Keftethedes - Greek Meatballs

So, I am Greek and love cooking yummy Greek dishes. These meatballs are wonderful and can be made with turkey, pork or beef. They have cinnamon in them which make a delightful addition to the overall flavor of the meatballs.


2 1/2 lbs Ground Beef (pork or turkey)
1 medium onion fine chopped
1 large potato grated
2 eggs
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


1) Preheat oven to 350
2) Mix all ingredients in bowl
3) Form into meatballs a little bit over a golf ball in size
4) Roll parchment paper onto a baking sheet
5) Place meatballs on baking sheet
6) Bake for 15 to 20 minutes on 350 degrees
7) Turn oven to broil (450) and broil meatballs for 5 minutes
