Gyros Plate

Gyro_Plate_Sauce-002What You Need

The Gyros Plate is arranged somewhat differently depending on who is making it, but the ingredients are still basically the same as the Gyros Sandwhich. Here are two spins on the same theme.

 

Directions

1. Brush bread lightly with oil on both sides and grill until soft. Cut into quarters.

2. Place one serving of french fries down the center of the plate.

3. Place a good portion of gyros meat (about 8 oz.) atop bed of french fries.

4. Place quartered pita bread on one side of plate; tomatoes, onions, olives on the other.

5. Add a few small chunks of Feta around the plate, top meat with a healthy dollop of Tzatziki.

6. Optional: Garnish with small lemon wedges, cucumber, and parsley if desired.

Alternate Preparation

1. Brush bread lightly with oil on both sides and grill until soft. Do not cut.

2. Place whole pita in the middle of the plate.

3. Place a good portion of gyros meat (about 8 oz.) atop pita.

4. Place one serving of french-fries alongside meat, keeping fries to one side of plate.

5. Place tomatoes, onions, and olives on remaining side.

6. Add a few small chunks of Feta around the plate, top meat with a healthy dollop of Tzatziki.

7. Optional: Garnish with small lemon wedges, cucumber, and parsley if desired.

 

Tips

  • Use flat pita bread and not pocket bread. It will be better for folding and dipping.
  • Again, don't skimp, especially with the gyros plate. If someone is ordering the gyros plate, it's probably for dinner and they will be expecting more than a sandwich.
  • Dress it up. Take just a little extra time to arrange the food so it is visually appealing to your customers. That first glance at your gyros plate should wow them, the food will do the rest.
  • Get creative. Try different arrangements for plate coverage and customer appeal. Remember, the meat is the star here so make sure it gets top billing.
