RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is one of the best burgers that I've ever eaten! Don't let the word Gyro scare you since it is just hamburger meat! Even if you don't like yogurt, you will love this cucumber sauce! I'm not a fan of yogurt but I loved this sauce so much, I served my burger with extra sauce! Yum!
