Meatball Pitas

375 calories; $3.00 / Serving

If this isn’t the fanciest “throw together” weeknight dinner…. I don’t know what is. Literally just meatballs on pita with some lettuce, tomato, and tzatziki sauce. BAM! WHAM BAM! SHAZAM!

Ingredients:

  • Pita bread
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Tzatziki sauce*
  • 1 lb Ground Beef or Turkey**
  • 1/2 cup Seasoned Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Egg

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine the meat, egg, and breadcrumbs. Loosely roll into 8 meatballs and place into a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.

When the meatballs are done, roll them up in the pita bread with the lettuce, tomato, and tzatziki sauce. 

* If you can’t find tzatziki sauce, just mix garlic powder and lemon juice into some sour cream or plain Greek yogurt. It’s not tzatziki, but it’s just as tasty.

Vegetarian Option: Use vegetarian “Meatballs”
