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!
Greek Meatloaf Recipe
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 large onion (grated)
- ¼ cup almond flour

- pinch salt
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 cucumber (finely chopped)
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the meatloaf. Add extra almond flour if needed to make it thick enough to form into meat balls.

- Place in the preheated oven for approximately 45-60 minutes or until cooked through.
- While cooking, mix together the ingredients for the yogurt sauce.

This looks sooooooooo good. Can’t wait to try it.
Oh this sounds AMAZING!! I can’t wait to try!!
Can’t do nuts. 🙁 What could I use instead of almond flour? Coconut? Haven’t tried it yet. Thanks for everything!!!!!
Coconut fluor works too but use about half as much…
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!
Can’t wait to try this!!
