1R 1.5G 1Y


Turkey Meatball:
1 lb. ground turkey
¼ cup finely diced red onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon oregano
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
salt & pepper to season
2 tablespoons olive oil

Tzatziki Sauce:
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
¼ cup grated cucumber
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon dry dill
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt to taste

½ cup thinly sliced red onion
1 cup diced tomato
1 cup diced cucumber
4 whole wheat flatbreads


  1. To a large bowl add, ground turkey, diced red onion, minced garlic, oregano, fresh spinach, salt, and pepper. Using your hands mix all the ingredients together until meat forms a ball and sticks together.
  2. Then using your hands, form meat mixture into 1″ balls. (you should be able to get about 12 meatballs).
  3. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Add olive oil to the pan, and then add the meatballs. Cook each side for 3-4 minutes until they are browned on all sides. Remove from the pan and let rest.
  4. In the meantime, to a small bowl add greek yogurt, grated cucumber, lemon juice, dill, garlic powder, and salt to taste. Mix together until everything is combined.
  5. Assemble the gyros: to a flatbread (I like to warm mine up so they are more pliable) add 3 meatballs, sliced red onion, tomato, and cucumber. Then top with Tzatziki sauce.

I divided the meatballs among 4 small mason jars and then in 4 separate larger mason jars, I layered my tzatziki sauce, red onion, cucumber, tomato, and spinach. I put the flatbread in a baggie and when ready to eat, I heated the meatballs and assembled my gyro.
