My sister finally answered the question that had been driving me mad for the last couple of weeks.

How on earth can you slice pitta bread open without losing your mind?

The answer is incredibly simple – just pop them in the toaster (or microwave) for a few seconds first. Once they’ve been heated up a bit you’ll be able to slice them open quite easily.

So this afternoon I put this new knowledge into action when preparing this quite tasty snack.
