Garlic Pita Chips

"These are superb with soups and salads or as a simple appetizer. Try experimenting with other toppings such as grated parmesan cheese or grated lemon rind. Taken from the Family Circle Cookbook. The easiest way to apply the egg mixture is if you spoon some in the middle and then use a pastry brush to spread it to the edges of the chip...enjoy!"

    Wow, these were good! Everyone loved them and they were great served with homemade tzatziki and on their own. I have tried a few recipes for pita chips and this was definitely the best, I will make these again. I did run out of the topping and made another half batch at the end, but my package of pita was 10 oz instead of 8.

    I loved these! They were great with the hot broccoli dip (recipe 48526). I don't think I cooked mine long enough, though, because the longer they sat, they got kinda soft. Not soggy, but not crunchy. So I think I will cook them longer next time. But SO good. Thanks!!

    A great idea, great recipe w/easy prep & great tasty outcome! I use pitas a lot & my mind has been racing w/all the diff ways I can use these babies! No more buttered garlic bread w/the much-favored soup course here -- No more high-fat & salty chips for nachos & dip -- No more crackers for salads & spreads -- No more stress or being caught unprepared if you make them in bulk qty, keep in your freezer & grab what you need to make quick bruschetta, serve w/spaghetti & lasagna, etc. The options seem endless & I am so in love w/your recipe. Thx for sharing this new-for-me idea that will be a staple of our table.


I am lucky enough to be "living the good life". I have the most wonderful husband and two terrific teenage daughters. We reside in Central Pennsylvania where we have the luck of having four full seasons. Between my husband and myself, we have two full time jobs, three businesses and one part time job. We are very busy, but try to take it easy when we can and enjoy the wonderful life we have been blessed with. Future plans include moving to an inherited 45 acre farm in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. This will occur if and when our DD's leave the nest. We love to travel and have enjoyed seeing all of North America and a large portion of the United States together. Since discovering Zaar, I have to say my life has become more flavorful! I have learned that it's easier than I thought to have an organized, well-planned and yet creative and fun kitchen! I love the features of Zaar, but especially enjoy the people. I have become addicted to the forums and now love taking photos of the food I prepare. I am officially a Zaar junky! I've also started taking pictures of most of the recipes I prepare...Here are some of the pics I've taken of dishes that are available at Zaar: <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="" height="360" width="480"><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="¤t=442caae0.pbw" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a> I love most foods. My only dislikes are green peppers and coffee...weird, huh? Been trying to eat and cook healthier for the children and to help control DH's high cholesterol. I anything cheesy, salty and crunchy. Needless to say I dream about nachos in my sleep! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a>
