Cooking With Heinen’s | Grab & Go Breakfast Pita

Cooking With Heinen’s | Grab & Go Breakfast Pita

Looking for a foolproof way to start your day on the right note? This protein-packed combination of egg and hummus will do the trick.

Perfect for a breakfast on the go, pita pockets make a great vehicle for all these delicious ingredients. Eggs, feta, arugula, cucumber, tomato and zatar combine to make a fresh, nutritious breakfast with a mediterranean twist. Today I used Maplebrook Smoked Feta Cheese.The smokey flavor aded a delicious element to this flavor line up.

This couldn’t be easier. Pita pockets make everything portable. Just fill it and go. Hard boiled eggs are also a fast, easy and portable protein. How do you make them? I learned during a trip to France. I grew up putting the eggs in the cold water then bringing the water an eggs to a boil, then allowing it to boil for far too long. This created a completely cooked and lifeless HARD boiled egg. I learned that the best method is to gently place the room temperature eggs into boiling water and let them cook for 7 minutes, then drain and run cold water over the eggs to stop the cooking process. This results in a smooth, creamy flavorful egg.

Mediterranean Breakfast Pitas

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • Salt
  • 2 whole-wheat pita breads with pockets, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup hummus (4 ounces)
  • 4oz crumbled Maplebrook Smoked Feta Cheese
  • 1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 2 medium tomatoes, large dice or 12 grape tomatoes
  • Handful of fresh parsley leaves and baby arugula
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 TBS zatar

METHOD

  • Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Gently place your room-temperature eggs in the water and cook for 7 minutes. Drain the water and run the eggs under cold water to cool. Peel the eggs and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Sprinkle with salt and set aside.
  • Spread the inside of each pita pocket with 2 tablespoons of hummus.
    Place crumbled Feta, arugula and a few cucumber slices and some diced tomato into each pita. Tuck 1 sliced egg into each pita and sprinkle with zatar.

Enjoy!
