Gyro Meat Loaf with Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

Gyro Meat Loaf with Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

A spin on a classic meat loaf, I love this because I can sneak spinach in on my meat-and-potatoes family. Serve the meat loaf with Greek-style potatoes or a Greek salad. I also get to make a whole other meal the next night with the leftovers—gyros. —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
