Fried Garlic Pita

I sort of made up this recipe, and it turned out to be pretty good. I was trying to imitate a pita with garlic butter sauce appetizer this one restaurant makes.

Original recipe makes 4 servings


2 tablespoons butter, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
2 small (4 inch) pita bread rounds, cut in half

  2. Place the pita bread in the skillet, and top with remaining butter and lemon juice. Cook 10 minutes, turning often, until golden brown.
