In this easy baked kofta pita sandwich we have, flavor-packed ground lamb (or beef, if you prefer) patties, loaded on top of Greek pita with hummus spread, fresh veggies, and olives. A great weeknight option, or a make-your-own-sandwich bar for your next party! Step-by-step tutorial included.
The idea for this baked kofta pita sandwich came together last-minute, on a day when my routine was a bit out of sorts. Without much of a plan for dinner, I decided it needed to be sandwich night.
Where the draw lies in this pita sandwich dinner is in its simplicity–everything is piled on top of a warm Greek pita. Easy, but far from plain.
The baked kofta here takes inspiration from Adana, a large city in southern Turkey. My first introduction to Adana kofta was at a small Turkish restaurant here in Atlanta, and I have gone back a dozen times since! So, I finally decided to try my hand at a homemade version.
