Keftedes – Greek meatballs

Greece on your plate.

I present juicy, spicy Greek meatballs that taste fantastic. Meatballs are dipped in flour and fried.

Keftedes are tastiest when they are just fried. The meatballs get a crispy surface and become juicy inside. They really taste delicious.


4 servings

  • 500 g of minced meat of any kind
  • 100ml of breadcrumbs
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 egg
  • a handful of finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of dried mint (or 1 tablespoon of fresh, finely chopped mint)
  • salt and pepper
  • flour (for breading)
  • frying oil

Finely chop the onion, squeeze or grate the garlic cloves. 

In a bowl, combine the minced meat, onion, garlic, finely chopped parsley, mint, oregano, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Mix it well. 

Wet your hands and prepare round meatballs. Arrange on a plate.

Then roll the meatballs in flour, shake off any excess flour. 

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Fry the meatballs for about 3 minutes on each side, time may vary depending on how large the meatballs are. Place the fried meatballs on a paper towel to get rid of excess fat.

Serve with your favorite toppings. For example, you can use kabak salad / sauce , salad and baked potatoes.

Enjoy your meal!
