Blue Cheese and Bacon Pitas

What is it about pitas that is so appealing?

For some reason, I just love the idea of tucking my entire meal into a little bread pocket.

(Of course, the reality is that half the time you end up ripping a hole in said bread pocket and the entire meal ends up on your plate, but let’s pretend that NEVER happens).

I started making this blue cheese and bacon pita recipe when we lived in Boston, more than six years ago, and it’s stayed in the rotation since then.

Ella doesn’t love blue cheese, but she’ll eat it in this form, since it’s softened considerably by the yogurt and mayo.

Ani, on the other hand, will eat the entire container of straight blue cheese while I’m making dinner, if I don’t keep a close eye on her. That girl has never met a cheese she doesn’t like.

    Your big kids' eating habits mirror my big kids' eating habits. Ike isn't horribly picky, but he is more hesitant about more things. Felix regularly tells people he meets, 'I eat everyfink." And it's true.
