Gyro Burgers

Serve with baked sweet potato chips-

I love gyros so much that I suffer through most crowded fairs just so I can eat this classic Greek sandwich. Now I am not equipped at home to make the shaved lamb/beef mixture, but I wanted to make a version of it at home to satisfy my cravings. I knew I could make a burger version with pita bread instead of a bun. Craving satisfied!

Ttzatziki sauce, a Greek cucumber yogurt sauce, is traditionally served with the gyro, but I have made the sauce optional, substituting plain yogurt instead. If you have the time and/or inclination, I highly recommend you make the tzatziki; it’s so worth it! You’ll find the recipe below in “The Whole Meal Suggests” section. It will not be added to the shopping list, so you will need to add these ingredients manually to your weekly list.
