Fakeaway Kebab | Friday Food.

It’s Friday! Which obviously means that the weekend is only a few hours away. I hear your excited screeches.

If you are anything like Ryan, then it’s around this time where you start craving all things takeaway. You can bet your bottom dollar that as soon as the hands on the clock hit 3pm on a Friday, I will get a text along the lines of:

I could really do with a kebab or Chinese Tamara.

Sound familiar? I will admit that we used to give in to these cravings and treat ourselves some kind of takeaway at least twice during the weekend and honestly, I am super embarrassed albeit a little ashamed at just how much we have spent on takeaways.

Determined to save as much money as we can from now on, we decided that instead of going and grabbing ourselves a takeaway, we would in fact make our own.

Doner kebab ingredients

We’ve been making our own “fakeaway” for a while now. Especially Doner kebabs. There are many, many ways to make your own kebab meat on the internet. I have tried them myself and although it wasn’t too bad it just wasn’t something that my family were screaming to have again.

It wasn’t until a quick trip to Iceland where I stumbled across their pack of Doner Kebab meat that we decided to make the meal again and honestly, Iceland hit the nail on the head with this. Both Ryan and Shaniah always request this meal and as a result I thought I would share how we do it with you!

Fakeaway Kebab

A healthier version of a Doner Kebab, which are usually high in fat and a little on the pricier side.

Try this super easy yet tasty alternative.

  • Iceland Kebab Meat


  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Tomato
  • Onion
  • Cabbage
  • Chilli Pepper
  • Sauce (mayo,sweet,etc)
  • Pitta (We use wholemeal)
  1. Cook the Doner meat to the package instructions.

  2. Whilst the meat is cooking, warm the pitta’s under a grill and slice the Salad.

  3. Once the meat is cooked fill the pitta’s with meat and a selection of Salad and Sauce if you wish.

  4. Serve alone or with chips, it really is up to you! 


You can even get the youngsters to fill their own! Something Shaniah absolutely loves to do.

    Ohhhhh I love this! I need to check on the carbs in the Iceland donner meat but this maybe a winner for me. A takeaway is always a treat but making a fakeaway means you don’t have to wait ages for delivery! 🙂 It looks super yummy! Sim x
