I used these tasty little meatballs and the dipping sauce to make mini meatball sliders. Aside from increasing the greek seasoning to 2 tsp I made as written and will do so many more times in the future. If you enjoy things a little bit out of the box then this is a must try! The few leftovers I had got crumbled into a salad along with the extra kalamatas and feta some cucumbers and tomato and a hummus ranch dressing. So perfect for a light dinner. Read More
