I love a good meatball gyro because of the amazing flavors of Mediterranean cuisine. These Greek Meatball Gyros are packed with flavor, drizzled with tzatziki sauce, and topped with a quick tomato and cucumber salad.
There is a local Greek food restaurant in town that I seriously love, and they made these amazing gyros. I get them every single time. They are just that good! To satisfy my cravings, I made these amazing Greek meatball gyros the other day. They are made with my super delicious Greek Meatballs and a homemade tzatziki sauce. The meatball gyros are then topped with a super quick tomato and cucumber salad. Imagine all those flavors wrapped in a warm and fluffy Greek pita…yummy!
I’ve made these several times already, and it’s been devoured every single time! I love how the tzatziki sauce and the tomato and cucumber salad add a layer of freshness to these Greek meatball gyros. They are the best thing ever!
Making the Greek Meatballs
First of all, the most important component of these Greek Meatball gyros…yup, you guessed it…the meatballs!
You can find the full Greek Meatballs recipe on my site. These were seriously ultra delicious! I won’t spend too much time going over how to make Greek meatballs here in this blog post, but you can definitely go to the recipe link and find all the yummy details there!
For each gyro, you’ll need about 4 meatballs, depending on how big your pita bread is. I’d recommend splitting the meatballs in half to make it easier to assemble.
Assembling the Greek Meatball Gyros
Here’s what you need to assemble these amazing meatball gyros:
- warm and fluffy Greek style pita bread
- Greek Meatballs
- homemade tzatziki sauce
- a quick and easy tomato cucumber salad (recipe below)
- shredded lettuce
- feta cheese crumbles
On top of a warm Greek pita bread, add a layer of shredded lettuce, then top with a few meatballs, tomato cucumber salad, tzatziki sauce, and feta crumbles. In order to hold everything together, wrap with foil or close with a toothpick.
Tips for Making These Meatball Gyros
- If you prefer, make the meatballs ahead of time, up to 1 day ahead. However, it’s always better if made the same day!
- Warm up the pita bread in the oven or microwave oven.
- Use Greek style pita bread – they are thicker and fluffier than other types of pita.
