Woman's Day Meatball Souvlakis

The original recipe calls for serving the souvlakis with a yogurt sauce but I didn't have any plain yogurt on hand.

1/3 cup plain bread crumbs
1 egg
1 T minced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 t ground cumin
1/4 t each: salt and pepper
1 lb ground beef
fresh pita bread

Tomato-Mint Salsa
3 fresh tomatoes, sliced
1 T fresh onion, minced
1 t dried mint, rubbed
sea salt to taste
fresh lemon juice to taste
garnish: shredded lettuce

Preheat oven to 400ยบ.

In a large bowl, mix bread crumbs, egg, minced onion, garlic, cumin, and salt and pepper. Add beef and mix til well blended. Scoop by a tablespoon, then roll into balls; place on a baking pan.

Bake 20 minutes. Turn. Bake 5 minutes more or til cooked through.

While meatballs bake, mix salsa ingredients. Set aside.

Serve balls on pitas topped with salsa and lettuce.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d281/d176/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
