I usually get the traditional gyro when I go, but there was no way I could reproduce that at home, so my mind went to work on what I wanted to use to get those tasty Greek flavors in my face.
I had already made Greek Burgers, and Greek Turkey Tacos and they are terrific. But they were quite giving me that gyros-ness I was craving.
I originally started out using lamb with these since that is the meat they use in those traditional, shave off the meat and pile it in a pita gyros I get. But I decided to go with beef.
For 1 not everyone likes lamb, and for 2 lamb is more expensive and I know y'all have been wanting recipes that are budget friendly.
Mini-me came home while I was making these and got uber excited as soon as I told her what I was making. She shares my love of gyros.....thank goodness!
The two of us ended up giggling with excitement waiting for the meatballs to cook.
Which made Kevin crazy.
Which made me happy.
That's what you get for not jumping on the gyro train with me
Lately, I have been thinking a lot about meatball sandwiches. I have been wanting to turn several of my favorite main dishes into meatball sandwiches.
Think about it.
Beef Stroganoff Meatball Sandwiches
Chicken Parm Meatball Sandwiches
Salisbury Steak Meatball sandwiches
See what I mean?
The things I ended up thinking about!
Once the meatballs were out of the oven we were ready to dive in, but picture first *sigh*
I even recruited Mini-me as a hand model
Wanna know the funny thing?
Kevin had to admit that he liked them!!
I love it when that happens!
So what do you think of my meatball obsession? What main dish would you like to see made into a meatball sandwich?
