Mom Meals: 10 Minute Gyros | Anchors Aweigh


Mom Meals: 10 Minute Gyros

I am excited to announce a new mini series on this blog called Mom Meals! I have always loved cooking and took pride on serving my husband a fresh, warm meal most nights. Remember that Recipes tab of mine filled with yummy recipes? As much as I still want to do that, being a mom to a toddler makes that fairly difficult. I do as much meal prep as I can during nap time, but all too often I am caught grabbing that frozen pizza from the freezer at 6 PM because I have a toddler clinging to me and no other choice. 

I started this series as a way to share shortcuts to my favorite meals that I have easily been able to apply to my momtastic lifestyle. Obviously it's not just moms that can benefit from quick weeknight meals: everyone is busy, so I hope these 10 minute shortcuts will help you as much as they have helped me!

This first Mom Meal is for gyros. It's fresh, healthy, delicious, and can be on the table in 10 minutes. The original recipe took me 30-40 minutes, but my simplified version takes me 10 and is really just as tasty. 

Before we get started, here are the changes I made:

1. I bought Tzatziki sauce from the store instead of making my own 
2. I used frozen meatballs rather than making them from scratch
3. I chopped my veggies ahead of time


Naan (located near the bakery)
Frozen turkey meatballs
Tzatziki sauce
Diced tomatoes
Sliced red onion
Diced cucumber


1. Bake your meatballs in the oven according to the package instructions. If you're really in a pinch, just stick them in the microwave and heat them that way. 
2. Lightly toast your naan in the toaster just to get it warm. 
3. Chop your tomatoes, red onion, and cucumber. 
4. Assemble your gyros. Spread Tzatziki across a piece of Naan, add meatballs, and top with veggies. 

Serve and enjoy! We love gyros and make this healthy, quick version often around here!
