And . . . . what you made is probably much healthier than any restaurant.

Here, people can buy an unhealthy frozen pizza quite cheaply. Cheaper than making it from scratch.
But homemade is worth the extra money for something healthier. And it would taste better, too.

most greeks like or love gyro
why would i go out and eat it at a point like this
when money is short
so lets see the deference
5 servings of gyro is 10 euros each = 50 euros for the whole family to have a serving
frozen french fries 2 euros each serving we need 2 that 4 euros
some drinks and that would usually be 10 euros
so we have 50 + 4 + 10 =64 euros
way to much at this point of my life
i will make some at home
bought pork 1 kilo boneless 7.50 euros
bought store brand tzatziki 2 euros
seasoning and frozen french fries and pita, have left over from store( i have a small store that works in summer only nowadays)
so with 10 euros we will eat healthier and cheaper
and the junk food left from summer won't go to waste
ok i could make tzatziki from scratch but i was lazy today
if you cook allot you can have junk food that is healthy(not counting french fries)
and for half the price or even more
well the way to make homemade gyro is easy
take a piece of pork
slice it to small pieces like the one you buy ready
season it to taste
sprinkle some olive oil
and place in fridge for a couple of hours
when it is time to cook it put it in oven and under the grill
stir every so often
and there you go
you got gyro

i also make home made pizza from scratch
the only thing i buy is the ingredients for sauce and dough and of course the toppings ,
very cheap this way
and my 2 teenagers don't go out often for junk food
