Sunny Fried Eggs & Pita

A super easy, super yummy breakfast with some fruit on the side, or light dinner with greens on the side. This little sandwich is ready in minutes and is really satisfying! The warm and fluffy pita holds the eggs like it was made for the job, and catches the yolks perfectly when they run a little bit.

This week, these egg pitas were dinner. On the evenings when M is on call at the hospital, I spend more time on things other than cooking, like letting Carlin play at the dog park or puttering around the apartment cleaning up. Somehow, there's a bit more purpose to cooking dinner when there is someone else to enjoy it with. And, although I spend much less time preparing my own dinner, it doesn't mean it is any less tasty . It's just different. Okay, I'll admit to eating four bowls of cereal in milk for dinner when I'm on my own. On more than one occasion. Cereal is just divine. But in an effort to prepare myself a simple, yet still nutritious and thoughtful meal, eggs are another go-to. Breakfast is the best meal of the day, and when I have it for dinner again it's a total treat!

Sunny Fried Egg Pita Pocket: (serves 1)
1/4 white onion, sliced or chopped
1 T olive oil
2 large eggs, brought to room temperature
1 T. Earth Balance butter
Salt & Pepper to taste
Feta Cheese, crumbled, optional
Any additional veggies you have on hand

Directions: Pour the olive oil into a medium sized pan and bring it up to medium-high heat. Add the onions and allow to saute lightly for a few minutes. Add any other desired veggies, too, and let them saute for a minute. Crack both eggs over the onions and allow them to fry until lightly browned. Season with salt & pepper. Flip the eggs over, turn off the heat. Place the pita pocket over the eggs in the pan to allow it to warm up and absorb some of the moisture and become fluffy. Carefully open one side of the pita pocket and lightly butter the inside. If desired, put the crumbled feta cheese inside, then transfer both eggs and the onions into the pita pocket with a spatula. Enjoy!
