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; itโ€™s so worth it! Youโ€™ll find the recipe below in โ€œThe Whole Meal Suggestsโ€ section. It will not be added to the shopping list, so you will need to add these ingredients manually to your weekly list.
