This. Was. DELICIOUS! I don't like traditional gyros so I was cautiously hopeful about the recipe but I was pleasantly surprised! It really is just a twist on a burger so don't expect a traditional gyro, but for what it was, it was great. We did the ground beef with a little extra of the seasoning (which I found pretty easily at my local chain grocery store), then served on pita bread with lettuce, thinly sliced red onion, cucumber, tomato, tahini salad dressing (from the grocery store as well), black olives, and crumbled feta cheese. Like I said, amazing!!
