    Could I use this spice blend to make greek meatballs? If so, in what sort of quantity should I incorporate it?

      Hi Lee, yes you definitely can use this blend for meatballs! I haven’t tested them though, so I don’t know exactly which quantity of seasoning to use off-hand. I can test it before the end of the month and let you know for sure, or you can give it a shot yourself. This is what I would do to test: I would start with a pound of beef and mix in 1 tablespoon of the seasoning. Then I’d break off a small amount and form a 1-inch patty and fry it and see how it tastes. If it’s good, make meatballs! If there is no flavor, add another tablespoon of seasoning (or just more salt, if that’s what it needs) and go from there. That’s what I will do when I test it, but I can’t test them until 9/28. So. If you want to try before then, do that! Otherwise I’ll reply with my findings and let you know. Thank you! -Meggan
