Directions

# In a large bowl, combine the egg, garlic, oregano, kosher salt and pepper. Crumble lamb and beef over mixture; mix well.

# Pat into an ungreased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350� for 60-70 minutes or until no pink remains and a meat thermometer reads 160�. Cool completely on a wire rack. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

# Brush pita breads with 1 tablespoon oil; heat on a lightly greased griddle for 1 minute on each side. Keep warm. Cut meat loaf into very thin slices. In a large skillet, fry meat loaf in remaining oil in batches until crisp.

# On pita bread, layer tomato, onion and meat loaf slices; top with some tzatziki sauce, if you'd like. Carefully fold pitas in half. Serve with more sauce. Yield: 8 servings.

I find that there is too much oregano in this recipe so I substitute 1 1/2 Tablespoons of it with other spices used in Mediterranean dishes such as rosemary, lemon pepper, etc.
