Cheese & Sprout Pita Pocket Sandwich

Cheese & Sprout SandwichSometimes it’s the simplest of things.

Cheese & sprouts. But that’s not all. Layered between the creamy Havarti cheese, and crunchy sprouts, is a garlicky, dilly dressing that completely transforms this simple sandwich. You won’t believe how good this is.

Of course, you would believe, if you’ve ever been to Cazenovia, New York circa 1990. If you were, you definitely ate at the now closed restaurant, The Wheatberry. Oh La. I wish that place were still around. It had the most amazing food, and I over the years, I have recreated what I remember of most of their menu. This recipe is inspired by the very first sandwich that they served, from their tiny walk-in place even before it ever became a beautiful full service restaurant.Cheese & Sprout Sandwich

I cut it or if you used small pitas, just leave them whole if it’s easier to eat.

So delicious! Easy and perfect for any vegetarians, or even just people who love food. I am serious. I would never have thought that my meat loving husband would love this sandwich, but he does. I don’t know if it’s that he feel so virtuous after eating so many sprouts, or whether it’s because the sauce is so flipping good. Either way, this one is a winner in my house.

Your welcome. Enjoy~

    I long for the days when I used to eat sprouts. I had a fave sandwich at a local shop that used a ton of sprouts. But now I just can’t bring myself to buy them or order them at a restaurant. This looks beautiful!
