Greek Meatballs on Pitas

Greek Meatballs on Pitas

This meal is one of the greater successes with our kids. They love meatballs. This style of meatball tastes fresh and sweet with a bit of tang. This recipe is modified from Rachael Ray's version and we love making them (especially because they freeze so easy).

2 lbs. ground beef (or ground lamb)
1/4 cup feta
2 T flour or bread crumbs
1 tsp oregano
1 bunch mint chopped
2 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
Salt & Pepper

Hand mix. Roll into meatballs. I typically divide this into two bags and freeze. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Serve on pitas with tzatziki (how do you spell this word??) sauce.

Tzatziki Sauce:
1 cup plain greek yogurt
Zest of 1 lemon
~2-3 shakes of dill
2 Tbsp. chopped cucumber
Salt and pepper to taste
