Bacon and Cream Cheese Rolls

    40 min

    Pitta is spread with cream cheese, and rolled with a slice of bacon. They come out of the oven warm and crispy. Make sure you get the first one because they don't last long!

    Very good snack -makes a happy husband  -  26 Feb 2011


    Simple, delicious, and yes, a husband's favourite. I decided to add a little variety by adding chives to some of the cream cheese in the pittas and some basil in another. It's wonderful no matter what!  -  17 Feb 2012


    Oh my goodness! These things are amazing! I had my doubts at first 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!  -  01 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
