Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup baby spinach torn into small pieces
  • 4 grape tomatoes sliced in half lengthwise
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup Feta cheese crumbles
  • 1 whole wheat pita pocket, cut in half
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, spinach, tomatoes, green onions, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour egg mixture into an 8” non-stick skillet, place in oven on middle rack. Brush both sides of each pita half with olive oil, place on foil and warm in the oven during the last 2 minutes of cooking time. Cook eggs approximately 15 to 18 minutes or until puffy and just set in the center, but not hard. Sprinkle on the feta cheese and return to the oven for one more minute.

Remove skillet from oven, cut omelet in half and place each half in a pita pocket. Press edges into warm pita and serve immediately.

    This is a wonderful goto breakfast or lunch! I love making it on weekends and then heating it up in the morning when I'm in a hurry!

    could you bake the egg mixture in the peeta bread? or would that burn the bread?

    The egg mixture wouldn't hold its shape if you put it in the bread uncooked. That'd be a big soggy mess. But this could definitely be made ahead of time and frozen, then reheated in the microwave!

    How would I bake this in the oven if the handles on my pan are not oven safe? Any other way to do this?

      Yes, spray a square baking dish or pie dish with cooking oil and bake it in that. Enjoy!
