Sheet Pan Greek Meatballs – Greek flavored meatballs make for an easy dinner. Serve with tzatziki sauce for dipping and pitas to make gyros.
I love meatballs. They can be Italian Meatballs or they can be Honey Garlic Meatballs. Or just about anything in between. There is just something about a good tender meatball and a sauce that goes with it.
Another thing I like. Greek food! I have a slight obsession with a place about a mile and a half from my house, and their delicious gyros. They have the best tzatziki sauce! But going out to eat all the time isn’t a good idea. So I like to come up with Greek flavors at home, so we can enjoy it more often!
Greek Turkey Burgers are one of our favorites to make when grilling season is here. Or just under the broiler in the winter works too, we aren’t picky. These sheet pan Greek meatballs are made with beef instead of turkey, but have a lot of the same flavors. You could definitely use lamb for these meatballs, but it is just a little bit pricier.
To make these meatballs, you mix everything together in a bowl like you normally would, and then place on a baking sheet. You put them under the broiler for 7-8 minutes to cook. They get a nice sear on the outside, but stay super tender and moist on the inside.
I personally would be happy to have just meatballs with dipping sauce, but I know my family likes more. So I served these sheet pan Greek meatballs with pitas, diced tomatoes, red onions and cucumbers. Everyone could assemble their own gyro like sandwich, or just dip and eat.
These meatballs are a fun and easy dinner any night of the week. Even my picky eater son loved these minus the tzatziki sauce, he opted for ranch.
