Breakfast Pita

Start your day right with this handy and portable breakfast sandwich, which just as easily becomes the centerpiece of a more leisurely sit-down breakfast when you can relax over the morning newspaper. Plenty of steaming hot coffee and fresh fruit complete the repast.



Ingredient Line: 
1 7-inch pita bread
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. butter or soy margarine
Ingredient Line: 
2 oz. soy 'sausage'
Ingredient Line: 
2 scallions, thinly sliced
Ingredient Line: 
2 oz. white mushrooms, thinly sliced
Ingredient Line: 
2 large eggs
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. heavy cream, optional
Ingredient Line: 
1 oz. shredded soy cheese
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. ranch salad dressing


  1. Warm pita in oven, and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. When warm, add soy "sausage," and crumble. Add scallions and mushrooms, and sauté for 5 minutes.
  3. Combine eggs, heavy cream, if using, shredded cheese, and salt and pepper, stirring well. Reduce heat to medium-low, and stir in egg mixture. Continue stirring slowly until eggs set, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
