Life Tastes Good

This is super tasty. I would have given it 5 stars but the directions are flawed and leave out the bread crumbs, eggs (although I used 1 whole egg and it was fine), and water that is listed in the ingredients list (I did not use the water though - my meat mixture did not need it) Additionally, it doesn't say to mince the garlic. I used an 80/20 meat as it is so much more flavorful than the lean stuff. I also used fresh flat leaf Italian parsley and 1 tbsp minced fresh garlic. I used seasoned bread crumbs and just 1/2 teaspoon cumin as it can be overpowering. I made the Greek Tzatziki sauce recipe from this site. The meatballs were full of flavor and held their own with the Tzatziki Sauce - they went very well together. I really think it is important to use fresh parsley and 1 tablespoon of garlic for best results along with a more flavorful meat like the 80/20. I cooked the meatballs at 425 for 15 minutes and they were juicy and delish! I broiled the flat bread until lightly toasted and topped with 4 meatballs, tzatziki sauce, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, and fresh parsley. We loved this meal! I served it with baked sweet potato fries which complemented the sandwich nicely! Great flavors! Thanks for a delicious recipe. I did notify allrecipes to the errors, so I'm sure they will correct the directions soon and I will change this to 5 stars then!


After reading the other reviews, I decided to add extra seasonings to the meatballs. I added some fresh oregano, fresh chopped mint, and onion to the seasonings already called for in the recipe. In addition to that, I used fresh breadcrumbs and milk and one whole egg. Served on warmed flatbread with store bought tzatziki and a combination of chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, parsely, fresh mint seasoned with salt and some lemon juice. With my changes, my family enjoyed this dinner very much.

I love summer when my herb garden is raging. I added fresh mint, thyme and a little basil to this recipes beefball mixture. Brushed fresh garlic butter on the naan before I toasted it the last few minutes under the broiler as the meatballs finished off. Loaded on the fresh tzatziki sauce, recipe from AR and all these fresh toppings! We enjoyed every Greek Island Summer bite. Great Lunch or light dinner.
