I think we were only supposed to use butter or jelly as a topping but, being the rebel that I am, chose to go with cream cheese. After a few weeks I decided that I was going to go one step farther and add some bacon. It was that chintzy pre-cooked kind which could not have cost all that much so what was the harm really? And I just used a couple of slices. I thought I was going to hate it but I really wanted the added protein so I would actually not be really hungry every time I worked.
Turns out I found this sandwich to be delicious. For calorie counting purposes, I started making it on pita bread. Give it a try, you might just love it too!
Bacon-Cream Cheese Sandwiches
- 1 loaf pita bread
- 2 Tbsp 1/3 fat cream cheese ("neufchatel")
- 2 slices pre-cooked bacon
1) Cook bacon in microwave.
2) Lightly toast mini pita and set on a plate. If you don't have a toaster oven or are using pitas too big for a toaster you can skip the toasting.
4) Add bacon to one side, breaking in half if needed in order to fit better.
5) Fold in half and enjoy!
