Recipe Time: Crockpot Gyros

I made this yesterday night for the family. It had mixed reviews....1/2 the family gobbled it up and begged for more, 1/4 of the family thought it was good, but for the money spent on some of the ingrediants (since they weren't on sale) didn't see the savings of making it at home and the other 1/4 of the family wouldn't touch it - LOL. I do recommend you try it at least once though if you love gyro's like we do!!

Crockpot Gyros

1 lb ground veal
1/2 lb ground turkey
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 lemon (OR 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice)
Pita or Flat bread Rounds
Feta Cheese
Chopped lettuce
Tzatziki Sauce


In a bowl, combine ground veal and ground turkey. Add paprika, salt, pepper and oregano. Place in food processor and pulse until well condensed.

Place chopped onion and garlic at the bottom of slow cooker. Mold meat mixture into a medium sized loaf. Place loaf over the top of the onion and garlic in slow cooker.

Slice lemon in half and squeeze over the top of the meatloaf.

Cover and cook 4-5 hours on HIGH.

Slice meat and serve in pita bread with lettuce, tomato, tzatziki, and feta cheese.
