Whole-Wheat Pita Chips with Mascarpone-Chive Dipping Sauce

I needed a yummy savory dip to take to a party and this was perfect. Little Foodie tested it out when she got home from school and she thought it was "soooo YUMMY"! Sorry I don't have a pick but trust me it is awesome!! This recipe was found on Foodnetwork.com.

  • 4 whole-wheat pita breads, halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus extra for seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus extra for seasoning
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked until crisp, finely chopped
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives


Place an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F.

Cut each pita half into 4 wedges. Arrange the pita wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush with the oil, then sprinkle with the oregano, salt and pepper. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes until crisp and golden.

In a medium bowl, combine the bacon, mascarpone cheese, sour cream, and chives. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl.

Arrange the pita chips and dip on a platter and serve.
