A Back-to-School Potluck with the Entire Food Community


We're bringing these delicious bacon pita pockets to the table. What would you bring?

The scent of fall is in the air, and if you're a parent, back-to-school lunches are on your mind. We’re constantly on the search for new and delicious ideas. To get into the spirit, we’re joining a virtual potluck with the Food Network to share and exchange great recipes and strategies.

This year, we’re bringing Bacon Cheesy Whole-Wheat Pita Pockets to the table. These pitas are healthy but definitely treat the taste buds well with a combination of sharp Cheddar cheese and buttery avocado made even better with bacon. We all know kids love bacon, so this recipe is the perfect way to give them what they want while also offering them a taste of nutrition as well.
