How to make a Gyro (YEE-RO) Episode 35

Ok, I  agree I could have spent some more time making this photo look better.  However it makes up in taste.  I don’t usually eat lettuce on Gyro’s  I grew up in Chicago and usually ate at Little Diana’s because they would serve under age at the time.  Anyway a gyro plate was just meat onions and tzatziki sauce.  The only gyro I can get in Central Pennsylvania is with frozen meat.  Anyway this is pretty easy to make and taste great.  Don’t wait for your local Greek Fest and surprise your friends.  Enjoy!
