Greek Inspired Ground Beef Gyros Recipe

My family loves attending the Greek Street Festivals and the Renaissance Fair, mainly because of the food! A favorite of everyone’s is the Greek Gyros- the flavor just explodes in your mouth.

Unfortunately lamb is a little pricey for my grocery budget so I found a way to get all the flavors of the Greek street Gyros with my Walmart budget! The family all loved these and we had not one bite leftover!
