Jazzed up Grilled Cheese and Turkey Pita

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by chef FIFI

My mother gave me the idea, by kicking the boring grilled cheese sandwich up a notch. Then I experimented by using pita bread and it is not only quick and easy but savory for when I want something light but heartier than just the everyday sandwich.

I had this idea but wasn't sure how to execute it until I found your easy instructions :) I spread goat cheese on the bottom of the pita and topped it with heirloom tomatoes and then gilled it the way you said. The result was delicious! Thank you!

  • 1 pita pocket
  • 12-1 garlic clove (any size)
  • 1 tablespoon margarine (enough to coat both sides of pita)

  1. First step is to chop garlic up finely, preferrably in a mortar until is smashed all to pieces:}.
  2. Then combine garlic and margarine so that it makes a garlic butter of it's own in a separate bowl (you should have alot left over for next time or additional sandwiches).
  3. Cut pita's in half and fill your pocket pitas as you like them.
  4. Coat the pita's on the outside with the garlic butter.
  5. Heat a pan up and grilled them to taste.
