Helpful hints

  • Koko sandwich can be baked instead of fried. Heat oven to 350° F, place mixture in an oiled baking dish and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until top is golden brown. Cut into 4 portions.
  • If desired, lavash bread, flour tortilla or white bread may be used in place of the pita bread.
  • Use 1-1/4 cup low cholesterol egg product instead of eggs for a low cholesterol dish.
