Easy Breakfast Pita Recipe

  • Author: Katie Webster
  • Total Time: 8 Minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


These 8-minute Breakfast Pitas are a great way to pack protein and veggies into your morning meal. They are made with scrambled eggs, roasted red peppers, scallion and spinach topped with melted cheese, Everything Bagel Seasoning and hot sauce! They are a filling, satisfying and delicious way to start the day!


  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 cup baby spinach, washed and drained with water still clinging to leaves
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup drained and sliced jarred roasted red peppers
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • ½ teaspoon Everything Bagel Seasoning
  • ¼ cup shredded Italian Cheese blend
  • Hot Sauce, to taste (We like Old Bay brand)
  • 1 4-inch whole wheat or low carb pita bread


  1. Coat a small non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Add spinach, cover and set over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring once or twice until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, beat eggs, salt and pepper in a small bowl. 
  3. Pour the eggs into the spinach and add roasted red pepper and scallions. Cook, using a heat-proof silicone spatula to gently stir and scrape the egg mixture along the bottom of the skillet to allow all of the egg to cook, and scramble the eggs. 
  4. When there is only a small amount of uncooked shiny and wet-looking egg left, sprinkle with Everything Bagel Seasoning and cheese and cover with a lid. Remove the skillet from the heat. Allow the carryover heat and steam to finish cooking the egg and melt the cheese.
  5. Place pita on a microwave safe plate and microwave until hot and pliable, about 20 seconds. (Alternatively, you can heat pita in toaster oven, wrapped in foil.) Cut in half and open the pocket.
  6. Spoon the egg mixture into the pitas, dividing evenly. Drizzle with hot sauce and serve immediately.


  • Ingredient Note: We used Joseph’s Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Pita Breads for this recipe. They have only 60 calories per pita (each pita is 37 grams.) They each have 9 grams total carbs and 2 grams fiber with a total of 7 grams net carbs. Recipe nutrition analysis is based on these pitas and not regular pitas which are higher in calories and carbohydrates. Nutrition details are an estimate. If you are following a specific diet, please verify analysis on your own and consult your doctor or dietitian. 
  • Tip: This recipe is very versatile and can be made with a variety of vegetables and cheeses. For harder vegetables, cook them separately first to soften them. They can be steamed in a microwave safe bowl with a little water, or you can cook them on the stove top. Some veggies that would be great in these include broccoli, zucchini and mushrooms. We also love cheddar cheese or Swiss cheese with these. 
  • Make Ahead: These come together in only 8 minutes, so there isn’t much need for making anything ahead. But if you do want to get a jump on them, try beating the eggs with the salt and pepper and keeping them in a resealable container. The peppers and scallions can be cut in advance and kept in another resealable container.
