatballs apart from any others I've ever tried. - Joyce Acheson, Soldier Pond, Maine

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Dip bread in water; squeeze out excess moisture. Crumble bread into a large bowl. Add the egg, onion, parsley, garlic, mint, salt and pepper; mix well. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls. Roll in flour. In a large skillet, cook meatballs in oil over medium heat for 15 minutes or until no longer pink. Yield: 40 meatballs.
If you find you don't often use certain dried herbs (such as dried mint flakes), it's best to refrigerate them after opening. The more airtight the container, the longer they will keep their flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 9, 2012

"I used fresh mint, too, and I agree that the taste is so unique but has just enough delicateness to it that you don't want to drown it in a sauce. Pasta or rice alongside it with it's own flavoring or sauce and a vegetable is the perfect way to serve them."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 17, 2011

"I loved this recipe! It was easy to prepare and cooks quickly. I made spaghetti with it, but I put the meatballs on the side so as not to override the mint taste with the sauce. Delicious!!

Also, I used fresh mint leaves, which probably increased the flavor = )"
