DIY mini French doors

We are framing a RO for a 30" pantry door. My intent was a simple wood 6 panel door but wife didn't like that. She suggested bifold. I really dislike bifold so we compromised on a French door design.

My question is can I buy bifold doors and hinge them to the jambs and hang them as French doors? What's best wood or masonite? I no longer have a table saw so cutting a couple of small slabs out of a larger 6 panel probably isn't going to happen.

Absolutely! If the hinges are already mortised, swap the door positions so the hinged sides are at the jamb.
