Turkey Koftas

I’ve been wanting to try these for a while, but my husband wasn’t sure about them so I held off. He finally capitulated, but he’s not a fan of Mediterranean flavors like I am.

Very tasty!

The best news… hubby says he’s happy to BBQ them up for me any time I want!!!

Served initially w/ my Garlic Cheese Herbed Cauliflower Crown.
