Sorry. These should be called "Yogurt-Ranch Burgers," since they have little to do with actual gyros. If you want to make a burger that will be like a gyro, use ground lamb mixed with onion, garlic, salt, marjoram, rosemary, and pepper.

We didn't like it. It wasn't authentic enough. Next time I'll use ground lamb and instead of yogurt & ranch dressing I'll use one of the Tzatziki sauce recipes from here.

Tasted delicious! I think next time I will just fry the meat and use as filling rather than make into burger patties- they fell apart for me! The taste was fabulous though!
