What says New York street food more than the hot dog? Well, these days, there are zillions of options from cuisines all around the world. One of them is the gyro, the Greek pita-wrapped sandwich of shaved lamb combined with tzatziki, tomatoes and onions. That's my kind of sandwich: savory, garlicky, and tangy. To mingle these two parts of the American culinary landscape, I have envisioned a Greek hot dog, in this case a spiced lamb sausage dressed with tzatziki, and garnished with sliced onion, tomato and crumbled feta.
spicy lamb sausages (Note: my vegetarian friends can substitute TofuPups or other vegetarian hot dogs for the lamb sausage, and non-lamb eaters can substitute their favorite hot dog. The tzatziki and toppings supply the essence of the flavor.)
