A Quick Dinner Recipe

August 19, 2013

I have often found myself excited to cook up an amazing dinner, and by the time it actually comes around for me to get in the kitchen and put it all together, I have lost interest. Well, I have come up with a perfect dinner that will be sure to impress, but calls for 20 minutes in the kitchen tops! Complete win/win! Not to mention, it tastes wonderful, provides delicious leftovers for lunch the next day, and involves minimal clean up!

Quick 'n' Easy Pitas
  • nWhat You'll Need:
    • Turkey burger
    • 1 large green pepper
    • 1 large onion
    • 1 large can of mushrooms
    • 5-pack of whole wheat, round flatbread (you can find them near the deli)
    • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
    • Garlic Salt
    • Olive Oil
    • Butter, I prefer spreadable butter for this
    • Aluminum foil
  • What You'll Do:
    • Preheat the oven to 450. 
    • Cook the turkey burger in its own skillet, sprinkling with garlic salt while it cooks through. Add as much as you like. 
    • In a separate skillet cook the onion and green pepper with a drizzle of olive oil and garlic salt. Cook until they are soft, then add the mushrooms and more garlic salt. 
    • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the flatbread on the pan (you may need more than one pan) and lightly spread butter. Put those in the oven until the butter has melted. Right before you are ready to top them with the meat and veggies, turn the oven to broil. YOU MUST WATCH THEM CAREFULLY OR THEY WILL BURN IN SECONDS! Let the edges crisp, then pull them out. Turn the oven off at this point
    • First layer the turkey burger on the flatbread, followed by the veggies, and topped off with cheese. Put back in the oven just long enough for the cheese to melt. Using a spatula, scoop each one onto a plate and then serve!
