2 (out of 3)




Ezra Street Market, London

An East-London Bacon Butty inspired me to make myself this Pita. Because that is the role of a Pita Bread. It’s the ideal edible basket to stuff with leftover delight. So today’s leftover delight is a bag of Spinach leaves. That I sautéed with a couple of red onions and a few strips of bacon in a hot casserole. After a brisk sieve. I stuffed a grilled Pita Bread, with this lukewarm mash of veg and meat. And topped off with a few slices of Stilton. What else would you need on a Saturday afternoon?
