One of my tricks for creating the perfect meatball is to combine two different meats. For this recreation of chicken marsala, I made pork and chicken meatballs. When using a lean protein like ground chicken breast, you want to combine it with a protein with a slightly higher fat content, like ground pork or beef.

If you regularly shop at Trader Joe’s, then I’m sure you have your favorite (or list of favorite) Trader Joe’s products. We all have them! My list includes their apricot stilton cheese, peanut butter granola bars and soy chorizo.
I recently found out that Kurt’s favorite item is their Mini Raviolis. Unlike most packaged raviolis that you find in the refrigerator section of the grocery store, Trader Joe’s sells theirs in the dry packaged pasta section.
The first time we ate them for dinner, I couldn’t help but thinking of Chef Boyardee cans of mini raviolis with meatballs, so I decided to recreate this childhood favorite. This slow cooker recipe that takes the dish out of the can and into a fresh, flavorful recipe that’s easy to make and sure to be a favorite for the whole family!

Sometimes it’s recipe inspiration from a restaurant, or recent trip, sometimes it’s a recipe twist on an old family favorite. Sometimes it’s a direct request from the boyfriend, i.e. Swedish Meatballs!
Greek Meatballs with Tzatziki Sauce are filled with flavor and easy to make, creating the perfect party appetizer or weeknight meal!
Last week I had a craving for meatballs and Greek food, so I created 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!
Greek Meatballs Ingredients
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup red onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 small tomato (chopped)
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp allspice
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ cup parmesan cheese
¼ cup feta cheese
¼ cup breadcrumbs
Greek Meatballs Instructions
Combine the ground beef, onion, garlic and tomato in a large bowl.
Add the cinnamon, allspice, cayenne pepper and ground cloves.
Add the feta cheese, parmesan, breadcrumbs and egg, then combine well.
Form the mixture into meatballs.
Grill over medium heat for 20 minutes, flipping half way through.
If you do not have a grill available (or this sweet meatball griller), you can also bake the meatballs in the oven at 400°F for 20 minutes.
While the meatballs are grilling prepare the Tzatziki sauce by combining the following ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
1 cup greek yogurt
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon (juiced)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp fresh dill
Remove the meatballs from the grill or oven and serve with the sauce.
