    Serves: 4 

    • 4 large, oval pitta breads
    • 100g sliced Gruyère cheese
    • 100g dry-cure or honey-roast ham
    • chutney or relish

    Prep:6min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:11min 

    1. Warm 4 large, oval pitta breads, preferably wholemeal, under a medium grill for 1 minute on each side, or in a toaster for 20 seconds (just to make the pittas easier to open – take care not to toast them). Cut each in half widthways and open up each half to make a pocket. Thinly spread inside with softened butter or sunflower margarine, if you like.
    2. Divide 100g sliced Gruyère cheese and 100g dry-cure or honey-roast ham (fat trimmed) among the pitta breads and add 1 tsp chutney or relish to each. (Make sure that the cheese and ham are tucked inside the pocket or they may catch and burn.)
    3. Grill the pitta breads for 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until the pitta is lightly toasted. Alternatively, pop inside a toasting bag and heat in the toaster.

    Buttered the inside of the pita bread, filled the pocket with the cheese and ham, toasted in the oven, and then topped with the chutney. Quick & tasty lunch today!  -  18 Feb 2015
