If you're a sandwich lover in the mood for something a little different, try putting together your own Gyro.

Ingredients

Tzatziki Sauce:

1/2
cup finely chopped cucumber
8
oz. plain Greek yogurt (you can substitute plain yogurt)
2
cloves garlic – minced
1 1/2
tablespoon lemon juice
1/2
teaspoon black pepper
1
teaspoon salt
1
teaspoon sugar
2
teaspoons dill

Gyro Meat:

1
pound ground lamb, pork, beef or chicken
1/2
cup minced onion
4
cloves garlic - minced
1
teaspoon black pepper
1
teaspoon dried oregano
1/2
teaspoon cumin

Sandwich:

4
6” pita bread rounds
1
small onion, sliced thin
1
large tomato, diced

Directions

  • 1 Traditional Gyros are made from a meat loaf slowly roasted and thinly sliced. If you're short on time, make a close approximation by using thin, oblong burger patties. If you find you love Gyros, you can dive in and make a meat loaf next time.
  • 2 Start by making your Tzatziki sauce a few hours (or days) ahead of time. 1) Chop the cucumber and pat it dry with a few paper towels. Tzatziki should have a nice thick, creamy texture when done, so you want to drain any excess water from the cucumber. 2) Check the yogurt—drain off any standing liquid. Add the yogurt to your cucumber. 3) Add the remaining ingredients to the cucumber and yogurt, stir and refrigerate for a few hours.
  • 3 Next, make your Gyro meat patties. 1) Combine all of the meat ingredients in a bowl—mix well. 2) Form four patties that are oblong and relatively thin—about 5-6” long, a few inches wide and ½” thick. Grill or broil the patties to your desired doneness.
  • 4 Finally, put it all together. 1) Take a pita round and put a Gyro patty on it. 2) Add thin sliced onion and tomato. 3) Top it off with Tzatziki sauce. 4) Enjoy!
