Each of our Taste Test Reviews comes with the original recipe and the tester's notes/changes listed with the ingredient list in blue. We hope you enjoy!


If you enjoy Greek food, you have to try this recipe! I love the flavor combinations in Greek cooking and frequently visit our local Greek restaurant for meals, but with this recipe in my repertoire, I can now make some of my favorites at home! The cumin and coriander marry perfectly with the gaminess of the lamb. If you do not have access to a grill, these bake up nicely in the oven as well. A relatively quick recipe, these koftas will provide a tasty protein boost to your meal.
