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!

    This sounds delicious! When I make standard meatloaf I add oatmeal instead of bread crumbs – I love the flavor!

    by cutting cucumber in half length-wise, removing seeds, grating and then straining, you will get a more authentic Tzatziki without being to watery. i can’t wait to make this meatloaf!
