Another gyros

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 pounds Lean ground lamb
2 slices Homemade bread, toasted and crumbled
1 teaspoon Allspice, crushed
1 teaspoon Coriander seed, crushed
1 Clove garlic, pressed
1 Onion, grated
1 teaspoon Fresh savory, chopped
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Bacon slices (optional)

In large bowl, combined all ingredients. Mix well, kneading until mixture is stiff. Make fingers of meat (about 5-inches longer and not over 2-inches in diameter). Place fingers on skewer spacing about 1-inch apart. Cook over hot coals for 10 to 15 minutes, turning frequently until cooked through.

You may wrap the "fingers" on the skewer with sliced bacon. If anyone tries this, let me know how it works out.

NOTE: I have this frequently in Greece and here in the U.S., but as I have said, I view it as a "deli" item. Krinos Foods has a "gyros kit" that is sold in the frozen food section of some supermarkets.
