The Background Story
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches on Pita

There are so many ways to use pita pockets. If you're making pita you will almost always have some left over ... you will almost certainly be looking for new, interesting ways to use your pita pockets.

In fact, if you're making your own pita, you'll want more ways to use those wonderful bread pockets.

This flat bread is a great way to have a grilled cheese. It's as fat-free as a grilled cheese can be. It uses no fat for frying ... it's dry-fried on your heat diffuser - the same tool you use to make your pitas. These can also be done, with no fat added for cooking, on a grill (in- or outdoors). Naturally, you can place one of these cheese-filled pita pockets on a plate in the microwave oven and you've got a wonderful, soft, melted cheese sandwich in about 20 to 25 seconds (or timed to your melting preference). If microwaving your cheese on pita sandwich, we suggest a paper towel under the pita to absorb excess liquid. While you can also fry them in a pan (you would need a bit of [butter or your choice of] fat to keep the pitas from sticking) we've never tried this prefering bread for the traditional, fried approach.

It's delightfully easy to make and takes only a few minutes for this great, almost traditional, low-fat snack.
