In my last blog, I introduced the most innovative technological advancement to impact gyros in over thirty years… KronoBROIL® – flamed cooked, cone carved authentic gyros slices from Kronos. Pairing these new slices with warm pita bread, tzatziki sauce, onion and tomato will undoubtedly create the perfect gyros sandwich. But today, I would like to share a few creative ideas that will stretch the general interpretation of a gyros sandwich and make your menus extreme!
Try tossing hot KronoBROIL® slices in your favorite smoky barbeque sauce and piling it on warm pita bread. Top it off with shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled smoked bacon pieces and deep fried onion straws to create a “smokehouse” inspired gyros sandwich. For a Mediterranean twist on an old school Philadelphia favorite, try grilling onions and bell peppers alongside the KronoBROIL® slices and then topping it with melted cheese to create a delicious cheesesteak.
Still not “outside the box” enough for you?! Start with quick-pickling your favorite root vegetables like carrots, onions and daikon radishes. Warm pita piled high with KronoBROIL® slices, topped with the shredded veggies, fresh cilantro and sliced jalapeno, then finished with sriracha mayo. Now that’s what I call “Kronospired” BAHN MI!
KronoBROIL® Plus+ offers a more intense flavor profile whereby we’ve doubled the spice blend without adding any additional sodium content. These gyros slices work great when paired with other strong, competing flavors such as the toppings on a cheeseburger (see image at top of the page). Use the KronoBROIL® Plus+ slices in place of bacon strips for the ultimate cheeseburger in paradise! Loaded cheese fries are another great vehicle to showcase our delicious gyros slices. I like to start with curly-Q style fries, which are then topped with hot nacho cheese, chopped KronoBROIL® Plus+ gyros slices, diced tomatoes, chopped scallions and creamy tzatziki sauce.
With such versatility, the sky is the limit when it comes to the creative applications suitable for our new KronoBROIL® gyros slices. Please contact our Marketing department, or reach out to me directly for recipes and interesting new menu ideas.
