Greek Meatballs with a Feta Cheese Center
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 lb./500g ground beef
  • ½ cup/50g bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon rosemary, dried
  • ½ teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ cup feta cheese, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  1. Mix together the beef, bread crumbs, egg, and spices until well-combined.
  2. Form into about 20 small meatballs and fill each one with a cube of feta cheese, making sure the cheese isn't showing and completely surrouned by the meat.
  3. Melt the butter in a large pan and fry the meatballs on all sides.
If you are serving these with a tomato sauce like I usually do, then just add them to the sauce and continue to simmer until cooked through. If serving them without a sauce, leave them to fry in the pan a bit longer until cooked through.
