Gyro Fries

Jane Bruce

The combination of flavorful lamb meat, tzatziki sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, pepperoncini, and maybe a few olives if you’re in the mood, cannot be beat. Wrapped in a pita, it’s the ultimate cheers to Greece. Next time you’re craving the sandwich, though, skip the pita and try tossing those combinations with fries, instead.

Directions

For the gyro meat

Combine all of the ingredients together in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Let sit for at least 2 hours to let the flavors blend together.

Heat the oil in a large skillet to medium-high. Add the meat mixture and sauté, breaking it up with your spoon as you go, until the meat is cooked through. Set aside.

For the gyro fries

In a small bowl, toss the gyro meat and the fries together. Add the gyro-fry mixture to a fry boat or shallow boat and top with the romaine lettuce, tomatoes, onion, pepperoncini, and olives. Finish with the desired amount of tzatziki sauce.
