Ara'yes Grilled Pita And Kifteh Sandwiches

Feast.in.the.Middle.East's picture
Ara’yes, literally means bride and groom, because the warm ground meat nestled in the crunchy pita bread are the colors black and white. You can use ground lamb, turkey, chicken or beef for this sandwich. The juice of the meat flavors the bread so no condiments are really required. But if you must, a garlicky yogurt sauce or hummus would be nice dipping accompaniments.

Story
The silhouette of a bride and groom locked in a tender embrace is undeniably romantic. The feminine white billowy dress pressed against the sharper lines of the dark and masculine tuxedo is celebrated universally--captured in photo albums around the world. No better reason than to commemorate this embrace with a sandwich! I guess you can call these dressy tuxedo/gown sandwiches! Because of the theme, these sandwiches would be great for a bridal shower or engagement party. But you can dress down this sandwich for casual fair as well. I actually pack these in my children’s lunches by cutting them into triangles, heating them up, and putting them in a thermos. These also make great campfire sandwiches, in that you can prepare them in advance and cook them over the fire or grill until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
