Pita Sandwiches. A great sandwich idea for feeding a crowd. Pita Roll Up Sandwiches slathered with Boursin Cheese and Your Favorite Deli Meat. Perfect Pot Luck Sandwich.
I had really big cooking plans for this weekend…and I mean really big. (You’ve got to fold your arms high across your chest and say that last “really big” in your best Ed Sullivan voice.)
My post for the Chef Paul Sliders had me in the mood for more Cajun. I bookmarked a Red Beans and Rice recipe which was to slow cook for hours with ham hocks and andouille sausage in an array of brightly seasoned Cajun spices.
Spooned over some hot steaming white rice the whole thing was then to be slathered in some Brown Cajun Gravy. Oh but wait…there’s more.
Sunday morning leftovers were to be used for Eggs Basin Street. Milk and flour were to be added to the leftover rice and molded into cakes and fried. The rice cakes were to be topped with a scoop of the leftover red beans and a poached egg and the whole thing drizzled with a Cajun béarnaise sauce. Now doesn’t that sound wonderful?
My plans were foiled Friday evening when I ended up with a stomach bug. Even the sound of Hubs clanging dishes around in the kitchen sent me grabbing for pillows to cover my ears.
I even ordered all cooking magazines, gleaming with their beautiful glossy food photos, out of my sight. Saturday night a bowl of clear beef broth tasted wonderful and I could have cared less about Chef Paul and his “feast”.
So, with all that said, let’s take a look at a platter of pita sandwiches I made a couple of months back for a potluck event. Easy and so packed with flavor you might want to consider them for next weekend’s food event. Let’s take a look:
Recipe for Pita Sandwiches, Potluck Sandwich Recipe
These pita sandwiches are so easy to make and a great idea if you’re feeding a crowd. A football party crowd comes to mind.
Just be sure to use pocketless pita’s and have fun. These pita sandwiches are so versatile. I’ve used Boursin cheese, mortadella and pastrami.
But make them your own, by using a different brand of flavored spreadable cheese, your favorite sandwich deli meat and spices. Mix and match, roll them up and top them with a pickle or as I have done, a small pepperoncini pepper.
If you do make these, please come back and give the recipe a star rating and leave a comment about your experience with the recipe.
And if you have a favorite pita sandwich recipe, let me know, I love a good sandwich and will give them a try.
