I love Gyros, but feel the meat part can be complicated! By using meatballs, Greek seasoning and air-frying them - it makes it so much easier! — Donna-Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts

Ingredients

  • 12 frozen fully cooked meatballs, such as beef or homestyle
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Greek seasoning, divided
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon snipped fresh dill
  • 4 whole pita breads, warmed
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Lemon wedge, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat air fryer to 320°. Place meatballs in greased air fryer. Cook until browned, 8-10 minutes. Remove to a cutting board; cool slightly. Cut meatballs in half; toss with 1 tablespoon oil and 1 teaspoon Greek seasoning. Return to air fryer. Cook 2 minutes longer. Remove and keep warm.
  2. In a small bowl, combine tomatoes, red onion and garlic. Peel cucumber; chop half and add to tomato mixture. Remove seeds and grate remaining half of cucumber; place in another small bowl. Stir in yogurt, lemon juice, dill, remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon Greek seasoning.
  3. Serve meatballs in pita breads with yogurt sauce, tomato mixture, and feta cheese. If desired, top with additional fresh dill and serve with lemon wedges.
