Warm Pita Mushroom Melt
Time: 15 minutes
Plan Ahead: Make the dressing ahead of time. Slice the mushrooms, grate the cheese.
2 7-inch rounds of Pita bread
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
2 cups sliced (¼ inch) white mushrooms
⅔ cup mozzarella cheese, grated
½ to 1 Tablespoon Italian dressing (store bought)
1. In a medium size frying pan over low heat, sauté the mushrooms in the olive oil and butter about 3 min. Salt lightly. Add the mozzarella cheese just until it melts. Set aside.
2. Warm each Pita in a small frying pan over medium heat about 2 min. per side with a few drops of olive oil. Cover. Turn so both sides are warm. Divide the mushrooms and cheese between the 2 Pitas.
3. Pour ½ to 1 Tablespoon of the dressing on to each mushroom melt. Fold over. Serve immediately.
Serve with: Chips of choice. Basic Salad on page 258, Strawberry Days Salad on page 267 or Couscous Salad on page 269.
