Recipe for Greek Meatball Gyros
Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Meatball Gyros
Meatballs, known as keftedes in Greek, aren’t a traditional ingredient in gyros. However, it does make for a nice variation to try at home. If making the meatballs from scratch, you might want to make them smaller than normal so they can fit in the sandwich.
Greek Meatball (Keftedes) Gyro Recipe Ingredients:
- 4 Greek pita bread rounds
- 1 recipe Greek tzatziki
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 medium tomatoes, diced
- 1 recipe Greek meatballs (keftedes)
- Dried Greek Oregano, to garnish
How to Make Greek Meatball Gyros:
Prepare the pita bread and tzatziki according to the recipe instructions. You can also use store bought pita bread and tzatziki if you don’t feel like making them yourself. When buying the bread, though, it is worth it to find authentic Greek pitas, they have a different texture and are perfect for these sandwiches.
Place a piece of aluminum foil down on a flat surface. Place a round of pita bread over the foil. Spread tzatziki across the middle of the pita bread. Top with chopped onion, diced tomato and then add some meatballs. Sprinkle more tzatziki over the top, if desired. Also sprinkle some oregano over all the ingredients.
Roll the gyro sandwich and wrap it in aluminum foil so it can hold the shape. Repeat until you’ve used up all the bread.
