This is a recipe I developed for the Culinary Quest 2016 Challenge "Pita - Stuff It!" This makes for a delicious breakfast or even a light dessert!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a light and delicious breakfast option. We loved how the cinnamon and sugar mixture makes the pita sweet and crunchy. It's a great compliment to the creamy yogurt and fruit mixture. There is a great combination of fruits stuffed inside. Toasted almonds are a great topping and add that last bit of crunch. A simple but yummy idea!

How To Make

  • 1
    Heat a cast iron griddle or any skillet over medium-low heat.

  • 4
    Place all 4 pitas on pre-heated griddle/skillet. Cook until nicely browned, about 3-5 mins.
  • 5
    Then flip to the other side and repeat.
  • 6
    While pitas are browning/toasting, clean and slice all the fruits.
  • 7
    Add to a bowl, mix until well combined.

    Let the pitas cool and then spread 1-2 tablespoons of the Greek yogurt inside the pita.

    TIP: If you need to toast your sliced almonds, put them on a small pan and put them in a pre-heated oven or toaster oven for about 4-5 minutes, until lightly browned.
