First up, these little meatballs are oven baked – so there’s no standing around waiting for them to cook in the frying pan. Simply pop them in the oven and let them do their thing! Ooh and speaking of cooking the meatballs, let me tell you about a really clever little hack I have. Instead of putting your meatballs on a flat baking tray, use a lightly greased mini-muffin tin. This way they’ll stay separated from each other, wont roll around or lose their shape. Clever, right!?

Now if you’re anything like me, dinners need to be super quick, easy, yummy and kid/toddler-friendly. And if it’s a weeknight, they need to be even quicker and easier than ever. And soooo…. I bring you these delicious Greek Lamb Meatball Pitas (which definitely tick ALL those boxes!).

The yummy pita breads are topped with San Remo’s 60 second microwave couscous (because we all know that microwaves are the ultimate when it comes to quick and easy!). I used the cous cous with quinoa variety for these bad boys, but there’s also a vegetable cous cous version which would be just as delicious. And really – 60 seconds in the microwave…. done! You can’t beat that for ease.

Ooh and then comes the really fun part – adding ALL of the delicious toppings. Think cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and of course, feta. Life just wouldn’t be complete without feta. Finally, pop those oven baked greek lamb meatballs on top and add a huge dollop of tzatziki. YUM!

PS. If you have any leftover meatballs (…Really?? Really?? Is that even possible!?), then simply pop them into an airtight container or ziplock bag once they’ve cooled and freeze for up to 1 month.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 serves

Ingredients

  • 500 g lamb mince
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (125g) breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbs oregano

  • tzatziki dip, to serve

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius (fan-forced). Grease a 24 hole mini muffin tin with olive oil spray and set aside (if you don't have a mini muffin tray you can use a flat baking tray).

  3. Roll into balls and place into the prepared tin (one meatball in each mini muffin hole). 

  4. Cook for 15 minutes or until cooked through. 

  5. Meanwhile, place the San Remo microwave couscous in the microwave for 60 seconds. 

  6. To serve, place the pita breads onto 4 serving plates. Top with the couscous, red onion, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, meatballs, feta and tzatziki dip. 

Recipe Notes

It's not essential to use a mini muffin tin to cook the meatballs but it's a handy way to keep them separated and in shape.

  1. Yum! That looks delicious! I love the idea of baking the meatballs in a mini muffin tin – genius! In the unlikely event of having any “leftover” meatballs, I bet they’d go great in a lunch box!
