Torn! What's my mood - hamburgers, a meatloaf or meatballs? I had some ground lamb and I thought I'd do something different; maybe go a little Greek in flavor, rather than the traditional Italian Meatballs. Pulled up a random recipe (always 5-star) for Greek Meatballs & Tzatziki, but of course, added my spin. Then, I think I just got a little carried away! Started out Greek, but ended up, well, let me be frank and say, It was something else! Yes, they do appear all that! With the spices - Cumin, Coriander, Paprika, Oregano, Garlic, Onion, Red Peppers, threw in some Caper Berries and even Sun-Dried Tomatoes - so, the flavor was great!
A Work In Progress
BUT, well, you know like when you're watching a cooking show and at the end presentation, the taste-test response is always that, It's good? Well, this ain't that show! Oh, it looks all that, just can't believe I forgot to add Salt! I even made the Tzatziki sauce (mainly Greek Yogurt and Fresh Dill), which is bland, less the Feta Cheese; so of course, I did a little more with it, adding Fresh Lemon and Garlic, too. Overall, some good stuff! Oh, well, a work in progress! Worth the try!
So, this was off-the-cuff play with ground lamb. Next time, my best recipe!
