    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!

    Easy, nice blend of flavors. Would definitely make again. Add an apple on the side, glass of milk and dinner is complete.

    We substituted ground beef for the ground turkey because we had it on hand. This was an excellent quick dinner and my husband and I both loved it!

    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.
