Mushroom Balls

10 big fresh mushrooms, 1 onion, 4 slices of stale bread soaked in water, 2 eggs, salt, pepper, oregano, cumin, olive oil for frying.

Wash and cut the mushrooms into small pieces. Salt them and let them dry. Chop the onion and combine with the soaked bread and the rest of the ingredients into a bowl. Mould into small balls. Coat them with flour and fry into hot oil. They are served with ouzo so you might as well add a small cup of it into the mixture.
