This classic soup is perfect for a cold winter’s day. Made with meatballs and rice and polished with a creamy sauce, giouvarlakia are hearty, mouthwatering, and utterly addictive. Simplicity at its finest, the secret ingredient being the avgolemono (egg-lemon) sauce. Careful not to overthicken the pottage as it may get too lumpy (a very common mistake). Best served with bread to soak up all that yummy egg-lemon sauce.
