These tirokroketes are great to make, especially for parties!

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated kasseri cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Olive oil, for frying
To make the tirokroketes, you will need to combine the feta, kasseri, cumin, and pepper to the bowl of the food processor and pulse until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until cold, which should take about 2 hours. Roll into a ball and place on a plate in a single layer. Pour oil into a fry pan until it covers about 1/2 inch. Set the heat to medium and let the oil heat. Add the flour to a small dish, pour the milk into a small bowl, and spread the breadcrumbs into a small plate. Roll one ball of cheese into the flour, dunk it into the milk, and then roll it in the bread crumbs. And then all you need to do is fry!!

How to make authentic Greek moussaka (Greeces national dish)

If you don't know how to make this dish then do you really love Greek cooking??? Just joking, let me know if you like this recipe :)

How to make Greek artichoke salad!

First, remove the tough outer leaves of the artichokes and cut off part of the stems. Cut off about 1 inch from the tips. Cut artichokes in half lengthwise and scoop out the choke. Drop into boiling salted water seasoned with the juice of one lemon and one tablespoon olive oil. You may also roast the artichokes in the oven as shown in the picture . Cook for 30 minutes or until tender. Serve with a dressing of 1/2 cup olive oil and 4 tablespoons lemon juice, which is about the juice of 1 lemon. This is a super simple recipe and its not like your typical "salad." A salad in Greece can just be marinated vegetables.

How to make avgolemono so you can put it on everything

Avgolemono can be put on literally everything!! I like to put it on gemista and dolmadakia :) This is how you make it

Ingredients: 1-2 cups broth or pan juices from the dish for which you are making avgolemono, 2 eggs, Juice of 1-2 lemons

Gradually beat in a spoonful at a time of hot broth until the mixture is very warm. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the pot with the rest of the hot broth and stir continuously until the sauce thickens slightly. Do not allow to boil because it will cook the eggs and the sauce will separate.

And this is what it looks like

What is more traditional? Dolmades (grape leaves) or lahanodolmades?

Is either of them more traditional? I would like to try making one of them this weekend :)

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?
