Just ate this and goodness, it is pretty darn close to what you can buy from a vendor! I made the meat mixture as stated, but DID NOT blend in a blender, and the meat "loaf" was fine after baking. I let the loaf sit for 2-3 hours, then baked at 325 for just over an hour (until the internal temp jived with the meat thermometer at 77 degrees F). Baked in a water bath (pan underneath my small loaf pan had hot water in it--this was per another recipe and seemed to keep the loaf from getting a hard crust). Refrigerated the baked loaf overnight. Sliced into thin slices and heated the meat up in a frying pan with 1 tsp. of canola oil, browing the meat.
Served with grilled pita bread (did this in a separate frying pan), tzaziki sauce, and a mixture of chopped lettuce, red onion, tomato chunks, and chopped cucumber slices. Sprinkled a little spice blend on top of the prepared gyro (1 tsp. paprika, 1/2 tsp. garlic salt, 1/2 tsp cumin, and 1/2 tsp. sage). Added some feta, then rolled the gyro up! So YUMMY!!!
The tzaziki sauce I used is from the Easy Chicken Gyro recipe on this site (by KarenCanCook), which was awesome!
