Actually these meatballs are technically a Cypriot recipe, but from wherever it hails, they are delicous. What I love about these meatballs, besides the taste, is that they contain no breadcrumbs. These cleverly use potato and a little baking powder. But please don’t say I didn’t warn you, they are addictive !
