Love to grab a Gyro sandwich on the run? You can have all the flavors of a Gyro but in the form of Gyro Nachos. Perfect for a party and full of Greek flavors! Make everything ahead of time and assemble when ready to wow your guests!
My husband Brooks is really the one that introduced me to Greek food and a gyro. When he travels, which is all the time, he eats Greek or Mediterranean food at least once during each trip.
He is drawn to a gyro and the flavors of cucumber, dill, lemon, lamb, and that tasty pita bread!
Know what I don’t see a lot of? Greek Nachos much less Gyro Nachos!
