Bacon Cheesy Whole-Wheat Pita Pockets

There is something fabulous about being able to hold a meal in your hands. These mini pita pockets are the perfect size for kids and just as wonderful for adults. Beware: They may be small, but they are hard to stop eating. Make a few for lunch and a few more for a snack. Use any cheese you like, but a slightly sharp Cheddar is a classic pairing with the bacon and creamy avocado.

In a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Blot with paper towels. Meanwhile, slice the avocado and toss the pieces with some lemon juice to prevent browning.

Stuff the mini pita pockets with the cheese, avocado, and cooked bacon. Toast the stuffed pita pockets for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and gooey.
