This is a recipe given to me by a co-worker. It mimics very well the donairs that are served in this part of the country. I like this recipe because it doesn't have a lot of preservatives in it. I usually use lean hamburger when I make it. I serve it with the Donair Sauce receipe that I have also posted.
- 2 lbs hamburger
- 1 teaspoon flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄2 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Blend all the ingredients in a bowl.
- Shape in a log.
- Bake at 350oF for 1 hour or until done.
- Serve by slicing meat, and placing on a heated pita bread with Donair Sauce and your choice of vegetables such as diced tomatoes, onions, or lettuce.
I'm a fellow New-Brunswicker as well, and have been searching for years for any recipe that even comes close to those of Greco-Donair in N.B. Finally a taste of home. Outstanding and thank you!
As a full blooded New Brunswicker, born and raised, now living in Atlanta, GA since 1999, I can appreciate this and the sauce recipes... when I tried to explain to people down here what a Donair was, and how amazing they taste, everyone looked at me like I was nuts! Well now they can see what I have been talking about for so long! THANKS!!!!
Excellent recipe. I will suggest to cool the loaf before slicing. I have tried to rate this recipe 3 times and it has not went through. I will continue to rate until it does. This recipe is worthy.
