      This is an excellent gyro recipe. I put it in the cuisinart to mix it all up, pressed it in a loaf pan and when it was done baking I drained it and put a brick wrapped in foil on top of it while it cooled (idea from Alton Brown). Sliced it and fried it up. They were delicious.

      This was excellent. I made it pretty much as stated and served it with a greek salad (Kittencal's Famous Greek Salad). We only ate half of the meatloaf, I froze the other half. We'll see how it is after the freezer! Thanks
