I know what your thinking…another savory recipe. I promise we will be back to butter and sugar on Sunday. But first I had to share with your one of our favorite family meals.
Everywhere you look in Europe there are Turkish Kabob Shops, seriously a dime a dozen. Turkish Kabobs are very similar to Greek Gyro Sandwiches. Personally, I prefer the Turkish version because they add a very spicy red sauce.
When we used to live in Switzerland, our “pizza” night would be to grab a Kabob at the neighborhood shop. When we came back to the States’ we really really missed these sandwiches. It wasn’t until two years later that I went to lunch with a friend at a Greek Restaurant and realized that the two were practically the same! My husband was so excited that we returned there for dinner that night.
Through the years, our family has grown and we seem to always have a toddler, making it impossible to eat out. So I figured out how to make it at home, and has been a monthly staple ever since. It really is an easy meal to make, and it is healthy!
I like my Gyro meat a bit dry, so I remove the excess oil during cooking about every 15 minutes. This also removes excess calories! Any sort of flat bread or pita bread works with these sandwiches. I usually make my own, cause it is really easy. This is a good recipe, but OMIT the sugar!
