    In large bowl, mix Meatball ingredients until well combined. Using rounded tablespoon measure, shape 20 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs; place in pan. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until no longer pink in center (at least 165°F).

    Meanwhile, add yoghurt to small bowl. Place cucumber in center of paper towel, and gently squeeze to remove water. Add cucumber, dill weed, lemon juice and salt to yoghurt; stir to combine. Refrigerate sauce until ready to serve with meatballs.
  • Panko bread crumbs and eggs work together to help the meatball hold its shape while maintaining moist and soft texture.

  • Timesaver: Use bottled tzatziki style dressing instead of making the dipping sauce.
