Garlic Pita " Naan "

"Finding myself equipped with (almost) everything I needed for last night’s Indian feast, I discovered much to my dismay that I didn’t have any naan. (The horror!) We’re not really “bread people”, so it’s easy for me to overlook this. I did, however, remember that I had, on a recent Trader Joe’s trip, picked up some mini pitas. Man, have you tried those puppies? This is by no means an authentic naan, though it’s round and breadish, but you can fake out your pitas by doing the following..."

    Absolutely perfect, and saved me in a pinch! I used my George Foreman Grill instead of the broiler. Worked great.

    This got the "this is amazing" vote from my guys, which is highest praise. I had some pita that was going to go stale and a dinner that needed something extra - so this was perfect! Thanks for posting.

    Have to agree with other reviewers this is a great super fast recipe to serve with dinner. It took me no time at all and I couldn't have enjoyed it more. Thanks for the idea.

    Yum! I made these to go with Recipe #70084. I just used regular pita bread, cut into 4 pieces. A very easy, tasy little side. Thanks!
