this is delicious and a welcome change from plain old burgers. i used 2 1/2 lbs of beef, and added extra spices. i made the salad dressing but served the salad with the burgers, without the 2 hour marinating time. i also served lettuce, sliced red onion, and tzaziki sauce on the side along with baked potato fries. delicious and a kid pleaser too!

The Best. I used a combination of 1 lb Ground Beef and 1 lb. Ground Lamb. And I doubled the spices, added in 1 tsp of cumin (my fav spice) , let marrinate 3 hours and it made 12 patties which i cut each pattie in to slices before adding to the flat bread... perfect for lunch and dinner for the day. It was an amazing combination and made the best Gyros. Topped off with fresh tomatos, romaine lettuce, onions, Kalmata olives and feta cheese for a perfect tasting homemade gyro, even better than the Medditeranean restaurant we have locally. And I made my own tzatziki sauce using sour cream, garlic, olive oil, S & P to taste, cucumber seeded then shredded. Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely make this again.

It was pretty good. My husband is middle eastern so we eat heavily spiced food all the time, so this i would at least double the seasoning. We don't like a lot of salt in things, but this we added a little extra. We ate them elongated(cooked all the way through) with lamb and sirloin beef. They turned out great and we ate them oh whole wheat naan with home-made tzatziki sauce(non fat yogurt, cucumber, salt, pepper, dill, garlic, onion powder) The burgers came out Very juicy. we will be making them again

My family loved these! I served them on whole meal burger buns and they were enourmous to say the least. I only marinated mine for 40 minutes (I forgot to do it earlier in the day). Next time I will marinate for much longer as I think the flavours would be even more wonderful. thanks for posting!

WOW! These were marvelous! I made them on the grill, per directions. Only thing I did was increase the recipe to feed my son's group of teenage boys. Perfect combination of spice and the texture of the meat was just like that of a Gyro! Very nice, and easy. Thanks so much Heather !

Excellent burger recipe! I shaped into oblong patties and put in hot dog rolls. Made just like the instructions say and wow, they were good! Thanks Heather for another great burger recipe that we really enjoyed! Mike
