My name is Steph, and I have an addiction to Greek and Mediterranean flavors for my meal prep.

Exhibit A on the blog:

I also think plain white rice can get a bit boring, so this rice is fancied up a bit to really compliment the Greek flavors. 

Hi oregano lemon rice – you delicious little lemony side dish.

This meal prep is well rounded too. It has all the major macro groups covered (if that is your jam).

  • Brown Basmati rice – carb
  • Turkey Meatballs  – protein
  • Roasted Peppers – veggies 
  • Feta (and olives) – fat

What is the most efficient way to prep Sheet Pan Greek Meatball meal prep?

First get your rice started. While the rice cooks, you can get the rest of the meal ready. 

I use my Instant Pot to cook my rice while I prep so I don’t need to worry about anything boiling over. 

To make the brown basmati rice in the Instant Pot:

  • It is 1:1.25 ratio of rice to water (or broth)
  • Set the pressure cooker to high pressure for 22 minutes and do a 10 minute natural release. 

Other wise, follow the directions on the package for cook times for your specific rice. 

While the rice cooks, get your meatballs and veggies going on a sheet pan.

The beauty of this prep is that your meatballs and your veggies cook on the same pan, at the same time (as long as you are using fresh, not frozen meatballs).

Can I use frozen meatballs?

Skip the frozen plain meatballs for this one! Trust me.  You want to take the extra 10 minutes and make these meatballs from scratch. 

Better yet, make double the meatballs and freeze them raw for the next time you make this! 

How to freeze meatballs post is right here!

Can Greek Meatball be frozen?

No. Don’t freeze this. The veggies won’t reheat well, and the meatballs will be dried out. 

Which containers did you use for this meal prep?

    Love this for lunches! We make these with beyond meat – usually the spicy Italian sausages or whatever is on sale and then follow the recipe you have here to make the “meat”balls 🙂
