These grilled gyro meatballs taste just like a traditional gyro. In fact, I ended up eating them in pitas with tzatziki sauce. But, you could also serve them over pasta with sauce. Or on a bun as a meatball sub. Why, it’s entirely possible I even ate a few of them by themselves. I had to do ‘quality control’ you know.

There’s only one way to really mix meatball meat and that’s with your hands. So dive in and get it done! Then toss the Grilled Gyro Meatballs onto the grill. Sure, you can fry them in a pan. Or you can toss them into the oven. But the grill adds so much flavor to the meatballs.

I cooked the meatballs on my Weber Performer Charcoal Grill.
