Classic Greek family recipe

If you are a beginner cook, this real simple and scrumptious recipe will take all your friends to your kitchen table. The combination of meatballs with potatoes results in a complete dish, while the herbs give the dish an extra flavour and make it even better.

4 servings
Meatballs dough

500g medium ground beef
500g medium ground pork
1 egg
2 onion, finely grated
3 medium slices of day-old bread
1/2 cup red wine
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dried oregano 
Black pepper

Roast Potatoes

6-7 medium potatoes
1 tbsp mustard
1 tsp oregano
Juice of 1 lemon
2 cups water
1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped


Soak the slices of bread in wine for a minute or two. Strain and grade them by hand.
In a large bowl mix all meatballs ingredients with your hands until combined very well.
Put the bowl in the fridge.
Preheat oven to 200 ° C or 390 Fahrenheit.
Peel the potatoes and cut them into 4 even-sized pieces.
In another bowl add all potatoes ingredients except for water and combine them well to marinate the potatoes. 
Pour the water to a deep roasting tin (one big enough to take the potatoes in a single layer) and add the potatoes.
Cover the roasting tin with baking paper and cook for about 30 minutes. Remove the tin from the oven. Make large finger shape meatballs and line meatballs over potatoes. Cook for thirty minutes more without the paper.

Serve it with Greek Salad and Feta!
