Reviews for Party Pitas
"This was easy to put together for a party, being able to assemble in advance. Loved the flavor aon the completed sandwich."
"Good sandwich; great spread. We put ours on Rye and Pump bread since the store didn't have any pitas. Still fantastic."
"I certainly would make this recipe again. However I would make some changes.I felt that the cream cheese spread needs some additional spices. It seemed very bland and slightly over powering. I added chopped scallions and Black Pepper to it and I made it up well in advance so that the flavors could Mature. No taste of the dill weed at all. I think some Beau Monde would be a great addition and that would certainly compliment the Cream Cheese.Love the presentation. Perfect sized appetizers."
"Excellent, and very easy!"
"THIS ALSO IS GREAT WITH SANDWICH THINS INSTEAD OF PITA, AND A LOT EASIER TO WORK WITH."
"very easy and fast to make. i prepared this recently for 40 people and they loved them."
"quick, easy, and delicious!"
"I used lettuce as well - and had requests to make them again for an up-coming gathering. Very good!"
"I made a platter of these little party pitas for my auxiliary luncheon snack and all the women came back for seconds and all wanted the recipe. I didn't have any spinach on hand so I substituted lettace leaves. Fast AND easty is my thing. Have a winner here. Thank you Taste of Home. Barb Stephens"
