Meatballs with Greek Yogurt Sauce

You know how every once in a while you make something and it just "hits the spot" in such a way where you end up eating the same meal for at least 4 or 5 meals in a row? 

Well, enter Meatballs with Greek Yogurt Sauce! My goodness, it makes me want to sing.  (Don't worry, I won't).

Seriously, make these and eat them for 5 consecutive meals.

Meatballs with Cucumber Greek Yogurt Sauce


1 medium cucumber, peeled partially
1 small carton plain Greek Yogurt (5 or 6 oz)
2 Tbsp fresh mint, snipped
1 16 oz package frozen meatballs, thawed
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp crushed red peppers
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 package flatbread or naan


Preheat broiler.

Coarsely shred half the cucumber and combine with yogurt and mint.

In a small bowl combine the garlic powder, peppers and oregano and sprinkle on the thawed meatballs. Place on a baking sheet and cook in the broiler until heated through, turning occasionally. (8-10 minutes)

Slice the other half of the cucumber and set aside.

Warm flatbread in microwave.

Spread the sauce on the bottom of the flatbread or naan and place onion, cucumbers and meatballs over sauce.  Sprinkle with additional seasonings, if desired.

  1. This is so yummy! I didn't think it would be that filling but I was wrong - just one and I was full so we had plenty for leftovers. Easy!
