This is a pretty cool discovery that I tried this weekend and its not so bad. This is how you make them and what they look like - add feta, oregano, and lemon juice to a food processor and pulse and stuff your choice of olives with the mixture. Whisk flour, milk, and egg and dip your olives in the batter. Place the olives in hot cooking oil and fry!

Gently fry sounds much better than deep fry :)

What to add to your melitzanosalata to spice it up

There are many things you can add to your Melitzanosalata to spice things up. Here are a few suggestions: crushed walnuts, roasted red peppers, spicy peppers, pomegranate seeds, tahini, crispy eggplant skin, crispy fried onions, green onions for garnishing. All of these will upgrade a classic dip :)

Greek fries are the best for a get together!

I like to buy frozen fries and make these at home in the oven by sprinkling some feta on top!!! So easy and too good :)

Is it possible to use ground pork or lamb for Greek ground beef recipes?

Im not a huge fan of ground beef sometimes and I like to switch up the types of protein that I use. Has anyone tried making pastitsio or gemista with pork or lamb for example? How was it?
