Pita & Scrambled Eggs

Regular egg sandwiches are made with a fried egg; but what if you want scrambled eggs? Too messy, as scrambles eggs tumble into you lap as soon as you take a bite of your sandwich. Well the Chef has a solution, and it is to scoop your favorite scrambled egg recipe into a warm pita. No egg-spillage here!


It is safe enough to carry in the car. Now I would not normally recommend you eat and drive (just click here to see my precautionary PSA video on "Eating & Driving"), but my Pita & Scrambled Eggs is an exception. It is neat and deliciously portable.

I make my scrambled eggs with sundried tomatoes and sauteed mushrooms. Use your favorite ingredients - how about a little cheese in your scrambled eggs? Then stuff the pita with lettuce, tomato and mayo?

Whole Wheat Pita Bread has been turning up at my local 99c only Store, so I always have some on hand. It is a budget item you can get at any grocery. Warm them on the grill as you scramble your eggs.

Ingredients ( 2 pita pockets )
  • 1 whole pita spit in half
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 4 whole button mushrooms - sliced
  • Sundried tomatoes with oil - about 2 tablespoons, sliced.
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • * 1 tbsp. oil for sauteing mushrooms if you are not using sundried tomatoes.
  • Other options include: cheese, spinach, cooked bacon and sausage. Just use your favorite scrambled egg recipe.


Directions
For a mushroom/sundried tomato scramble: Add sundried tomatoes with oil to a medium hot pan and saute mushrooms until soft, about 5 minutes. Begin to heat pita bread on grill or in a toaster - pita just needs a slight brown, it is thin so it will heat up quickly. And pita pockets will open easier (without tearing) when warm.

Next separate 2-3 eggs from shell and add to mushroom/sundried tomato mix. Scramble egg mixture until done.

Open each pita and fill with cooked scrambled eggs. You can add mayo, lettuce and tomato to your Pita & Scrambled Eggs.


Make the Chef's breakfast pita your own by cooking your favorite scrambled egg recipe!
