Not Your Average Ham and Cheese

by zesty on January 29, 2009 · 18 comments

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening… depending on when you are reading this and what part of the world you are located.  This week has flown by very quickly which is a good thing since I enjoy the weekends so much.  Even though it’s a weeknight, I am going to a comedy show starring Jeremy Hotz.   I am pretty excited as it will be a nice break from the regular routine.

So I guess you’re wondering about the title, Not your average ham and cheese.  I had some Pita bread that I picked up from the bakery and I always seem to have some roasted turkey breast or deli ham in the fridge for a quick sandwich. As I love to use leftovers, I thought I would share a pita sandwich that I put together.

Roasted Ham Wrap

It is nothing fancy but great as a lunch or even a quick meal on the run.  Another great way to kick this up and add a different texture is to grill it with an indoor grill or even on the barbecue.  Basically grill it until the pita browns and the cheese melts.


  • Pita Bread
  • Ham Slices
  • Lettuce
  • Parsley (only if you have any)
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Parmesan Cheese ( sliced )
  • 1 Tsp. Chili Powder
  • Mayonnaise
  • Mustard


  1. Cut the Pita bread in two and create a pocket like opening.
  2. Mix chili powder, mayonnaise, and mustard together to make a spread.
  3. Smear inside pita bread with some of the spread.
  4. Place all other ingredients in the pita (be gentle).
  5. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: When using pita bread, if you find it is getting stale or simply not as fresh – a quick technique to bring it back to life is to slightly dampen the bread with your wet fingers and then place it in the oven for a few minutes.
