  • 1 pound 93 percent lean ground beef
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 4 tablespoons finely ground old fashioned oats (food processor)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh baby dill
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 medium red onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely grated zucchini
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • tzatziki sauce for serving
  • chopped cucumbers and tomatoes for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Drizzle a large oven-safe skillet or baking dish with olive oil.
  2. In a large bowl combine all ingredients (except for olive oil, tzatziki sauce, cucumbers and tomatoes) and mix well. Shape into 1 1/2 inch balls and place in prepared skillet or baking dish.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until browned and cooked through the center. Serve meatballs gyro-style wrapped in a pita with tomatoes, lettuce, and tzatziki sauce, or serve meatballs alone for a grab-n-go meal.
