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.
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.)
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.
