We made the loaf and sauce exactly as written... and had it as gyros. The loaf has great flavor, acccepting that the texture in your gyros will be different! For the sauce, I used yogurt, it has good flavor, but we didn't care for the texture of grated cucumbers... I'd make this again but dice the cucumbers in the sauce. Overall easy to prepare, excellent step by step directions, flavorful and one I will likely repeat! TY for posting it!
