Crockpot Gyros

For the gyro meat:

--1/2 pound ground lamb

--1/2 pound ground turkey

--2 t oregano

--1 t paprika

--1/2 chopped onion

--3 cloves minced garlic

--juice from 1 lemon

For the Tzatziki sauce:

--1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped

--1 cup plain non fat yogurt

--1 T olive oil

--3 cloves minced garlic

--2 T chopped fresh mint

--juice from 1 lemon

--pita bread (but we used corn tortillas)



--feta cheese

Chop up the onion, and 3 cloves of garlic, and put them in the bottom of your crockpot. In a small mixing bowl, combine the two kinds of ground meat with the paprika and oregano.
Make a  meatloaf with your hands. Put the meatloaf log on top of the chopped onion and garlic in your crockpot. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the top of the meat.
Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours, or on HIGH for about 2.
While you are waiting for the meat to cook, make the Tzatziki sauce and put it in the fridge.
Remove the meat from the crockpot and slice it thinly on a cutting board.
Serve it with pitas and the Tzatziki sauce and whatever toppings you have chosen.
