A low-cost, high taste, medium effort snack for when you have a group of friends around, or just want something to nibble on with that glass of wine, or beer.
I have memories of making 100’s of them for a housewarming party many years ago, but I think the idea might have come from my Mum. (checking her blog… yup!). I’m pretty sure these were a part of the catering repertoire at one point or another in her career.
I’ve made 2 different sorts, certainly the flavours are versatile, and this is a great way to use up stale pita bread.
- pita bread
- olive oil/garlic or herb infused oil
- mixed herbs
- finely grated cheese – I used tasty but I think this would be awesome with parmesan too.
Cut your pita bread into wedges and split apart to place onto a baking tray.
Spot oil onto the bread with a pastry brush and then sprinkle with the salt and herbs. Cheese is optional.
Bake in a 180-200c oven for approx 5 mins or until golden brown. Cool and serve with dips or in a bowl like chips. Will keep in an air tight container for a few days.
Happy Cooking, and Happy Eating,
