Greek Spaghetti and Meatballs

Another of my Greek papa's recipes. I absolutely love the the orange and cinnamon flavor. It freezes well so I always make an extra batch ;-)


  • 1 lb Hamburger (not lean)
  • 2 Tbsp. diced onions
  • 12 saltine crackers, crushed
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. grated orange rind
  • Ad

  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • 28 oz can tomato sauce
  • spaghetti (or other non-flavored favorite pasta)


Combine all ingredients, except pasta, and round, into dollar size balls. Brown meatballs in a skillet on medium heat. Transfer the meatballs, and the hamburger grease from browning them, into a baking dish. Add the tomato sauce. Bake covered for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F. Cook your choice of pasta "al dente" and smother with sauce and meatballs.

Serve with Greek Salad (tomato, cucumber, red onion all cut your favorite way; tossed with olive oil, red wine vinegar, crumbled Greek feta cheese and pitted Kalamata olives). Also serve with Greek feta cheese, Kalamata olives and French bread with room temp unsalted butter. Don't forget to serve with orange wedges as a garnish/fruit treat.
