Gyros made easy and lighter with turkey! You are going to love these turkey gyros.
I’ve teamed up with Butterball for this week’s recipe: Turkey Gyros!
I love to eat a good gyro when I’m out, but did you know it’s pretty easy to make them at home? This recipe has everything you love about gyros including turkey which is always a leaner option.
To start, I marinated Butterball turkey breast cuts in a delicious gyro marinade overnight. If you don’t have the time to marinate over night, 4 hours in the fridge will work also.
In a large non stick skillet, cook the turkey on medium high to release most the moisture of the marinade and cook the turkey. The turkey will be fully cooked when it starts to brown in the pan.
Have all the ingredients ready to go to start assembly. You’ll need the cooked turkey, diced red onion, sliced fresh garden tomatoes, greek style pita bread and the Tzatziki Sauce.
Gyros are traditionally made with lamb, beef, or pork, but we are making them with turkey. Add tomatoes, onion, and a yogurt sauce on pita bread for a delicious sandwich.
FOR THE TURKEY MARINADE
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 3 tablespoons plain yogurt
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- salt and pepper
- 4 Butterball turkey breast cuts
- 6 Pita Bread
- 2 ripe tomatoes sliced
- 1/2 cup red onion diced
FOR THE TZATZIKI Sauce:
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- ¾ cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- lemon juice just a squeeze
- 1 large cucumber peeled, seeded and finely chopped
- 1 green onion finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
- salt and pepper to taste
Stir marinade ingredients together; cover the turkey for at least 4 hours in the fridge, or preferably overnight.
Cook turkey in a skillet on medium heat for 7-10 minutes or until done.
Warm pitas in the microwave. Fill the warm pitas with the cooked sliced turkey.
Top with turkey, tzatziki sauce, diced tomatoes and onions.
