Recipe: Herbed Cream Cheese Stuffed Pitas

21 Oct

This is one of my family’s favorite things to eat.  My girls love it with spaghetti, bean salad or as a snack.  I recently made some and put in their lunch boxes as a replacement to the typical sandwich.  They were so happy when they opened their lunch box and found these instead of a plain boring sandwich.  It also makes a great after school snack.  To make these even better, try them with homemade pitas.

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

Herbed Cream Cheese Stuffed Pita
1 tub onion and chive cream cheese

4 pitas, halved
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt

Heat a griddle or pan that has been lightly sprayed.  Mix olive oil and salt in a small bowl.  Spread cream cheese in each pita pocket.  You can be as generous or as light as you like.  Brush a small amount of olive oil on both sides of the pitas.  Place pitas in the pan and cook on each side until they are golden brown and the cream cheese is heated through.  Keep the pitas warm until all are cooked and you are ready to serve.  I like mine warm, my children like them warm or room temperature.
