Polpettes

That recipe was fun.

And tasty.

And messy. But it`s ok, because the result was totally worth it.

We Greeks enjoy mezes a lot. Apparently, Italians are too. So I gave that Italian dish a try and I loved it. I served it with cream cheese and a few drops of lemon on top and it turned out a huge success into our home.

Ingredients:

  • 500 gr. potatoes
  • 120 gr. feta cheese
  • 3 tb. dill chopped
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 1 tb lemon juice
  • 1 egg beaten
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • flour to fry

Method:

  1. Boil the potatoes,  strain & mash them.
  2. Put the mashed potatoes in bowl and add the feta cheese, the dill, the onions, the egg & the lemon juice.
  3. Mix them well & put on the fridge just enough to mold them easier.
  4. Take the mixture out of the fridge, mold it into small balls and flour it.
  5. Heat the oil into a pan (medium level – you don`t want to burn the outside & leave the inside raw).
  6. Fry the polpettes, both sides until they get a golden color.
  7. When ready, let them dry for a few minutes into absorbent paper & serve while they are still hot.

Have a lovely day!!

The original recipe is from here.

* I should probably have kept a record on the number of pieces that the mixture provides, but I tend to taste the food while I cook it, especially when the smell of it is fantastic. Next time… 🙂
