How Long Is This Gonna Take:
About 30-45 minutes
But Is It Good For Me:
Makes 4 gyros, 9 points+ each
What You'll Need:
For the Cucumber (Tzatziki) Sauce:
Should be made beforehand
For the Gyros:
What To Do:
1. For sauce, prepared about 1 hour before you plan to eat. Mix all sauce ingredients together and chill for 1 hour.
2. For gyros, preheat oven to 500F. In a bowl, mix turkey, onion, garlic, parsley, thyme, and S&P. In a large skillet (make sure its one you can also use in the oven!), heat EVOO on medium heat. While oil heats up, form turkey mixture into 4 thin loaves, about 1/4 inch thick.
3. Cook loaves until brown, about 1-2 minutes on each side. Then place skillet into the oven and bake for 6-8 minutes. (I used a meat thermometer to ensure the loaves were completed cooked).
4. Right before the loaves come out of the oven, microwave pitas for about 15-20 seconds. Remove turkey loaves from the oven and thinly slice (I recommend a serrated knife). Assemble your gyro and top with cucumber sauce.
