Directions

Makes 4 servings.


Preheat your oven to 500 degrees.


In a mixing bowl combine ingredients for the gyro meat mixture. Stir vigorously....and I mean vigorously for about one minute until combine. This helps the meat proteins combine which makes it easy to slice thinly just like the real gyros!!!


In a non-stick oven proof skillet heat the olive oil on med-high heat. While the olive is heating up - take the meat mixture and form four individual mini rectangular meatloafs. About 1/4 thick. Saute' them for about 2-3 minutes on each side and then finish them in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes until the inside is cooked through (about 165 degrees).


While the loaves are cooking combine the ingredients for your tzatziki sauce in a small bowl. (This could be done first in order to let the flavors combine a bit longer. Depending on how much sauce you like on your gyro this makes plenty of sauce for another 4 servings if desired)


When the mini loaves are cooked through slice each loaf lengthwise and serve inside a whole wheat pita with 1-2 T of the tzatzicki sauce along with cucumber and tomatoe rounds.
