Cyprus BBQ's Meze Collection - #5 Keftedes

Posted on September 28 2015

A traditional Cypriot staple, a wonderfully savoury Keftedes.


4 x Slices of white bread. (no crusts)

2 x Table Spoons Milk.

1 x Clove garlic.

1 x Onion

4 x Table spoons salt

1 x Table spoon salt

Ground black pepper

230g Ground Beef.

230g Ground Lamb.

4 x Eggs.

60g White flour.

Olive Oil.



Tear up the bread into chunks & place in milk. Finely chop the garlic & onion and to the bowl with milk & bread. Add in the beef, lamb, & eggs. Mix together well with hands.

Roll the mixture into 3/4 cm balls. Put flour in a shallow pan & roll Keftedes balls in flour to coat. Shake off any excess flour, and use a plate or baking sheet and flatten slightly.

Fry on a large skillet or frying pan over a medium heat. Cook until brown. Ensure Keftedes are not pink in the middle and drain oil by resting on kitchen paper.


We recommend serving them with pitta & Talatouri, a Cypriot version of Tzatziki.

We hope you enjoy this recipe and would love to hear from you if you use it. It's nice to hear about what works, doesn't work and any personal tweaks you may have made!
