Grilled sandwiches seem to be a multi-cultural favorite knowing no borders nor continent.
From the Mexican, to the British, Italian, American, and beyond. Today’s is the Arab version (one of many), using the famous Lebanese pita bread.There seems to be something irresistible about hot, melted, stringy cheese. Layers of melty cheese stacked with thin slices of mortadella and pickled jalapeno. Fancy a spicier take? Sub the mortadella with basturma or sujuk slices.
