I really love meatballs. They can be served with more than just your traditional pasta, are a great way to use ground meat and are super easy! My favorite part – you can make them your own in all ways possible. Without further hold up…. my Greek-ish meatball recipe!


  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 2 Tbsp. parsley (dried or fresh-chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp. oregano (dried of fresh-chopped)
  • 1 shallot, finely minced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp. ground mustard
  • Salt, pepper, granulated garlic to taste

Preheat oven to 375* F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all ingredients together in large mixing bowl. Working with your hands is the best way to thoroughly mix meat + ingredients. Using hands, roll into equal size meatballs. I make mine bigger, to yield around 15 meatballs from 3 lbs. meat. Place meatballs on parchment lined baking sheet. Once oven is heated and all meatballs are rolled, bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until inside is done.

Optional** Top with crumbled feta cheese before serving or mix in 1/3 cup feta cheese into meat mixture. Serve with tzatziki sauce on the side.

Serve with a side of orzo and tossed salad.
