When I found out that the Recipe Redux was hosting a recipe contest sponsored by Toufayan, I knew I had to enter! Pita bread is one of my favorites to use instead of regular bread. And although people may often associate pita bread with sandwiches, my recipe shows that you can use pita bread in a completely new way!

At this point I decided to do a little experiment by taking a regular sodium-rich bacon and swapping it for low sodium bacon to see how it would turn out. By using low sodium bacon and low carb {lower sodium} pitas, the sodium content of the recipe is cut by 325 mg! The dish I chose? Sweet Maple Bacon Pita Chips! After all, it is NCAA March Madness, {Go UCONN women!!} and sweet bacon crisps are always a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!

As a matter of fact, they are highly addictive and extremely delicious. Smoky, sweet, crunchy, buttery, chewy — the perfect conglomerate of omg YESSS. Incidentally, it only has five simple ingredients, all of which you probably have in your pantry right now. In my opinion, it makes for a quick appetizer, a great snack, or even an entrée — zero judgement. And you can switch it up to suit your tastes! Add a topping of peanut butter drizzle for a touch of creaminess, or add a some dark chocolate chips for some sweetness. Ultimately, the sky is the limit my friends.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet (like a 15x10) with parchment paper and lightly grease the parchment with cooking spray. Set aside. Cut 3 pita pockets in half lengthwise into discs. Melt 1/2 a stick of butter. Lightly brush the pitas with some of the melted butter.
  2. Meanwhile, cook your bacon. I like baking mine, but you can fry it - whichever you prefer. Cook it until it's technically safe enough to eat and just about done, but still lighter in color and not quite crispy. You don't want it fully cooked and crispy as it will continue to cook in the oven. I pulled mine out of the oven right when they were a medium-pink color. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate.
  3. Microwave or stove top the maple syrup, remaining butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract until hot bubbly and dissolved. Top pitas with torn pieces of the cooked bacon. Pour liquid over the pita breads.
  4. Bake at 350 for approx. 25 minutes or until bubbling and caramelized. Remove from the oven and allow the pan to cool or warm to the touch before cutting or breaking into pieces. You can serve this at room temperature or slightly warmed. It tastes best the day of, but can be eaten the next day if stored airtight.
