Homemade Gyros with Watermelon-Feta Salad

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a very large bowl combine ground lamb, onion, bacon, Italian seasoning, salt, cumin, and pepper. Place mixture, half at a time, in a food processor; process until a fine paste forms. Divide between two 8x4-inch loaf pans, pressing evenly.
  2. Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until done (170 degrees F). Drain off fat. Cool in pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pans. Cut loaves in half crosswise. If desired, serve one half-loaf right away (see tip, below). Cool the remaining half-loaves completely. Transfer each half-loaf to a freezer bag or container; seal and freeze for up to 3 months.
  3. To serve, thaw one half-loaf in the refrigerator overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove from freezer bag and wrap in foil, leaving space for steam to build. Place in a shallow baking pan. Bake about 30 minutes or until heated through (165 degrees F). Cool slightly; cut into thin slices.

To make sandwiches:

  1. Using a vegetable peeler, cut cucumber lengthwise into thin ribbons. Spread flatbreads with yogurt. Arrange cucumber ribbons, meatloaf slices, and Watermelon-Feta Salad on half of each flatbread; fold in half.
