I want to make Greek meatballs (keftedes), but meatball recipes always call for white bread, which I don't eat. Can't I use whole wheat bread when making meatballs instead of white bread? If not, why not?
Keftedes are one of my favorite Greek dishes. There is no reason you can't make these beauties with wheat bread. Just use a little less since wheat bread is denser than white bread. The bread just might give the meatballs a very interesting flavor although with all of the other ingredients you may not even notice.
