Greek Meatballs with Tzatziki Sauce


Oven-roasted Greek Meatballs with Tzatziki Sauce make for the perfect weeknight dinner. Hearty, simple, and delicious! This summery sheet-pan meal is an all-in-one dinner, but you can choose to pack in more vegetables by serving it with a crisp giant green salad, sour cream and chive mashed potatoes, or these guilt-free garlic Parmesan zucchini noodles.

Making homemade meatballs is easy. In a mixing bowl, mix together the ground meat, red onion, garlic, fresh herbs, spices, salt, and black pepper. Shape the mixture into balls and arrange on a large baking sheet drizzled with olive oil. Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Once you’ve formed the meatballs, the rest of the recipe comes together pretty quickly. It’s a matter of combining the cucumber, garlic, and dill in a food processor and pulsing until finely chopped. Then just add the cucumber mixture to the Greek yogurt and stir. I recommend using full-fat yogurt for this recipe. It is key to getting the desired creaminess. Once the meatballs are done, serve them with plenty of tzatziki sauce, and enjoy!

To make the Greek Meatballs with Tzatziki Sauce, you will need the following ingredients:
