Sheet Pan Greek Meatballs and Tzatziki bowls are an easy weeknight dinner that always tastes delicious and feels special. Oven baked meatballs served with thick sweet potatoes fries, lots of Tzatziki sauce, and all the “extras”. Lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, and a tasty olive and feta dressing. Serve these easy-to-throw-together bowls with fresh pitas and you’ll have a Greek-inspired dinner that’s SO GOOD!

It’s the first week of May and I’m really feeling and embracing the springtime vibes after a week spent in sunny LA. It’s not very springy here, but as is usual at this time of year, I’m working to surround myself with flowers.

And keeping the recipes I create very spring-inspired!

We’re starting the week off with a fun, and even more delicious, Greek-inspired meatball and Tzatziki bowl. Which, of course, was very much inspired by my oldest brother, Creighton.

By now we all know that Creighton loves meatballs and adores Greek food. Growing up and living in Cleveland, we were lucky to enjoy authentic Greek food. It’s one of the things I miss about Ohio.

Thankfully, I have Creighton always pushing me to try new things, especially cooking with lamb. Yes, lately he’s really been on me to create more lamb recipes. So these meatballs started there, with ground lamb as the base.

The details

I kept these pretty simple. Most Greek meatballs use onions, but I decided to use shallots since I enjoy the flavor a little more. Then lots of fresh parsley, oregano, paprika, and chili flakes.

Instead of getting the stovetop all messy, I baked the meatballs. Which I love because they always turn out perfect.

Another food that Creighton’s been loving is sweet potatoes. So I added sweet potato fries into the mix as well. Just roast them up while the meatballs bake. The timing works out perfectly.

While everything is cooking, I began to work on the dressing. It’s an olive oil based red wine dressing with herbs, chunky olives, and feta cheese. I tossed in roasted lemon and garlic too, which makes the dressing super flavorful and rich.

It really is yummy when spooned over the meatballs. The Greek olives are my favorite ingredient. Oh, and the pepperoncini, which I’m very into right now.

Assemble

Like a lot of my recipes these days, I ended up serving this bowl-style. First I layered in lots of Tzatziki sauce (our favorite). Added a mix of lettuce, avocado, and tomatoes. Threw the meatballs and potatoes into the mix. And then spooned the dressing over everything.

Lastly, as I usually do with any Greek-inspired recipe I serve, I added pitas on the side.

Sheet Pan Greek Meatballs and Tzatziki | halfbakedharvest.comSuch a fun and bright dinner for any night of the week. And what I love is that the leftovers are perfect for enjoying the next day for lunch! I know many of you make a double batch of meatballs to enjoy throughout the week. These meatballs are perfect for batch cooking!

Creighton wasn’t in Colorado when I made this. But when I sent him the photo, he was bummed he wasn’t. Definitely his kind of dinner!

Ingredients

Olive Dressing

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
    2. Combine the lamb, shallots, parsley, oregano, paprika, dijon, salt, pepper, and chili flakes in a bowl. Coat your hands with a bit of olive oil, and roll the meat into 3 tablespoon size balls, placing them on the prepared baking sheet. Add the lemon wedges and garlic (for the dressing) to the baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the meatballs are crisp and cooked through on the inside.
    3. During the same time, toss together the sweet potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper on another baking sheet. Bake 25 minutes, until the potatoes are crispy.
    4. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, herbs, olives, and pepperoncini. Grab the meatballs from the oven, remove the lemons and garlic. Juice the lemons into the dressing. Chop the garlic and mix into the dressing. Add the feta.
    5. To assemble, add Tzakiki and lettuce to a bowl. Top with meatballs and spoon the dressing over the meatballs. Add the potatoes and any other desired toppings. Serve with additional Tzakiki (of course!).

  1. I understand that you like Greek food but please don’t give suggestions or recipes because is kseftila megali this recipe, first sweet potato doesn’t exist in Greek cuisine, not even mustard, chilli flakes or shallots in meatballs, plus, please don’t ever again add avocado to Greek menu, in my opinion this can’t be called Greek meatball with Tzaziki but just oven baked meatball with yogurt dressing.
    Please make sure to follow the recipe!

    1. Why did u feel the need to comment if you were going to throw such negativity on the recipe? If you don’t like it, keep on scrolling to find one somewhere else that you do, Troll.

    I loved this recipe! I made it the other day for my husband and I and it was so easy and flavorful. I used ground chicken for the meatballs and they were fantastic. I also opted to have sliced red onions as one of the toppings, which was great. I will definitely be making this part of our weeknight dinner rotation!

    Made this last night and my husband could barely eat because he kept saying how delicious it was. Seriously. Every 2 minutes. I didn’t add the feta and the sweet potatoes took longer than 25 minutes to roast but it was super good. Will definitely be in rotation!

    Omg so freaking flavorful/ from the meatballs to the salad and sides . Lucky I had all these crazy ingredients for my Mother’s Day tea sandwiches . I definitely had more lamb (2lb) and cooked it for 25min but this was amazing.

    I especially loved the dill and garlic tzatziki I found with the sweet potato fries . The dressing was so scrumptious. This is a definite meal for dinner rotation

  7. Hi Tieghan,

    What is the feta for? Was it just a topping or part of the Olive dressing? I wasn’t clear, I am looking forward to trying out this recipe, I bought all the ingredients.

    1. Hey Renee,
      So sorry for any confusion. Yes, you are going to add the feta to the dressing. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xx

      What an amazing combo of flavors and foods! Everything was delish! I used all three fresh herbs throughout the recipe and loved the roasted lemons & garlic for the dressing! I could eat like this all year! More like these please, Tieghan!😀

        1. Of course! Mediterranean is my fave. With the leftover meatballs, dressing & feta I made Greek pizza (cauliflower crust) with a side green salad. It was also yummy with the great flavors.

    Made this last night and the family loved it all. I used dark and white ground chicken because I’m allergic to mammal meat and it came out nice and moist. Your link to Targets plant based Tzakiki was a great find since I’m allergic to milk too!! I ate mine over the lettuce but the family ate theirs in gyro bread. Definitely will make again and double the meatballs for leftovers or to freeze.

    Loved this recipe! The meatballs were delicious and will be used a lot in the our meal planning. We used lamb…and being a sheet pan recipe seals the deal.

    1. Hey Carlana,
      Fantastic!! Thanks so much for trying this recipe, I am thrilled to hear that it was enjoyed! xxT

  11. Deeelicious! I burned the sweet potatoes a bit but that’s on me. And I used spinach mix instead of lettuce. Wonderful! Will make it again!

    This recipe was really delicious! I didn’t have ground lamb (bummer….I love it) but used ground turkey which I had in my freezer instead. I was worried it would be a little dry so I used an egg in addition to all the seasonings and made sure not to bake them too long–they were moist and perfect. The tzatziki and salad dressing made the entire meal a flavor bomb…it’s a keeper. Good one, Tieghan!

    1. Hey Kathy,
