Spartiatika Loukanika are the famous Spartan Sausages, which are flavoured with orange peel, red wine and spices.
In Greece, it is customary to have at least one meat dish as part of a meze or appetizer spread and if it is available, loukanika is a favorite choice.
Some places in Greece use there traditional recipes to mix their own. However, this type of sausage is also widely available in the markets. You also don’t need to visit a restaurant in order to eat this dish as a meze or appetizer. It is just as common inside the home as it is when dining out.
Meze are meant to be small dishes that are enjoyed while drinking and is a tradition that has its roots in Ancient Greece.
