Gyros with spinach and beef

Nothing can take the place of a real lamb-meat-on-a-spit gyro but this fast weeknight version made with ground beef is certainly a viable option!

1 pound lean ground beef
1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
6 green onions, chopped
1 can (2-1/4 oz) sliced rip olives, drained
2 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning, divided
1 large tomato, chopped
1 cup (8 oz) fat-free plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise (Use the mayo with olive oil--flavor profile works great with this dish!)
6 pita breads (6 in.), halved
12 lettuce leaves
1 cup (4 oz) crumbled feta cheese

In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Add the spinach, onions, olives and 1 tsp lemon-pepper; heat through. Stir in tomato; set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, mayo and remaining lemon-pepper. Line pita halves with lettuce; fill with beef mixture and feta cheese. Serve with yogurt sauce.
