I grew up with meatballs smothered in a tomato sauce with chopped celery, carrots, and onions served over rice. Later, it was meatballs with spaghetti. I like meatballs, my kids like meatballs, but their meatball memories will have a Greek flair.
By the time I am done frying them all up, I serve them at room temperature with warmed pita bread,* tzatziki,* grape tomatoes and fresh mint leaves. They also make great leftovers or…school lunches.
