Try this Gyro Sandwiches recipe, or contribute your own. "Ground beef" and "Lunch" are two of the tags cooks chose for Gyro Sandwiches."Very good!
I made a few variations. First, I used Greek Yogurt instead of plain (American) yogurt. Greek yogurt is available in many larger markets, and is generally thicker (the consistency of sour cream) and richer.
I also didn't broil it -- I instead used a rotisserie attachment on our grill to make the gyros loaf. It took about 1 1/2 hours to cook all the way, up to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. (I put the loaf into the fridge, wrapped in plastic, before putting it on the rotisserie.)" - stevemur
