Greek Mint and Ouzo Flavored Meatballs - Keftedakia

2 slices Italian bread, crusts removed
1/4 cup Ouzo
7 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1 pound ground turkey
1 egg
1 teaspoon dried mint flakes
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
fresh ground black pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour

Pour Ouzo in a small bowl. Tear bread into small pieces and soak
in Ouzo 5 minutes. In a skillet, over medium heat, saute onion in
3 tablespoons oil until translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from
skillet with a slotted spoon and place in a large mixing bowl.
Squeeze bread dry, discarding Ouzo, and combine with onions. Add
in turkey, egg, mint, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper and mix well
to combine. Form meat mixture into 1" balls and roll in flour to
coat evenly. Place on a cookie sheet and refrigerate 1 hour. Add
remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil to a large skillet, over medium
high heat, and saute meatballs until browned, about 8 - 10 minutes.
