Greek Style Meatballs

I recently served these for a spring inspired dinner party. The lemon zest is key, and is what makes these meatballs perfect for early spring where you want to make a comfort food feel flora, and optimistic that warmer times are coming.

Serve these with a dollop of homemade tzatziki sauce on top, and your guests will devour these in no time!

Directions should always be short and to the point.

  1. Preheat oven or air fryer to 350 degrees

  2. Add an equal ratio of breadcrumbs and milk into a large bowl to make a panade. Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes.

  3. Add in ground beef, eggs, all spices, lemon zest (freshly zested/ grated), the rest of the lemon juice from the recently zested lemon, and crumbled feta (optional) and mix well with hands

  4. Roll into 1 inch diameter balls, careful not to roll them too tightly

  5. Line out onto pan lined with parchment paper (if using oven) or place on air fryer basket

  6. Cook for 20-25 min in oven, or 8- 12 min in air fryer

  7. Squeeze more lemon on top, and serve with tzatziki sauce
