I’ll never forget the first time I ate Greek food. I was at an art and culture festival in Birmingham, Alabama. My roommate at the time, Amy and I were walking from food vendor to food vendor, sampling cuisines from different cultures. When we reached the Greek booth, I immediately was drawn to the Lamb Souvlaki, big, juicy chunks of lamb, roasted to perfection, served on a pita, and topped with Tzatziki sauce. After my first bite, I was in love. From that moment on, I would seek out those same flavors in some of the foods I cooked at home. That’s where these delicious AIP Paleo Greek Inspired Meatballs come in.
In addition to Greek food, I love meatballs. Why, you ask? Well, because they pair well with lots of foods, you can batch cook them, they freeze well, and they’re handy to have around when you need something quick. When I wanted to make my batch meatballs for the week, I decided to play with Greek flavors. I ended up with these flavorful, juicy AIP Paleo Greek Inspired Meatballs.
Now, I love combining recipes from other wonderful AIP bloggers, with my own, to create tasty meals. Tonight, I served my AIP Paleo Greek Inspired Meatballs wrapped in Alaena from Grazed and Enthused‘s AIP Sweet Potato Pita Bread. You can find the recipe here. Then, I spooned on Garlic & Artichoke Hummus by Rachael from Meatified. The recipe is here. You have got to try these two ladies’ recipes. I’m not kidding y’all! The pita bread and hummus were the perfect additions to the meatballs. It was a real AIP Greek feast!
I hope you’ll enjoy these AIP Paleo Greek Inspired Meatballs. Remember, if you make them, tag me in any photos you share on social media. I love seeing everyone’s dishes.
As always, I wish you all good health and good food!
