Artichoke Heart and Ham Topped Pita CrispsWalt & Catherine

3 6-inch pita breads
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped
1/2 cup smoked ham, chopped
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cut pitas in half horizontally to make 6 rounds
. Place smooth side down on large baking sheet.
Combine melted butter, mustard, thyme, oregano and cayenne pepper. Brush evenly over pita rounds.
Bake in preheated 400-degree oven for 2 minutes.
Sprinkle artichoke and ham pieces evenly over pitas. Top with cheese.
Return to oven for 8 minutes or until crisp.
Cut in quarters while still warm. Serve immediately or cool, then pile on plate, cover and refrigerate.

To reheat, place in a single layer on baking sheet and bake in preheated 350-degree oven for approximately 5 minutes. Can be assembled and baked ahead of time so they only need the 5 minute reheat.
