Expert Tips

Soft pita folds are pliable and perfect for wrapping around sandwich ingredients. The pita folds do not have a pocket like traditional pitas do.

Instead of the pita breads, you can use bratwurst or hoagie buns to serve these hearty sandwiches.

To broil sausage links and vegetables, place sausages on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Add vegetables to broiler pan; cook an additional 10 to 15 minutes, turning vegetables and sausages occasionally.
