Savory Spice Shop Ingredients
Za'Atar Seasoning 1 oz bag $2.30

Ingredients:

Notes:

Shaping the meatballs into pyramids not only makes for a fun presentation, but makes them easier to brown without chasing them around the pan!

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix 6 tsp. Za’Atar into the ground meat. Create 10 golf ball sized meatballs and place them on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Using both hands, press evenly with forefingers and thumbs on both sides of the meatballs to form into pyramid shapes. Heat olive oil in a deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Brown each side of the meatballs, 1 to 2 min. per side. Place meatballs back on baking sheets and sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp. Za’Atar. Bake in oven for 5 to 6 min. to finish.

Serving Suggestions:

Great served with Cinnamon Lemon Couscous and Mt. Olympus Spiced Tzatziki Sauce.

Yields:

10 meatballs

“I just wanted to say thank you for processing my first order so quickly. We fell in love with Chimayo chile powder in Santa Fe, and couldn't find it anywhere else until we found your website.”
