    This was posted for the Zaar World Tour 2005. You will often fins cinnamon used in Greek meat dishes, and this is one of them. Nice with rice.

      I made this with ground turkey for less fatty taste. The only issue with the recipe is it seems to say you should add the wine to the meat mixture and then says you should add the wine to the sauce. I ended up adding the wine to the meatballs and they turned out moist. Only used 1/2 tsp cinnamon and it was enough for us.

      I enjoyed this dish alot. I mixed half ground turkey and half ground beef. I used the 1/2 t. of cinnamon. Loved the addition of cumin seeds. Thanks Sylvie!

      This was certainly very easy to make and my hubby liked them a lot. They just weren't to my taste, but that's just a personal thing and I'm probably biased from all the soutzoukakia I've had in the past! But this was a very quick weeknight dinner and fun to make - thanks for posting!
