"Pita bread rounds are spread with cream cheese, and rolled with a slice of bacon. Make sure you get the first one because they don't last long!" — MACKENZIE318

bacon, cut in half

1 (10 ounce) package
pita bread rounds
Oh my goodness! These things are amazing! I had my doubts at first but...wow. I made a bunch of them ahead of time and kept them in my fridge overnight. ( I found 1/2 brick of 8oz. cream cheese covered one pita bread.)I then cooked them in my toaster oven the day of my party. ( I had other things baking at the time so I couldn't use my oven) I baked them longer than called for in the recipe, as I like my bacon brown and slightly crisp. I accidentally forgot the last batch and the bacon burned....but even that didn't hurt these things! They were still delicious! Thanks Machenzie!
I have been making something similar to these for yrs, but I use 1 loaf of Wonder white bread, and 8 oz. cream cheese left at room temp. Cut all of the crust off bread. Spread each slice of bread lighly with cream cheese. Cut slice of bread in half and roll up. Wrap a half of pre-cooked bacon around each half. No need to use toothpicks, just place on baking sheet with seem side down, and bake 5-10 min., or until bread starts to brown. Absolutely delicious :)
Very, very good. I partly cook the bacon before making so it comes out fully cooked.
I also agree that this recipe only needs 1 package of cream cheese. Something my husband and I have done with this is to add food coloring for holidays. So, when the Colts played the superbowl, we dyed the cream cheese blue, and for Halloween, we dyed it orange, etc. It's a fun way to make these really festive!
I thought these were great! I had some friends over and they liked them but thought chive cream cheese would be even better! I agree.... but the are good.
Most amazing meal EVER to exist in the history of cooking and bacon.
I also pre-cooked the bacon. I added freeze-dried chives and onions to the cream cheese and it added some flavor. I baked the pieces in the oven on 425 for about 5 min on each side. (I like my bacon crispy.) Do a test first to see what works best for your oven.
SO SO SO GOOD,I added a bit of fresh chives to the cream cheese and it was wonderful just a little extra flavor. And I agree with others to cook the bacon part way first.
