    I got this in my email inbox today and can't wait to try it. My only wish is that it had come out earlier in the summer when strawberries were in full season. Perhaps Chef Meg could begin making the recipe of the day something more in tune with the current seasons? I would love that! - 9/23/09

    I love strawberries and I love cream cheese so it's no wonder I loved this recipe. I forgot to grill it after making up the sandwiches, I multiplied the recipe to share with my family. It was great even cold like that! - 2/25/10

    Ideas from other Sparkers
    Can use Raisin Bread, Bagels,and Whole Wheat Bread.
    Can use Walnuts, Pineapples, Blueberries, Bananas
    Use Peanut Butter instead of Cream Cheese - 9/26/10

    This just did not taste very good at all. The cream cheese on the whole wheat pita was unappetizing. Too sweet. - 12/28/09

    Dessert nothing! I had this for lunch and it is awesome! Even if the pita falls apart (which mine did, as I have issues opening pitas) it's still excellent. - 6/22/10

    Used to make this with strawberry jam and loved it. Fresh strawberry's and reduced fat cream cheese keeps the wonderful taste while making it down-right healthier. Thanks. - 9/29/09

    I must admit I was skeptical at first...strawberries and cream cheesed seemed kinda yuck. But I had the stuff in the house and so I figured I'd try it. It was GREAT! The warm strawberries and the cream cheese were melt in your mouth! YUM YUM YUM :) - 5/21/10

    This made a great breakfast. I did add 1 tsp. of sugar to the cream cheese/strawberry mixture. It was a little too tart for me. Otherwise, great! - 5/8/10
