Breakfast Pita | Abeer’s Day Off

breakfast pita 2Breakfast! Ok, now that I have your attention, I’ll share a little secret…I’ve always had a weird love/hate relationship with breakfast. So, I love breakfast food, but I was never a huge fan of eating in the morning as soon as I woke up. I’m more the wake up to a warm cup of coffee and lounge around for a bit until I have to get on the road to work. So on most days, my breakfast is something simple like fruit or toast. Let’s just say a lot of my breakfast recipes usually end up being cooked for brunch, lunch, or dinner! Luckily, this recipe for my Breakfast Pita is an easy one you can throw together for yourself or make for a crowd any day of the week! Check out the video and get the full recipe below!

I love eggs. They’re obviously an amazing and cheap source of protein, but I love them for how versatile they are. My favorite way to have eggs is when they’re somewhere around medium-whites cooked through and yolk nice and runny! My mom made these Breakfast Pitas for us on weekends when we were growing up. She would lightly whisk the eggs, pour it over soft pitas, and cook them under the broiler just enough so the whites were cooked but the yolks weren’t fully set and hard. I can still remember how comforting the first bite was combining toasty bread and creamy eggs all brought together with a generous sprinkle of salt right after they came out of the oven!

I put my own twist on this recipe and added some toppings. You can go classic and just use eggs or get creative! The combinations I made in this video are in the ingredient listing below. Like with any recipe where the ingredients are minimal, it’s important to use the best quality you can get. So get some good eggs (preferably organic or pasture raised), fresh veggies, meats, and flavorful cheeses. If you’re having people over or have a big family, everyone can make their own style of Breakfast Pita-and everyone is happy that way! Make your Breakfast Pitas this weekend and share a photo of how they turned out! Enjoy!

Breakfast Pita

Prep Time: 15 minutes     Cook Time: 5 minutes     Yields: 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 whole pita bread
  • salt & pepper

Toppings:

  • grape tomatoes & feta cheese
  • sausage, cheddar & jalapeno
  • mushroom & green onions

Instructions:

Preheat your broiler. Arrange your pita on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Whisk your eggs and prepare any of the ingredient toppings. Lightly push down on the center of the pita to create a little well. Pour about half of your egg mixture on to the center of the pita. Sprinkle your toppings and pour the remaining egg on top.

Carefully put your baking sheet under the broiler (the eggs are runny and spill over easily). Cook for about 2-5 minutes depending on how hot your broiler is. Keep your eyes on them and don’t walk away! When the eggs are cooked to your liking and the bread is toasted, remove them from the oven. Finish them with coarse salt and pepper. Enjoy!
