  • Cut pita in half and spread the insides with mustard, dividing evenly between the two halves. Stuff the pita with apple and cheese, dividing evenly. Arrange on a foil-lined toaster-oven pan.

Delicious and satisfying light lunch. I used whole grain mustard which was tasty and a golden delicious apple which became nicely tender when warm. Also splurged on a nice aged cheddar to make up for the small portion of cheese. Read More

AMAZING! I love the combination of flavors here.The only thing I changed was the use of Dijon mustard instead of regular (all I had on hand). To my surprise the apples cheddar cheese and mustard blend very well with each other. The greens add texture and crisp to each warm bite. The melted cheddar tones down the flavors of sweet and sour making it absolutely perfect. I plan to make this for lunch for the rest of the week! Read More

Me my vegetarian friend and 1 year old boy liked them. Easy and quick to make. I almost left out the mustard because it sounded weird but glad I didn't because it added another dimension to the flavors. Have already made it again! Read More
