These leftover lamb gyros take lamb to the next level. Locked and loaded with lamb, onion, tomatoes, lettuce, and homemade tzatziki sauce, these gyros are a hit!
Do you love gyros as much as I do?
I seriously could eat one every.single.day. Not lying.
We came up with these leftover lamb roast gyros because we had tons of leftover lamb when we roasted our boneless leg of lamb recipe. But gyros aren’t gyros without that amazingly delicious, cool and refreshing, mouth watering 5 minute tzatziki sauce. Yes. It’s that good. I would never steer you wrong here, friends. SO TRUST.
We’re talking warm pitas, warm leftover lamb roast, slathered in white onions, fresh tomato, lettuce, and the keeper- 5 minute homemade tzatziki sauce. Some peeps like to add a touch of lemon to their gyro by slicing up lemons and squeezing them over the gyro. I usually do this but these were so good that not one of us had to use the lemon!
