A popular tradational Turkish meat meal which is known as in Turkish : Köfte, it is the name given to anything made from mince.

1 onion

Kofte is sould be very small and main principle is to mix the mince with an egg, bread, an onion, the chopped parsley and the spices and then bake. It is also possible to breadcrumb the small meatballs or to fill them with cheese. Other variations are the “ladies’ thigh” - larger Köfte with a cheese and rice filling, mostly breadcrumbed.
