This blog is dedicated to Mum, my greatest mentor. It is a compilation of simple recipes - Bengali, Indian, Burmese and Continental, among others. All of these recipes have been tested in my kitchen. Most use everyday ingredients found at your local market, but some use specialty ingredients available at Asian and/or Indian markets. Comments are welcome and members are invited to send in any recipes they would like to share.
It was 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon and hunger pangs were gnawing and fighting for attention. I raided the fridge and came up with these quick, satisfying & delicious bites in a matter of 10 minutes! Instead of the pita pocket halves, regular bread slices would work just as well. Cut each slice of bread in half square triangles after toasting.
½ a whole grain pita pocket
½ cup grated cheddar (or other) cheese
1 stalk green onion, diced
¼ jalapeno pepper, diced
¼ medium tomato, diced
1 Tbsp. bacon bits
Dash of black pepper
Split pita pocket in half horizontally through the pocket.
Mix remaining ingredients and mound on each half of pita.
