Ingredients

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

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Drizzle a large oven-safe skillet or baking dish with olive oil.

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.

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.
