Meatballs with Yogurt Tzatziki Sauce      

Meatballs with FAGE Yogurt sauce

I live a hectic life, and I am always on the go, so creating a recipe that is easy, healthy and versatile is my idea of perfection. I love Mediterranean flavors, so meatballs with Greek yogurt are my savior for busy days.

I like to use FAGE Total plain Greek yogurt because it’s rich in protein, has no added sugar, preservative free and gluten free. 

 Greek style meatballs served with Tzatziki sauce are great as an appetizer or served over rice, in a salad or a pita bread. This recipe also makes a perfect make-ahead lunch.

Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Meatballs

1lb of lean ground beef

2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1 large egg

1/2 onion, finely chopped

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of dried oregano

black pepper to taste

Yogurt Sauce

1 1/2 cups of FAGE Total 2% Yogurt 

1 small English cucumber, finely chopped

2 tablespoons of freshly chopped dill

1 teaspoon of salt

pepper to taste

Meatballs with FAGE Yogurt sauce

Directions

1. In a mixing bowl, all meatball ingredients s kneading by hand or using a hand-held mixer

2. Shape meatballs using about 1.5 tablespoons of mix per meatball. 

3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and spray it generously with cooking spray. Place the meatballs in the skillet and brown them for 2-3 minutes on each side, until thoroughly cooked.

4. While the meatballs are cooking, make the yogurt dipping sauce by simply whisking all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.

These are perfect to make ahead and can be enjoyed as an appetizer or served in pita bread for a more heartier dish.
