Greek Meatballs

posted in: Recipes 0

Greek meatballs is a perfect way to spice up your dinner. It's a fun way to introduce picky eaters to the flavors of the Mediterranean. The tzatziki sauce is a perfect compliment to the meatballs, but my kids love dipping them in ranch : ) If you want to add them to a pita shell, with a little feta and lettuce, it's a great way to enjoy them. I like mine with couscous. I hope you enjoy!

  • Place meatballs on a clean cookie sheet and bake in the oven for an additional 7-10 minutes.
