With kids heading back to school and the weather cooling down for some
of us (sorry, Texas and other sweltering states) we thought this week would
be a great time to round up all your portable lunchbox-friendly recipes.
Whether you're packing a picnic or looking for something
other than PB & J to send to school, tell us...
What's YOUR favorite PORTABLE recipe?
Share 'em all in today's Recipe Round-Up.
Here's one to inspire you from our newest book in the Our Favorites series, Our Favorite Melts & Wraps. It's full of tasty take-along inspiration...sandwiches for suppertime too!
Lunchbox Pita Pockets
Great with cooked chicken or turkey as well, this recipes makes 6 servings but they'll keep well in the fridge. You could always halve the recipe and keep just a few for later in the week too!
1-1/2 c. yogurt
1-1/2 c. cucumber,
1-1/2 t. fresh parsley,
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. salt
1/2 t. sugar
hot pepper sauce to taste
6 sausage patties
3 pita rounds,
sliced in half
1 tomato, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1/2 head lettuce, torn
1/2 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
Combine yogurt, cucumber and seasonings in a medium-size bowl; mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Prepare sausage patties according to package directions. Gently open up pita pockets; fill equally with a sausage patty, vegetables and cheese. Spoon in cucumber sauce; wrap tightly in wax paper and refrigerate until serving. Serves 6.
