Cuisine: Sandwiches
Serves: 4
  • 4 six-inch plain or whole wheat pita pockets
  • 4 ounces low-fat cheese ( cheddar, mozzarella, or Swiss), shredded or coarsely grated
  • Non-stick vegetable oil spray
  • Optional additions: 2 thin slices tomato, 3 thin slices onion, 1 piece crumbled, cooked turkey bacon, 4 this rounds dill pickles, 1 small mushroom, sliced and 1 tablespoon sliced, pitted olives
  1. Cut a small slice from one side of each pita to make an opening, and stuff one-fourth of the cheese and any optional additions into each opening. (Make sure that any optional addition is wedged in the middle of the cheese, so that the cheese melts evenly and the pita stays crisp.)
  2. In a preheated large skillet that has been sprayed with the nonstick vegetable spray, cook the stuffed pitas over4 moderate heat, covered, for 5 minutes a side or until crispy on both sides.
