Gyro meat (I use ground turkey instead of lamb) My boys love this in wraps or just by itself.  So tasty!

Yes, you can make authentic gyros at home - the texture and flavor of this meat is as good as you get in a good Greek restaurant, without the traditional rotating spit.. but this is just the recipe and technique for making the meat, for Im assuming you know the drill on making the classic gyro sandwich - stuff the meat in a grilled pita with sliced tomatoes, onions and tzaziki sauce.. Enjoy!

Traditional Gyro Meat-- This one can be made in the oven, and although it is in loaf form, you could get thinner slices by using an electric knife.  Will be trying this one soon!    Allrecipes.com

This is a good version of gyro meat. I like to mix in a little ground beef with the lamb. Cooking times are approximate and include resting times. There are a lot of steps but it is easier than it looks. And the end result is worth it.
