    Middle Eastern Baked Kufta

    My blog’s two year anniversary was just the other day. Where does the time go? It makes me so happy to share a part of me with all of you. This recipe is influenced by my mama but has my special touches! You can say that Kufta is a staple in Middle Eastern households. It is made at least a few times a month in different forms. Sometimes grilled, sometimes baked with veggies or even in a tahini sauce. This recipe is really easy to put together and makes for a delicious meal with rice and salad. I promise this will be a recipe on rotation in your household! Servings:…
