Souflaki Pita Sandwiches

I’ve been enjoying this for as long as I can remember!  My parents met and fell in love in Greece while they were both serving in the U.S. Air Force.  It’s very simple, and very yummy…especially if you love a good roast, like I do! If you’re feeling really creative, make your own tzatziki sauce instead of using sour cream. Or mix a dash or two of lemon juice in your sour cream for a little more flavor.  Click here for more of my mom’s recipes or to check out her novels.
