EASY FLATBREAD (an update)

I’ve been making my own pita bread for a number of years now because…well…because it’s too easy not to ((link here to my old recipe: Stove Top Pita).

HALIFAX DONAIR

HALIFAX DONAIR

Most of my more recent recipes have been in the ‘comfort food’ category, but I guess in fairness to our current -42 ° C winter conditons, who could blame me. But those freshly made stove top pitas are calling to me. I’m thinking leftover grilled chicken sandwich with a fresh salad.
