Kofta Stuffed flat bread || Kitchen Quickie

So here's a quick brunch recipe idea I came up with on a hungry Sunday morning. We woke up starving and needed something quick and easy but also filling.
This recipe reminds me of the Sfiha, a Lebanese flatbread I used to buy on Fridays at the Perth central mosque.
But unlike the Sfiha, this recipe uses ready made Lebanese bread and leftover frozen kofta, making it faster and easier but very identical in taste.
For the filling, I used some left over kofta mince (raw) which i stir fried over medium heat and added some chopped celery, extra parsley, chilli paste, and teensy bit of tomato paste, giving it a sauce like consistency.
I took 4 pita bread out of the freezer and defrosted them on a hot pan then scooped spoonfuls on one side of the bread and flipped it over it with the kofta filling
The meal was served with some olives and garnished with parsley leaves.
I Stacked up the folded breads and cut them in half. Ended up with 8 quarters, more than enough for 2 - 3 people.
That's it! Breakfast was served in about 15 minutes!
If you don't have kofta mince, you can substitute with frozen meat balls (which you'll smash as you stir fry) or even use raw beef/lamb/chicken mince which you'll have to season to bring out the flavour. If you're using raw mince I recommend seasoning with black pepper, salt, coriander, oregano or parsley and lime juice.
