When you have a craving for gyros, but don't have a good place to order from, you can simply just make your own right at home! I make two different versions and this is the easy one that's fantastic!! Simple to throw together, easy to bake and you can even cook them on the grill if preferred! Give them a try, you won't be disappointed!
