Crockpot Gyros

This is one of my all time favorite recipes...

First you need to make your meat. I prefer the crockpot but you can also do it like meatloaf.
For every 1 lb of hamburger you add 2 to 3 tsp. of greek seasonings.
If doing crockpot just shape to fit in bottom without touching sides. Cook for 4 to 5 hours on low.
In the oven in a pan for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. 350 degrees.

Next You need to chop..... Tomatoes, lettuce, onions (preferably purple), feta cheese
Then you need to make some sauce...
Homemade Cucumber Yogurt Sauce
1 cup yogurt
1/2 cucumber finely shredded (the finer the better)
1 tsp. dill weed (dry) 1 Tbsp. dill weed fresh
2 tsp. Sugar
1 clove garlic pressed
1/3 tsp. salt

Mix all together and serve.

And last you need pita bread. Shown is fluffy greek style pita from Sam's club. But my favorite is Joseph's pita. 

I featured it a long time ago. I am happy to say it is again available at Walmart super centers. Here is there website.
It is soft and flexible and jam packed with nutrition.

Greek Lemon Potatoes coming soon!!!!!


  1. This is one of my favorite meals--made from your recipe. I don't remember the options to make the meat like meatloaf or in the crockpot, though. It seems both would be easier and less mess than frying individual portions. I think this is going on the menu for next week.

  2. I am having a hard time writing a comment. This looks SO fantastic though. WOW. I could go for a lunch like this! Hope you are having a happy summer week!

  3. These look delicious! I love greek food and wish the my husband liked it. The fried feta looks too good!
