Greek Meatball Bowls

Greek Meatball Bowls bring together the savory richness of ground pork with the fresh and tangy elements of Mediterranean cuisine. These meatballs are easy to make and versatile enough to be served in various ways, from standalone meatballs to stuffed pita pockets. The combination of spices and feta cheese gives them a unique taste that stands out, making them a worthwhile addition to your meal rotation.

I’ve been obsessed with my Greek Chicken Bowl and our Greek Chicken Protein Bowls lately. It is an easy way to enjoy a healthy lunch packed with fresh vegetables and protein, and without many carbs. It has been a staple in my diet the last 6 months or so, but lately I’ve been wishing for some more variety in my lunches beyond chicken breasts.

In a local Facebook foodie group, a lady from a neighboring town (Namaste Stayton) kept sharing these incredible photos of her Greek dinner plates, and they always have these incredible-looking meatballs on them. She shared the basics of what she includes, and I was off to the races. Make sure to go and give her a follow on her Instagram page, Namastayathomeandcook!

Of course you know I had to give these the Traeger treatment, and being one to really love a good “easy” button now and then, I also included my favorite Mediterranean Blend rub from Spiva Cooking.
