Recipe by Elsie
"Pita bread sandwiches with scrambled eggs and potatoes. Very quick. I sometimes make it for myself when I'm rushed. This recipe is great for using up leftovers, and is very versatile: you can add any other seasonings you like, and you can use egg substitute if you prefer."

cooked and diced potatoes
Great recipe for a "Quick Breakfast"! I made this for my husband to take to work. I added just a touch of milk to the eggs to get them nice and fluffy. I also used the recipe for "Herbie's Home Fries" on this site to add a little pizzaz to "cooked and diced" potatoes. All that was left to do was add some cheddar cheese and ham. This is a great base for whatever add-in's such as cheeses, veggies, or breakfast meats you choose. Definitely a great "on-the-go" breakfast meal!
Not bad, a little dry. Much improved by topping with chunky salsa.
I've made a dish like this before but my boyfriend doesn't eat eggs. Crumbled up, sauteed tofu (with garlic, onion and spices) makes a delicious subsitute for the egg. Yum yum!
Very good. I cook my potatoes with garlic, onion, and a touch of olive oil. I also add bacon, cheese, and avocado. My husband loves these!! And my two and half year old too!YUM!
This was okay but the potatoes made the pita really dense. I thought it would be better with the scrambled eggs and something like tomato or broccoli. Then serve the potatoes on the side. But the pita was very filling with the potatoes so it is good for a hearty breakfast.
We made this as is, except added another egg for 1 1/2 per person. Well, I have to say that I was blown away! Not that this recipe is all that complex, but the idea is so gooooood. Don't know why, it just seemed to sit well with me. Very well! Oh, and make sure to let the potatoes get nice and brown- that seemed to add a lot of flavor.
My husband loved this recipe...if you don't add any "extras" it's a wonderful low point Weight watchers breakfast!
A good recipe, but it can be made much better by adding chopped cooked bacon, sausage patty or link into the skillet when cooking the eggs. Divide the egg minture into the pitas and top with a little shredded cheese. Much more flavor! For a lower calorie/less fat version, I've also make these with egg substitute and veggie sausage patties or bacon. If I'm out of pita bread, I've used toasted English muffins instead. Very versatile recipe!!
