MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 2, 2013

These were good, even the pickiest eaters in my family enjoyed them. I used the sausages the recipe called for [found at Sams as well as many other chicken sausage options] and also made with a chicken sausage that had sweet peppers, fontina, garlic and onion. Roasted red peppers and onion on the grill with the sausage and offered that as an option for the filling.

The taste of chicken sausage gyros was not at all what I expected. It was not for me.
