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.

Picky Eaters Will Love FunBites!

I am lucky that I do not have a picky eater for a child.  My kid will eat just about anything from a banana to a Gruyere tuna bake.  My son does, however, like it when I give him food in easy to handle pieces.

 That’s where the FunBites gets… fun!  I have loved using this tool to cut up my son’s toast and jelly, peanut butter sandwiches, pancakes, pizza and cheese.  It is really nice to have uniform sized bites for him and it didn’t take 5 minutes of my day to cut them with a knife.

Easy to Use!

This is incredibly easy to use.  All you have to do is place the FunBites cutter on top of the food, grab the handles on both sides of the cutter, press down and firmly rock back and forth 5-6 times.  Then, push the popper top down and pop the pieces out of the FunBites.

FunBites Clean Up Is Easy Too!

To clean up, all you have to do is hand wash or toss the pieces in the top rack of your dishwasher.  Oh, and it is BPA free.  So, no worries from this mom about using it on my kiddo’s food!

I would recommend this as a stocking stuffer or regular gift for anyone who regularly cares for a young child.  Moms/Dads, grandparents, daycare workers, and babysitters would all be able to use this kitchen tool to get little ones to eat their snacks and meals.
