Frugal Friday...Parmasean Triangles

Do you find yourself making frequent trips to the store for one item and coming home with several bags of groceries you didn't know you *needed*?
We've had that happen before and especially just as we're preparing for company.  Parmasean Triangles are one of the recipes we've used, over the years, as a sort of emergency bread to have on hand in order to avoid some of those unexpected and expensive trips to town.
They're good with any sort of meal but we especially enjoy them with Italian type dishes.
We first made them, many years ago, with bits of our biscuit dough.  We would take a biscuit sized bit of dough and flatten it like a pancake.  Then we would spread the mixture on top and put them in the oven.  Next we tried using our whole wheat bread dough and those were also very popular at our house.  But for *emergencies*, we've found that we like to keep tortillas on hand, either fresh or frozen.  Making your own is much cheaper but store bought are also good.
When we're preparing a meal and realize someone's eaten up all the bread, these are a snap to put together and get in the oven.  We make sure and have the following items on hand:  whole wheat tortillas, 1/2 cup parmasean cheese, 1 cup mayo, some Italian seasoning and garlic powder.  Mix the above ingredients in a bowl, spread a tablespoon or more on each tortilla, place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 till golden on top.  Take out, allow to cool for a few minutes and cut each tortilla into four pieces with a pizza cutter.  Enjoy.:)  Blessings to you and yours!
