Greek Gyros with Meatballs provide a comfort dinner with little effort. Your weeknight cooking just got a lot easier.
Fall is in the air. To me that means time for comfort food. Often times, comfort food gets the reputation of taking all day to make. That just isn’t true! Now, you can probably simmer a sauce for hours, but who has time for that? I am all about quick, easy, and still tasting great. School is in full swing, and with that comes homework, sports, clubs, practices, and more. But just because we are busy does not mean we won’t be having comfort food on a weeknight.
My definition of comfort food has changed a little since I was a child. These days a classic Indian curry or Balsamic Pork over Polenta is more what I crave. Greek food ranks right up there as well. I could probably have gyros twice a week, and be one happy girl! So I decided to come up with a quick way I could get the flavor of them at home. I also love meatballs, so I blended two of my favorites together, and came up with these Greek gyros with meatballs.
Sandwiches are always great for weeknights. And meatball sandwiches are just kind of fun to eat! I used a recipe for homemade pitas because I had extra time the day I made these. But feel free to use store bought pitas or naan bread. Even traditional hoagie rolls would be great.
The Greek meatballs have spices you probably have in your pantry already, so they come together very quickly. Tzatziki sauce is super easy to make. I like to squeeze all the liquid out of the cucumber, so the sauce isn’t runny. Aside from that, you just stir a few things together. My 9 year old isn’t a big fan of the tzatziki sauce, so he just uses a little ranch instead.
Trust me, definitely weeknight worthy!
