  • 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
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 1 whole wheat pita pocket cut in half
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  • 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.

    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?

  3. Suzanne  September 7, 2013

    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?

    • SkinnyMs  April 7, 2014

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

    I don’t like feta cheeses or crumbs. What can I use in its place??

    • Jennifer Hanford  November 12, 2017

      Hi, Denise. You can substitute with Ricotta if you prefer. Or it would be fine to leave it out entirely.

    how would the calorie count change if use a whole egg and not just egg whites if that can be done?

    • Gale Compton  April 7, 2019

      The calories would go up by about 61. Hope this helps. 🙂

  9. Shelley  June 18, 2020

    Have you tried freezing and reheating these? Any tips on the best way to reheat?

    • Gale Compton  June 19, 2020

      Shelley, I haven’t tried freezing the pita sandwich. If you do this is my recommendation: Place in a ziplock freezer type bag, thaw in the fridge, reheat in a 350 degree oven until heated through, about 15 minutes.
