Cocktail Meatballs
Keftedes, or keftedakia, are Greek meatballs. Small keftedakia are used as appetizers for parties and festivities of every sort. Since they are equally good at room temperature, they are a fine picnic dish. Large keftedes, with pilaf, vegetable, and salad, make a tasty family dinner.

What You Need:
  • 1 pound ground round
  • ½ cup grated onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried mint
  • 1 or 2 slices white bread
  • ½ cup dry white wine or water
  • 1 egg
  • Flour for rolling
  • Vegetable oil for frying

  • How To Cook:
    1. Mix meat, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, and mint. Remove crusts from bread slices and moisten in wine or water.

    2. Add bread and egg to meat. Knead mixture. Shape into 1-inch balls, dust with flour, and saute in hot vegetable oil.

    3. When meatballs are cooked and browned on all sides, immediately in covered casserole and keep warm until ready to serve.

    To Make: 1½ to 2 dozen
