Garlic & Parmesan Pita Chips

2 Pita bread pockets
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced fine
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Salt

Heat your oven to 400F. 

Cut the pita bread into 8 triangles, and then split them apart.  Place them evenly on a baking sheet.  I like to place them inside down. pita bread

In a mixing bowl, combine the oil, garlic and salt.  Brush over one side of the pita triangles, and then sprinkle with the parmesan.

Bake in the oven for 6-8 minutes, or until the pita triangles are golden brown.  These can burn pretty easily, so keep your eye on it. 

Variations:

This is one of those recipes where the only limit is your imagination.  There are hundreds of combinations:

  • Black pepper, garlic salt, dried basil, dried chervil
    Cajun seasoning, ground cumin
    Sesame Seeds
    Prepared Italian Dressing, parmesan & sesame seeds
    Lemon Pepper & Garlic
    Basil & Pine Nuts, with Parmesan

Notes:

I like these chips as is, but they are great for all kinds of dips

Crumble these up, and use in place of croutons in salads
