Middle Eastern Meat-Filled Pita Wedges
AppetizersandMunchies

Exotic, savory appetizers for the grill.


Ingredients:

1 onion, coursely chopped

1 cup gently packed fresh parsley

3/4 lb. ground sirloin

3/4 lb. ground lamb

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

Salt and pepper to taste

8 - 10 pita rounds (the 10" size)


Recipe:

Place onion and parsley in food processor and process until fine.  Add both meats and spices and blend well.

Cut pita rounds into wedges.  Open each wedge and spread a thin layer of meat mixture on with a rubber spatula.  Grill 3 - 5 minutes over a medium flame, turning once, or until pitas have nice grill marks and are slightly crunchy.  Serve immediately.  Makes about 32.

Note:  If you don't like lamb, use all ground sirloin.  These may be made up ahead of time and stored in refrigerator, covered, up to 24 hours before grilling.  Option:  Serve them with a lemon-sour cream dip.
