Köfte is the name given to anything made from mince, which resembles rissoles, but is a little different. Köfte themselves should be very small, totally unlike rissoles. However, the principle is still the same: mix the mince with an egg, bread, an onion, the chopped parsley and the spices and then bake (preferably on a grill pan). It is also possible to breadcrumb the small meatballs or to fill them with cheese (normal pan). Other variations are the “ladies’ thigh” - larger Köfte with a cheese and rice filling, mostly breadcrumbed. We also prepare a sauce made from the chopped tomatoes, the pressed garlic and the salt, pepper and oregano (or thyme and basil, if you prefer) and then heated (simmer for an hour). On occasions, we cook our Köfte in the oven with a few pepperoni on tin foil (dried) for half an hour at 225 to 250 degrees. Arrange everything on a plate and pour the sauce over it. One final thought: add a garlic/yoghurt sauce and serve with Pide or a baguette
