1 lb ground beef(or ground turkey)
1/2 onion, diced
3/4 tsp oregano
2 cups plain yogurt(I used greek and sour cream)
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried chives
2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 cucumber, seeded, peeled,chopped
Mix one cup of yogurt with seasonings(except oregano). Place half the mixture in with meat, oregano, and onions. Mix meat together and form patties, grill until done to your likeness. Take the rest of the yogurt and mix it with the cucumber and 1 cup of plain yogurt to make the sauce. Stir and place in fridge. Once burgers are done, place in pitas and top with sauce.
**There was something in the sauce that gave it quite a kick, I'm not sure if it was the garlic or the pepper(which I did cut down in this recipe). Once it was combined with the burger and bread, it was good. Now I've never had a gyro before, but these were good and different, but I can't compare them to the real taste of a gyro!
