Homemade Donairs

This is a recipe from "What's cooking in South Ohio!" It's a great little cookbook that I got when we were married and I love trying recipes out of it.
Anyone who knows us, knows that we LOVE donairs........we have a great place up the street from our house that we buy them but we also like to make them at home. This is a recipe that I've used and we don't always follow the spice measurements exactly. You have to play around to get the taste you like as every donair place is a little different. Thanks to Claris Diggins for putting this in the recipe book.....

2 1/2 lbs hamburger
1/2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder

Combine all the ingredients together and mix well. We put it right in the Kitchen Aid and mix it and it compresses the meat really well. Form into 2 ball. Bake at 300F for 2 hours on a broiler pan so the fat drains out of the meat. Slice and serve.

Jeff mixes the sauce by hand with no measuring so I'm including the one that was in the recipe because you can't enjoy donairs without the sauce.....

2/3 can condensed milk ( carnation)
2/3 cup brown or white sugar
1/4 cup vinegar

Combine and mix together. You have to be careful when mixing as if you over mix it won't thicken....

All ready to go......not cut thin like I wanted but that will
be the next thing to master.....LOL

Ready to roll......
