Hi Sandy,

Great question.

You can divide the ground meat into separate portions, and form them into oblong patties around the skewer. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 15-30 minutes before putting the meat on and throwing on the grill.


How do you place ground meat on the skewers???


I found this in a little kit at the milwaukee public market with all the spicescI needed, I was skeptical, but the guy told me how easy it was to make and holy cow, it tastes like gyros from a gyro joint! good job!

My family LOVES this recipe! We live close to a touristy Greek Community and can get Greek food pretty easily, but it’s so much more expensive and you have to battle traffic etc…

I have made this several times and I’m always blown away by how the meat tastes just like (but even better!) what you get from a restaurant!

I usually mix up the meat and spices and let it sit overnight in the fridge. This allows the seasonings to really infuse the meat. Delicious!!
