Yummy! Made a quick tzatziki instead of just the sourcream with yogurt, cukes, onion, and garlic and put it on whole wheat kaisers instead with some tomato! Oh, and my BBQ decided this was the night to quit, so I just cooked them in my electric fryng pan... made for PAC Fall '09
These are great!! They taste like a gyro only with turkey! I like the quick tzatziki from the sour cream and cucumbers! I used flatbread so I could really stuff these with veggies. The only thing I would do next time is add some onions and tomatoes!! Thanks for the recipe!!
These were incredibly tasty! I served with pita bread (#68128) and Yogurt Quick Sauce (#65128). This was a all-around family favorite! Note: I did not add the olives.
