Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
Be sure meats are ground very fine. The gyro mixture needs to be very
dense in texture.
Put all ingredients in
a large mixing bowl or pot. Using your hands, mix ingredients together
to thoroughly incorporate the two meats, flavoring herbs and spices. If
he mixture feels too stiff, add a tablespoon or two of ice water to help
soften it. The completed mixture needs to be stiff and dense; so, don't
be concerned about over mixing.
Place meat mixture in
meatloaf pan; firmly packing it down. Smooth top surface. Drizzle cooking
oil over top and place in pre-heated 350°F oven. Bake for about 45
to 60 minutes.
Meat should be well done
and internal temperature should register about 175-180°F. on an instant
read thermometer. Juices should run clear.
