Aren't we all looking for a little versatility?  I know I am always looking for it in any form I can get...

Here is a  great meatball recipe and a few different  ways you can serve them...

*simmer in tomato sauce and serve over rice or noodles
*serve in a pita pocket with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and  Tzaziki Sauce
* thread 3-4 on a skewer and serve with tzaziki as a great appetizer

Greek Meatballs
4 slices bread (preferable white)
1/2 cup milk
1lb ground beef
1 egg
1/2 tsp each mint, oregano, thyme, basil ( or 2 tsp greek seasoning)
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbed
S&P to taste

Soak bread in milk.  Add remaining ingredients and combine well by hand.  Form into meatballs and bake on a cookie sheet for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.

TIP:  double or triple this batch and freeze the extra's--what a quick easy dinner on another night!
