How to Chop Herbs
1. Combine feta, breadcrumbs, parsley, dill and egg in a medium-sized bowl. Season to taste. Using wet hands, shape mixture into
small bite-sized balls.
2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan on high. Fry balls in batches until golden, turning frequently.
3. Drain on a paper towel and serve hot with lemon wedges on the side.
- To make fresh breadcrumbs, cut any stale bread into thin slices. Spread on an oven tray and bake for 15-20 minutes at 170°C until golden. Remove from oven and leave to cool. Whizz in a food processor to form crumbs.
- For something a little different, add 50g of cooked bacon or sundried tomatoes
