Can you say “Tzatziki”?
I was thinking of Greek flavours today, but I wanted to try something simple. The fresh taste of tzatziki sauce with the salty feta cheese came to mind.
I also thought of making meatballs, not only because they are easy to make, but also quick to stock in the freezer for use at a later date. The best part is, I think it can possibly be paired with any type of sauce that you might be craving for, from gravy to marinara.
For making the meatballs or hamburger patties, I like using panade. It’s a mixture of bread and milk or cream. Panade keeps the moisture in, making the meatball tender. Just a reminder to always check for safe cooking temperatures for meat, find more information here.
So, we’ll start the recipe by making the panade.
Serve the meatballs with the tzatziki and feta cheese over lemon pilaf rice! Serve with roasted tomatoes and lemon and garnish with chopped parsley.
