SPAM® Gyros

SPAM® Gyros

Even if you can’t pronounce “gyro” you can still make ones with pronounced flavor. Simply sizzle up thin slices of SPAM® Classic and SPAM® turkey and toss them on pita rounds, topping things off with a zesty lemon and yogurt mix. It’s a Mediterranean taste worthy of a Greek god.
