  • To make zaatar meatballs, combine all Zaatar Meatball Ingredients and mix gently.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer for flavors to meld and to allow meatball mixture to firm up (this makes it easier to form meatballs).
  • Wet both hands and make small meatballs, about 1" in diameter. Heat 1/2 cup of water in a deep saucepan.
  • Gently place meatballs in pan, and cook until water is just evaporated, turning meatballs after a few minutes to color all sides.
  • Heat oil in a skillet. Brown meatballs and cook through.
