Portobello Gyros

 During my travels in Greece, I got hooked on gyros. We ate them every night for dinner and never tired of them. However, I don't always enjoy eating mushrooms, but this dish is a winner! Not only are they much cheaper than lamb, mushrooms are full of B vitamins, vitamin D, copper, selenium, zinc, and many other essential minerals! Serve these with a big Greek salad. They are sure to be a hit!
