This year the gyros couldn’t come fast enough, so I decided to try my hand at making some. While the endeavor turned into a whole-afternoon affair, the results were well worth it! Here are some shots of the process, and you can get the very excellent recipe I followed here (here’s the recipe for homemade flatbread too).
First thing’s first: hand cut french fries:
Delicious! I suggest cooking these first so you can snack on them for the remainder of the meal-prep!
Now for that meat. This was twice-baked lamb, bacon, onion, and seasonings.
Yum! (These strips are great for snacking too)
And finally, the flatbread. This was tricky. Lots of careful tonging:
Some re-purposed field equipment – always important to keep around the kitchen!
And a beautiful stack of flatbread, ready to get filled!
Final step: cut the tomatoes and onions – nice big chunks! And don’t forget the Tzatziki!
Yum. Almost like the real thing… Good enough to hold me over for another month at least.
