Unique Party Foods – Greek Turkey Meatballs with Skinny Tzatziki

I have been asked to give suggestions for unique foods to take to an office party.  Now taking something healthy that is also delicious is unique in and of itself, but I went searching for some things that are really unique.  So this is the first of a series that I will be working on for a while.  Some will be my own recipes and  some (like this one) will be other’s recipes that I have tried and found to be delicious!

These Greek Turkey Meatballs are awesome!  I made them last night (they made a great dinner with a side of roasted vegetables) and DH thought they were delicious.  He, of course, did not eat them with the Skinny Tzatziki sauce, as he doesn’t eat creamy things (I know, weird huh?), but said they are great all by themselves.  I really liked the sauce on them and could have just eaten it with a spoon all by itself!  I also made sure I tried them at room temperature, since that is probably how they would be served at a party, and they were still wonderful.  Just click on the recipe names to be taken directly to the recipes.

Both recipes call for several fresh herbs, some of which I had.  I did not, however, have any fresh dill or parsley, so I just used dry herbs in their place at half the amount.  It did not seem to hurt the taste at all.  I would suggest you use some fresh herbs though and not try to substitute all of them with dry ones.  You do want some of that fresh taste to come through.  Also, I made the meatballs quite small (about 1 inch) and they made more than 17, I would say about 25-30 meatballs.

So, try these for your next office party (or any party for that matter) and then please come back here and let me know how much they were enjoyed.  I will happily pass along all comments.  And I want to give a big thanks to Gina at skinnytaste.com for allowing me to use her recipe!

What is your favorite food to take to an office party?  Let me know and maybe I can help make it healthier!

  1. I’m going to have to try this one (once I get the courage, lol!).Perhaps the creamy sauce will trick my brain into thinking it’s not turkey … but it sure looks great! How can you go wrong with fresh herbs? — ok, I’ve talked myself into it! I’m gonna gobble-gobble it up 🙂
