Greek meatballs in tomato sauce

I make this all the time and only now I've put it on my blog. Shame!

Greek meatballs

The best part of this dish, besides the taste of course, is how easy it is to make loads. It's awesome for a dinnerparty or for mealprep. it's very versatile as well, you can serve it with a salad or go full Greek with here . It's also great with cauliflower puree or like here with a feta puree.

Another great part is that people are amazed by the flavour and it's so easy to make.

Let's go to the recipe for these Greek meatballs a.k.a keftedes.

I usually use a mix of pork and beef but you could totally use just beef.

    Heerlijk gerecht, ik persoonlijk vind dat er nog meer kruiden in zouden mogen dus dat passen we de volgende keer aan.
    Lekker met pita of rijst met tzatziki

      Goed om te horen! Ik zal nog eens kritisch naar de kruiden kijken en goed afmeten de volgende keer dat ik het maak. We houden niet van flauwe gerechten hier!
