The trick to these, like so many have discovered. Is getting the texture and spices into those delectable slices of Gyro meat. After much research, trial and error this is what I have perfected.
As this takes a good bit of time and work, I highly recommend making the meat ahead of time in enough quality to freeze several packages for future use.
When done well it tastes just like they make at our favorite Greek restaurant.Toufayan Bakery, Whole Wheat Tandoori Indian Flatbread, All Natural, Non-GMO (Whole Wheat, 3 Pack)

Lots of people around the world will be observing Easter very differently this year. It seems strange with no grandchildren running through the house. We didn’t color eggs, make easter baskets, or plan a big family Easter dinner.
The only plans we have are to make an easy attempt at “What’s for dinner?”. So here it is our Easter menu this year. We’re skipping brunch and egg hunts. Due to Coronavirus,we’ve had our fill of ham. So I’m doing a fruit salad, steamed asparagus, and my oven-roasted pork. If I’m feeling really ambitious, I’ll add Lemon Greek potatoes too. Check back for these recipes. Check out our Recipe page for more great meals to share with those you care about.
For starters I did all my shopping through pick-ups or delivery. We have health issues that would make even minor exposure very bad. We have stayed out of stores, pharmacies, and any public places. If you haven’t tried any of these it’s well worth the time.
Walmart pick up. Sadly we do not yet have delivery here yet. Fingers crossed they will soon. So we vie for limited pick up spaces. I find late nights to be a good time to sneak in. You can shop mast items to your cart before a time becomes available.
I start adding items to my cart days before I am anticipating an opening. Even a small amount in your cart can lock in your slot. Check out even if full shopping not done. I use a credit card because I know I can add items after I check out to a certain time. People loose their slots by waiting until full order is done to reserve a time and check out.
Instacart and Shipt. Here in northwest Florida we don’t have places like Whole Foods Market by Amazon. So a separate service does the shopping. Instacart gives us access to Publix. I have used them previously and was really happy when some alternatives arrived. I’m sure my experience was not the norm as I know quite a few who love their service.
We started using Shipt in addition to our Walmart pickups. This service has been phenomenal. They give us access to Winn Dixie, Target, and even pick up prescriptions from big name pharmacies.
Things are crazy so I know I need to order early. Don’t wait until you’re out. Low stock, hoarding, and traffic at stores means, what you need may not be in stock. It took me three orders to get bread and some non-perishable items like soup.
Your shopper has nothing to do with stock available for you. As these people are braving, crowds, iverworks grocery employees, and the health risks associated with a store.
I have the most flexibility in my schedule so I check on items and opportunities often. I finally found an online place that has both toilet paper and paper towels. I’ve been using Boxed for a few years now. We love the ability to purchase bulk items without the membership fees. If we had a Costco, it might be different. We haven’t tried BJ’s yet as they opened here after the pandemic started.
What ever your plans may be I hope that 2020 has taught us all to cherish the time and memories with those special to you. If you learn nothing else from Coronavirus, know that nothing in the future is guaranteed.
Have a safe, healthy, and Happy Easter. Don’t forget those CDC guidelines during egg hunts.
