"These were really good! I think one pita half would be plenty, especially if served with side dishes. I had lots of left over sauce, but it will make a great dip for veggies! Thanks for the recipe!"

"Don't be scared off by the sauerkraut - it adds flavor and moistness to the meat. Very tasty and quick to make. My husband loved it. I used ground chicken because it was on sale this week and substituted reduced-fat sour cream and mayo to save some calories. Definitely a recipe we'll have again."

"I thought at first that the indgredients sounded wierd, but I was wrong, this was sooo good. My husband had 2 of them and my 6 year old daughter even asked for seconds. I left out the tomato and cucumber, and added some shredded cheese. Very tasty and easy to make."
