Greek Meatloaf Recipe

Greek meatloaf recipe

This Greek inspired meatloaf reminds me of the Gyro meat I often ate during my time in Europe. It uses flavors such as lemon, fennel, and mint to make a fragrant and delicious meatloaf. You can also make a meatball version that cooks more quickly and makes a wonderful appetizer.

I pair this meatloaf with a Greek yogurt cucumber sauce and a salad with fennel greens for a full Greek inspired meal. Now to eventually actually make it to Greece one day!
