I was looking for something different to feed my family while staying on a budget. These greek gyros were a smash with the adults and kids. I substituted chicken breast since I had it on hand instead of the turkey. The tzatziki sauce was tangy and refreshing using Daisy squeeze sour cream which I had received free for testing purposes through Influenster. My children didn't even realize they were eating cucumbers in the sauce and dipped their chopped veggies into extra tzatziki sauce. We had enough for lunch leftovers and the taste was just as fresh and satisfying the next day. Price per serving was budget friendly as we didn't need much of the extras like kalmata olives to add flavor.

We loved these! The only change I made was to use ground chicken instead of ground turkey - it worked perfectly. The kiddo preferred them deconstructed, but loved all of the elements too!
