Ah, the gyro. One of my all time faves. The combo between the juicy, tender meat, soft pita, crunchy veggies, and creamy, super flavorful tzatziki is enough to make me stand up on my chair and do a little jig 💃🏻
If we are at a state fair slash basically anywhere with street food and there’s a gyro truck – seeeeeeeya – you know where to find me!
I like making gyros at home, but I also really like the meat they use in food trucks and restaurants. I think the street food meat is more closely mimicked in meatball form when you are making at-home-versions. Hence….these turkey meatball gyros!
These meatballs make gyros a super achievable week night meal for you that is loaded with all kinds of yummy Greek flavor.
We’ve got the traditional veggie pairings: tomato, cuke, red ernion. We’ve got the soft pita that you steam in the microwave so it’s pliable and pillowy. We’ve got the juicy meatballs that are loaded up with all kinds of Greek flavors: oregano, minced onion, garlic powder, dill, and a splash of red wine vinegar. We’ve got the TZATZIKI. Is there anything better than a solid tzatziki sauce? Is it uncommon for someone to have the desire to rub it on their skin like lotion? Asking for a friend.
Tzatziki is so simple but absolutely mouthwateringly delicious. All you’ve got is some Greek yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice, dill, and garlic. Throw some salt in there and call it a day.…
