Toasted Pita Bread Triangles



Hot Out Of The Oven



Pita bread is used to make pita wraps and sandwiches, but it is also wonderful as a bread on an appetizer tray for dips.  I remember the first time I had toasted pita triangles and how simply delicious they were served with hummus.  To use it for appetizers, it does need to be toasted or crisped.  Toasted Pita Bread Triangles are one of many appetizer ideas I will be sharing over the next few weeks.  Start with a package of  pita bread or flatbread.



You can use either the flat bread as I have done here or the pocket pita type — it really doesn’t matter.  You can also use either the traditional white pita bread or whole wheat.  Try it plain the first time you make it to just enjoy the simple goodness of this bread.  Then, add some extra pizzazz the next time you make this by adding salt or different types of dried herbs before you bake it.
