A batbout is the Moroccan flat bread which is found throughout their cuisine, it is eaten as an accompaniment usually cut down the middle horizontally and filled with various filling, it makes a great quick lunch and is even eaten for breakfast. They are sometimes compared to pittas bread but are quite different as unlike pitta breads they are cooked using a skittle or griddle pan and once cooked they have a soft and chewy texture.
