A note about serious food allergies

Call it gee-row, guy-row, or year-row… we pronounce it with three syllables: “delicious.” Here, the Grecian standard is in meatball form, flavored with shallot and cumin. All the best fixin' (or fixings… we don't tell you how to pronounce and we don't tell you how to spell) are here: sliced shallots for a kick, cucumber to cool it down, and a tzatziki sauce you'll make yourself. Feta fries finish out a meal that that is filled with flavor, flavour, or Γεύση.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 3 Mixing Bowls
  • 1 Box Grater
  • 1 Medium Oven-Safe Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve and peel shallot. Slice half the shallot into thin strips and finely mince other half. Place shallot strips in a mixing bowl and cover with cold water. Set aside 20 minutes. Soaking shallots tames their sharp flavor. While shallot sits, cut potato into eight wedges. Grate one cucumber on large holes of grater. Trim other cucumber and cut into ¼" rounds on an angle. Mince dill, leaves and stems.

  • Step 2 - Roast the Potato

    Roast the Potato

    Place potato wedges on prepared baking sheet and add 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Use your hands to coat potato and spread into a single layer. Roast until tender and easily pierced, 18-22 minutes, flipping wedges once after 10 minutes. While potatoes cook, make gyro mix.

  • Step 3 - Make the Gryo Mix

    Make the Gryo Mix

    Thoroughly combine beef, panko, half the minced shallot (reserve remaining for tzatziki), 1 Tbsp. yogurt (reserve remaining for tzatziki), cumin, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in another mixing bowl.

  • Step 4 - Form Gyro Meatballs and Make Tzatziki

    Form Gyro Meatballs and Make Tzatziki

    Form gyro mix into six golf ball-sized meatballs. Place a medium oven-safe pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add meatballs to hot pan and cook until browned, 6-8 minutes. Place pan in oven and bake until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-10 minutes. While meatballs bake, mix remaining yogurt, grated cucumber, remaining minced shallot, dill, and a pinch of pepper in another mixing bowl.

  • Step 5 - Toast the Flatbreads

    Toast the Flatbreads

    Place flatbreads directly on oven rack and toast until warmed, 3-5 minutes.

  • Step 6 - Finish the Dish

    Finish the Dish

    Spread a dollop of tzatziki sauce on flatbread. Serve remaining sauce on side for dipping. Place meatballs, cucumber rounds, and shallot slices in flatbread. Garnish fries with feta. Place sandwich and fries on a plate.
