Meat Loaf Gyros...

I love a good gyro and instead of driving 25 miles to get one, I found this recipe on the Taste of Home web site. I wasn't unable to find any ground lamb, so I had to grind my own.

Also, with the tzatziki sauce...I thought more was needed, I added a cup of sour cream, TBSP of vinegar and squeezed out the juice of the cucumber.

•1 egg, lightly beaten
•6 garlic cloves, minced
•3 tablespoons dried oregano
•1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
•1 teaspoon pepper
•1 pound ground lamb
•1 pound ground beef

In a large bowl, combine the egg, garlic, oregano, kosher salt and pepper. Crumble lamb and beef over mixture; mix well.

Pat into an ungreased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until no pink remains and a meat thermometer reads 160°. Cool completely on a wire rack. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

•1 cup (8 ounces) plain yogurt
•1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped (Juice squeezed)
•2 tablespoons lemon juice
•2 garlic cloves, minced
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1/4 teaspoon pepper
(Added a cup of sour cream, TBSP of Vinegar)

In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

•8 whole pita breads
•3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
•onion, halved

•Brush pita breads with 1 tablespoon oil; heat on a lightly greased griddle for 1 minute on each side. Keep warm. Cut meat loaf into very thin slices. In a large skillet, fry meat loaf in remaining oil in batches until crisp.

•On each pita bread, layer the tomato, onion and meat loaf slices; top with some tzatziki sauce.
