Celeb chef James Tanner has created this great recipe with frozen meatballs. Serve with grilled pitta and homemade tzatziki.


  • 1 pack of meatballs
  • 4 large pitta breads
  • 1 bag of mixed leaf salad
  • 150g Greek yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Half a peeled and diced cucumber
  • Juice of half a lemon


  • Peel the cucumber and remove any seeds. Dice into 1cm-cubes and leave to drain on a kitchen towel.

  • Remove the meatballs from packaging and cook as guided from pack.

  • Score the pitta breads to create an envelope effect and toast for one minute, on both sides, under a hot grill.

  • Mix the drained diced cucumber with the yogurt, garlic and lemon juice then season to taste to make the tzatziki.

  • Remove the meatballs from the oven and leave to cool slightly. Then place in a bowl and crush slightly with a fork.

  • Take the pitta breads and add some of the salad leaves into the breads and separate the meatball mix between the four pittas. Finish with a spoonful of tzatziki.

Top tip for making Baked meatballs with pitta and tzatziki

Top tip: Does your pitta bread always rip and fall apart when you slice it? Cut them open with scissors instead of a knife - no more broken pittas!
