I am a very big fan of gyros and I must say that I was very pleased with the recipe. I am originally from a city where ethnic foods were very easy to come by, but my career forced me to move to a very small town to where american and mexican food make up the majority. So I started to browse this site and actually just happened to stumble across the recipe and I had to try it. As with any recipe, you will adjust it according to your taste. Personally, I cannot stand pita pockets and it takes away from the traditional taste of the gyro. Flat pita bread, brushed with oil and heated in a frying pan will definitely make a difference in the taste. You can normally find these in the grocery store or Walmart. I also like to use sour cream instead of yogurt when making the sauce. Also like the other postings before, I actually didn''t care for the patties. When I made the patties, I actually cut them in the pan with the spatula into a few strips. But, I thank the person who posted this recipe. I do really like it and it tastes really good making them from scratch like this. And now I can have gyros whenever I want. Thanks!
