I love Greek food 🇬🇷 after all, I’m 1/2 Greek! To get our Greek food fix in, I wanted to make a simple meal. Now with this recipe, you can be Greek too!
I’ve made Greek meatballs before using ground lamb and ground beef, but this time I wanted to use ground sausage. Instead of meatballs, I browned up the sausage with the same ingredients I use for my meatballs and everything tasted delicious. For this recipe, you can use ground beef, ground lamb, ground turkey or ground sausage. For our vegetarian friends, you can make this with just veggies if you like! I like veggie pitas too 😋
For our recipe I also sautéed and put veggies on top of the sausage. When you are sautéing your veggies, make sure to season them with salt and pepper. If you are making this recipe without meat, you can use the same seasonings I use for my meat to season up your veggies. I chopped up red onion and red bell pepper, but you can also use green or orange bell pepper. You can also cook up some zucchini or yellow squash, they just take longer to cook in a pan on the stove.
For the Greek seasoning I use, the brand I buy is called Cavender’s. Here’s their website! https://greekseasoning.com/
I top our sausage pitas with homemade tzatziki sauce, the sautéed veggies, some cherry tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese. As a side, I make my famous Turmeric Yellow Rice. I’ll include recipes for the tzatziki sauce, sausage pitas and yellow rice below. I made the tzatziki sauce first, then put it in the fridge while I cooked everything. The sauce is made with cucumber and either plain Greek yogurt or sour cream.
Here is my tzatziki sauce recipe with the pics below! Yellow rice recipe will be below that. I make my yellow rice in our rice cooker.
