Weekday Breakfasts, Updated! Friday: Medit-American Breakfast Pita

To be honest, I had no idea what I was going to make today for the finale of my series of weekday breakfast posts. I spent some time last night deliberating what to make, what to make: it had to be somewhat unusual to make it blog-worthy, but I didn’t have any unusual ideas. I really felt like making a crèpe, but I knew I wouldn’t have time. Finally I had to retire to bed, still worried that I wouldn’t think of anything creative and would ruin the series on the last day.

In the morning, I really felt like something savory, not sweet, which is unusual for me. I decided to try a random combination of savory ingredients and just hoped they would taste okay together. The verdict: actually, they tasted brilliant. A combination of hummus, Muenster cheese, and vegetarian bacon strips may sound weird, but the flavors mingled wonderfully inside crispy toasted pita pockets to create a fun breakfast dish with absolutely NO PREP WORK REQUIRED.

Weekday breakfasts, updated! Friday: Medit-American Breakfast pita with hummus, veggie bacon, and cheese

I’m calling this a “Medit-American” pita because it’s composed of half Mediterranean cuisine and half traditional American breakfast foods. (Well, I guess fake bacon is less traditional than real bacon, but no recipe made out of pigs will ever be found on this site.) I thought the hummus and pita married perfectly with the Muenster cheese and veggie bacon. The cheese started to melt inside the warm pita pockets, resulting in even more awesomeness!

I think this is a good breakfast meal because it is fast and convenient like a sandwich. Also like a good sandwich, it contains nutrients from different food groups: the pita provides carbs, the cheese and fake bacon provide protein, and the hummus provides a bit more protein and some healthy fats.

Makes 2 pockets

Ingredients:

  • 2 whole wheat pita pockets (one round “loaf” of pita bread)
  • 2 tbls hummus (I used Sabra Tuscan Herb Garden Hummus)
  • 1 slice Muenster cheese
  • 2 Morning Star brand vegetarian bacon strips (found in the frozen aisle)

Directions:

Assemble all ingredients. Place the fake bacon strips on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for about a minute and a half to a minute and 45 seconds. While they are microwaving, separate your pita loaf into two pockets and toast it. When done toasting, spread the hummus inside each of the pockets. Break fake bacon strips into a couple pieces and rip the slice of cheese in half. Stuff the fake bacon and cheese into the pitas.

Now all you have to do is savor the flavor of gourmet Medit-American cuisine!
