Ground Gyros Platter Deluxe Recipe

Introduction

Ground Gyros Platter Deluxe
Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray, 2007

I watched RR make this and so I checked the ratings. It's for dinner tonight, so I thought I'd enter it to check out the nutrition.
I adjusted the recipe for to be HALF the ingredients that RR called for (2 pounds of lamb was too much). I'm glad that I did, because even halved, the recipe made 8 beautiful pitas-- stuffed with cucumber, tomatoes, sprouts, peproncini, onion. It's delicious!
NOTE: I deleted the french fries with gravy for obvious reasons, on the menu.

NOTE: I will line a baking sheet with foil and rest the loaf on top of a cooling sheet so that the fat will drain-- and cleanup will be easier

Ingredients

    1/2 (10-ounce) package frozen spinach
    1 pounds ground lamb
    1 tablespoons grill seasoning, a couple of palm fulls
    1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin, divided
    1/2 tablespoon chili powder, a palm full
    1/2 tablespoon coriander, a palm full
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/3 palm full
    1 to 2 pinches ground cinnamon
    ½ - 1 cup feta crumbles (I use fat-free feta)
    1 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    FOR THE TZASIKI SAUCE
    1/2 cup Greek yogurt* (don't substitute, regular yogurt is too watery)
    1 small clove garlic, grated
    1/4 cucumber, peeled and grated
    1 lemon, juiced
    GARNISHES:
    1 vine ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
    1/4 cucumber, thinly sliced
    Hot pepper rings, sliced banana peppers, for sandwich garnish
    4 whole wheat pita pockets

    Trader Joe's carries Fage fat free Greek Yogurt that is really delicious. This is what I use.

olive oil and bake 20 minutes.
