Is it wrong to dream up imaginary errands just for an excuse to eat a delicious gyro from the stand down the street? ….because that’s what I do all too much … we must need paper towels, and oh, how about a gyro? With that, I knew there must be a better way and begin testing at home gyro recipes. I tried recipes with beef, lamb, turkey, and chicken (all of which were delicious) but perhaps my favorite was the chicken version based of one of Alton Brown’s recipes.

1

Grate the cucumber and use a paper towel or cheesecloth to squeeze out all the extra moisture. Stir it into the yogurt along with the lemon juice, lemon zest, dill, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate for 1 hour or more.

2

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

3

In a food processor, pulse together the onion and garlic until they form a paste. Remove from the food processor and press into a paper towel or cheesecloth to remove excess water.

4

Combine the ground chicken, marjoram, rosemary, onion and garlic mixture, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.

5

Form into a small meatloaf and bake on a sheet pan for 50-60 minutes until cooked through. Slice very thinly and enjoy!
