  • Ready In

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg whites, parsley, water garlic, cumin, salt and pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into sixteen 1-1/4-inch meatballs.
  2. Thread meatballs onto four 10-inch skewers. Place on rack in broiler pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake in 400 degrees F oven 18 to 20 minutes.
  3. Remove meatballs from skewers. Serve in flatbreads. Garnish with Toppings, as desired.


  • Cook's Tip:¬†Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  • Cook's Tip:¬†For easy cleanup, line bottom of broiler pan (not rack) with aluminum foil before baking meatballs.
  • This recipe is an excellent source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, iron, selenium and zinc; and a good source of choline.

Meatballs were ok but definitely need to find a better tzatziki sauce recipe.

I used 80/20 meat and the whole eggs, and added a quarter cup of Sriracha sauce and some chili flakes (we like it spicy). Made a long hot-dog shaped meatball on skewers to put it in lavash and p...
