Gluten Free Greek Meatballs

Last week I had a craving for meatballs and Greek food, so I created Greek Meatballs!

Greek Meatballs

I combined some of my favorite spices from my Greek Moussaka recipe with delicious feta cheese and ground beef, then paired the meatballs with a flavorful Tzatziki Sauce and served them to friends at an NBA playoff watch party I hosted!

They were a hit and will definitely be served at my next party!
