Making The Perfect Breakfast Pita

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but most of us just don’t do breakfast right. Common excuses are not having enough time, and in many cases, having a diet regimen that limits or eliminates breakfast options.

With that being said, doing breakfast the quick and healthy way isn’t that hard at all This recipe incorporates breakfast staples (sausage and cheese) with healthier options (egg whites and spinach). Instead of fatty egg yolks, the sausage and the cheese provide the majority of the fat, while the egg whites supply additional protein. The result? A delicious breakfast in under 10 minutes! Here’s the recipe.

  • 1 whole wheat pita, cut in half
  • ½ cup liquid egg whites
  • ½ chicken sausage diced
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • ¼ c diced onion
  • 1 tbsp. shredded parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, for sautéing
  • Sea salt & pepper, to taste
  • Tomato, sliced, optional

Breakfast Pita Directions

  1. Add the onions and sausage in a pan. Stir and let sausage edges brown and the onions caramelize for a few minutes. Then add the spinach.
  2. Stir. Once the spinach has wilted, add the liquid egg whites and scramble.
  3. Season the scramble with garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper, along with any type of seasoning you like to use on your eggs. Sprinkle on the cheese and stuff it all into each pita pocket.
