These were delicious...the sauce makes it a nice change from traditional meat loaves. Unlike others, I did not find the feta sauce too tart. I did use bottled lemon juice and left out the red pepper. Also did not use muffin pan, but made into large flattish balls -and broiled in a pie plate. The dressing for the salad, however, we did not like...would next time make a more traditional oil-and-vinegar dressing. We served with wild rice and dolmathes (stuffed grape leaves) on the side.

The meat loaves themselves were ok, different then what we are used to having, but we all enjoyed the lamb. Not so much the sauce; there didn't seem to be much taste to it. I served it with a green salad and baked potatoes.

This was DELICIOUS!! I made them into burgers and cooked them on the grill. They tasted very good and the sauce complimented the burgers perfectly. It was slightly different than the traditional tzatziki sauce.

A hit! I only used ground sirloin (it will be even better with the lamb). Was generous with the garlic, otherwise except for the addition of a teaspoon of dijon mustard to the vinaigrette, and making it into a loaf instead of the cups, I made it as directed and it was perfect. Had roasted garlic couscous as a side. Next time will go for the pita suggestion instead and slice up a tomato. The feta yogurt sauce is awesome. Will use this in other recipes as well.
