We go to help our granddaughter conduct a yard sale recently and stop at a supermarket for a few groceries. While there my BW spots a sale on pita bread and we buy some.
So yesterday she wants her breakfast and requests the oft asked for cheese eggs. I said “OK” and then she says “with mushrooms”. I’m almost out of the room but said “OK”. Approaching the kitchen I faintly hear her say “and tomatoes”. I holler back” OK”. I’m getting out the equipment and in a few moments she glides into the kitchen adroitly and asks for bacon with it. I said “OK”, and as she leaves the kitchen she deftly pivots and asks for a little chopped raw red onion on it and to have it in pita bread. I said “OK” as I got some more groceries from the icebox. I double checked the order with her and proceeded to prepare it.
She loves the delightfully pleasant aromatic sandwich and raves about the superb taste. I want to share this with you because if the Education Tipster likes it (with her discriminating taste), you probably will too.
Pita Breakfast Sandwich serves one
1 loaf of pita bread
2 eggs, beaten
2 slices bacon cooked crisply
½ cup sliced mushrooms
½ tomato diced
1 slice red onion, diced
½ cup shredded Asiago cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook the bacon, put a screen over the skillet and lay the pitas on it to gently warm them
While the bacon is crisping, shred the cheese and dice the tomato and onion. Put them in a bowl
Slice the mushrooms, add to the bowl and divide the pita bread into two halves
Open the pita halves like a taco shell
In a warm skillet over medium heat, containing a little bacon fat, or butter, or light olive oil, put in the beaten eggs
Evenly distribute the cheese, tomato, mushrooms and crumbled bacon atop the eggs
Add salt and pepper
After a few moments you’ll see the eggs setting a little at the edges lift up some edges and let egg run underneath. Start scrambling the entire mixture until it is fully cooked.
Put half of the eggs into each pita half and top with the red onion.
It’s not an egg Mac’muffin, it’s much better.
