Came out perfectomundo! As a child, I loved my mother's giourvalakia. This recipe tasted just like hers. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out great!

Very good, and quite authentic. The dried mint is a MUST for yiouvarlakia (sic). I did add lots of veg to my stock as this is a recipe where I can successfully add lots of little 'extras' for my kids - a couple of zucchini and carrots, a potato, some celery - all minced. Makes for a really delicious stock. The egg-lemon sauce was perfect, but I would have liked to see a liquid measure for the amount of lemon juice required - lemons vary so much in size, and some are juicy while others are not...I ended up using 1/3 of a cup of lemon juice for this particular recipe to give it the amount of lemony-flavour we like.
