Gyro Meatballs

These meatballs taste like the meat inside of a Gyro. Super quick and easy to prepare. I make the Tzatziki Sauce, and chop the veggies to go on salad, while meatballs are baking in the oven.

I like to serve it on Arugula tossed with Lemon, Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper. Then top it off with Onion, Cucumbers, Red Bell Peppers, Kalamata Olives, Tzatziki, and Feta Cheese.

You can also serve in some Keto Naan Bread. To make it similar to a traditional Gyro. I like Headbanger’s Kitchen Coconut Naan Recipe. Recipe for Naan Bread here: https://headbangerskitchen.com/recipe/keto-naan-low-carb-tortillas/

Gyro Meatballs

Serves 4

– Avocado Oil (for coating pan and drizzling on meatballs before baking)

– 2 lbs. Ground Beef (85% Lean is what I used)

– 1/4 Cup Pork Rind Dust (Pork Rinds/Chicharrones ground into a powder in a food processor)

– 1/4 Cup Grated, Parmesan

– 1 tsp. Salt

– 1 tsp. Ground, Cumin

– 2 tsps. Garam Masala

– 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder

– 1/2 tsp. Onion Powder

-1 Egg

Preparation:

-Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare 2 large roasting pans with tinfoil and generously coat tinfoil with avocado oil. Set aside.

– Mix all Meatball ingredients into large bowl until well combined.

-Oil Medium Sized(#40) Cookie Scooper. Scoop onto prepared pans. (If you don’t have one, just roll into an inch and a half sized balls.) Makes 60 Meatballs. Drizzle some avocado oil over tops of meatballs to give them a nice sheen.

-Bake for 20-22 minutes.

-While baking meatballs prepare Tzatziki and chop veggies for salad.

Note: If you’re making Coconut Naan Bread to make gyros, prepare that before starting meatballs.( Or make ahead and freeze)
