Egg and Cheese Pita

This month’s Recipe ReDux theme is: Rise and Shine with a Savory Breakfast: The trend of protein-packed breakfasts is catching on…and back-to-school time is looming. This month, show us new healthy takes on eating savory or dinner-inspired dishes for breakfast. 

When it comes to a quick, easy, and cheap form of vegetarian protein, my first thought is always eggs. They’re convenient, they’re delicious, and they are perfect for this theme! 🙂

This egg and cheese pita is kind of a mix between a breakfast burrito and an Egg McMuffin, but with some additional twists from the pita and hummus. There are only five ingredients, so you can keep it simple or customize it to make it fancier. No matter which way you go, it’s a satisfying breakfast that will keep you full and happy until lunch!

  3. Spread a tablespoon of hummus inside each of the pita halves.
