RECIPE: A Back-to-school favorite!

Now that back-to-school season is in full gear, I wanted to pass along this delicious kid-friendly, and not to mention quick, recipe that the whole family can enjoy. Since fall is an incredibly busy time of the year for most moms and dads, there usually isn’t much time for cooking a healthy and hearty meal for dinner during the weeknights. This kid-favorite recipe courtesy of WearEver for Four Cheese Pita Pockets is a healthier version of one of our favorite foods and can be whipped up in minutes. The best part is that you can pack leftovers for lunch the next day!

WearEver’s new Cast Lite Fry Pan is made of cast aluminum, which is 50% lighter material than normal cast-iron cookware. WearEver Cast Lite Fry Pan offers the “home cook” professional-level searing and deglazing of foods that comes with using a cast pan, yet the easy-to-use and dishwasher-safe features of a non-stick interior. The Cast Lite Fry Pan is now available at Walmart and Amazon.com.

1. In a bowl, stir together the cheeses, basil, oregano and pepper.

2. Cut the break halfway around the edge, fill with the cheese mixture.

3. Spray your WearEver Cast Lite Fry Pan with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Grill the sandwiches until the cheese melts. Cut in half.
