For the meat balls:
- 1 kg of mince meat
- 125 grams of rice
- 25 ml of olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1 piece of finely chopped up parsley.
- 1 grated onion
- salt, pepper, mint
Place in the pot with the water:
- 1 carrot chopped
- 1 piece of celery chopped
Place in the pot at the half hour point:

For the lemon-egg (Avgolemono) juice.
Making the meat balls with the potatoes
All the meat ball ingredients should be mixed together.
Create hand sized balls from the mixed ingredients. Place
some water into a pot with salt, pepper and olive oil. Place
the chopped celery and carrot into the pot. When the water comes
to a boil place the hand sized balls into the pot. Let the meat
balls boil in the water for 1 hour. On the half hour mark place
the small skinned potatoes into the pot.
Making the Avgolemono juice
After 1 hour take 250
ml of water from the pot. Take the yolk of the egg and beat it
until it becomes thick. When the yolk becomes thick place the yolk in and beat together,
then squeeze the juice from a lemon and mix together once again.
Then place the water into the lemon and egg mixture and beat together.
When you are done mixing the Avgolemono juice place the
juice into the pot. Now you
are ready to serve.
