Donair Burrito with Donair Sauce, Tomatoes & Onions. It’s the same as a donair except it’s wrapped in a Tortilla and Grilled. Or is it?

Is a burrito wrapped in Pita Bread still a Burrito? Or is a Donair wrapped like a burrito actually a burrito, even though it’s pita bread? If a donair was wrapped in a Tortilla instead of a Pita Bread, is it still a Donair?

You can choose to shape the donair meat into a loaf and cook and then thinly slice, or cook the ground Donair meat.

Another option is to get a Refried Bean texture by adding 1/2 C water or more to the Donair Meat and mixing well, and then cooking on the stove top until done. This will give you a paste type of meat similar to the Seasoned Ground Beef meat found at Taco Bell.

Stuff the Burrito with Fries too.

I have never found Donair Sauce being sold commercially that resembled the Donair Sauce of Halifax. That’s okay though because you can make this at home pretty quickly and easily, and it is the real thing. Better than any store-bought version.

When Saucing, you can place the sauce on top of the meat and then the cheese to further protect it against the heat and becoming runny. My Preference is cooked in with some solid donair sauce on the side to dip. I love the little grainy texture donair sauce leaves behind when cooked. But that’s just me.

Use a Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese blend at a 3:1 ratio. This is really a beautiful cheese blend that works exceptionally well with donair meat.

Add to the Burritos diced Onions & Tomatoes. That’s all that is really needed for the Donair Burrito. The fries are a nice touch too.
