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.

My Journey With Candida said...

I love Pita Bread and can finally eat it again. Yummmm... the ingredients sound great too.

I am going to have to train my Hubs to take orders like you do. What a life for the wife. Ha! I'm a poet and didn't know it.

anthony stemke said...

AL: Yeah, but that bran is a mighty powerful breakfast, if you know what I mean.

JOANNE: I'm OK, she is special. Falafel, that goes great in pitas with a cucumberish dressing. Thank You.

SIMMY: Yes, pitas are good,we buy them when on sale. Thanks for calling.

THE JUNKIE BOOK: Asiago cheese is a firm cow's milk cheese, milder-flavoured than parmesan, gratable and we put in salads and pastas and atop pizza.

MY JOURNEY: As my BW says,"...he came that way".
I'm glad you can enjoy bread again.

Okay, skip the egg (SOMEDAY someone will make a good vegan egg substitute) and use vegetarian items for bacon and cheese, and I can make this!

Vardhini said...

Sandwich looks filling and yummy.

I have used flaxseed in pancakes and did not like its texture. It became rubbery .. I felt. Due to that fear I am yet to try it in bread or cakes :) Will try it in future for sure.


anthony stemke said...

L. DIANE: Oops, this is a tough one dear. You can always substitute one or two animal products, but bacon, cheese and egg? Thats a tough one. Tofu for the egg maybe, but bacon is not easily substituted. Please forgive me.

VARDHINI: Now I meant flaxseed MEAL, not the seed. Here is a great recipe.

Vardhini said...

Will try it out soon and let u know how it turned out. Thx.


Leovi said...

I haven't had puta bread in years. I usually wrap my breakfast fixins' in a flour tortilla. But now you have my taste buds salvitating (is that even a word???)

I'll stop by the local Ranch Market and pick up some pita bread this weekend. Change is good. I look forward to a breakfast pita!

Kalyan P said...

Just mouthwatering and inviting...looks so easy to prepare and delicious!

anthony stemke said...

JAY; Thank you for those kind words.

TORVIEW: Thank You for calling.

STEPHEN: My spouse, the Education Tipster, loves wraps too(any kind of bread actually). Yeah, it's a word, I usually spell it salavating, but a rose by any other name is whatever you want to call it. I think.
Pita is very versatile, stay tuned.

KALYAN: You are so right in every way. Thank You.

Pegasuslegend said...

oh yummy!

anthony stemke said...

PEGASUS: My spouse, the Education Tipster, raved about it.

Nicki Elson said...

I like that half-scramble thing you do. And the tip for heating the pitas. I'll remember to tell my husband to do that next time, hehe.

anthony stemke said...

NICKI: He shouldn't have any trouble serving you this breakfast fancy, make sure you have your tray ready.
And good luck with 3 daves.
