"Gyro" Burgers with Cucumber Sauce

So this recipe is a combination of few recipes from allrecipes.com. I am trying to branch out from eating Mexican every night! I served this with sliced onion on buns, and a side salad. I wish I still had my Penzey Greek Seasoning to use with the burgers, so I totally guessed on the burger seasoning. The verdict? We really enjoyed the cucumber sauce, the burgers.......well not so much! I'll keep looking!
