"I had 1.25 # ground sirloin. I find it is much less greasy than lamb and comparable flavor. I just finished making a little sample burger and it is delicious. I did add fresh chopped basil, parsley..." See more, and 1 tsp. dried italian seasoning. I also crushed 1 clove of garlic, as I love the flavor of garlic with feta. I used both calamata and green olives. I measured everything and even with the 1.25 # of meat, I thought 2 eggs seemed a bit much. This is a rather loose mixture and wanted to make this into kabobs and serve w/a yogurt sauce. The nice thing is that there are a variety of ways in which these can be prepared besides meatballs. Hamburgers on the grill, kabob, etc. I would love to make these on the grill as kabobs this summer; will either cut it down to 1 egg or keep it at 2 and throw in a few tbsp. of dried bread crumb. Give this recipe a try for something new and flavorful! Can substitute any other ground meat. Would be great with ground turkey since that has a tendency to be dry and flavorless by itself."
"everyone that eats these loves them. I have used lamb, beef, turkey, and combinations of the above as I have them on hand. All were good. I also used the same recipe to make hamburgers that were to..." See more die for, a little lemon-garlic-mayo sauce on top with some sliced onion and lettuce and it's really good. I also second the use of kalamata olives instead of green. Great recipe all around. "
