This easy Bacon and Cheddar Healthy Breakfast Pita is one of my new favorites. Anytime I can top breakfast with bacon, cheddar, and hot sauce I am a happy girl!
It will fill you up and keep you full for hours. It has loads of protein and fiber which is just what your body needs to start the day. You can even fold it, wrap in foil and toss in your purse or briefcase to enjoy at the office later. You can make this Healthy Breakfast Pita with turkey bacon, but I think what makes this so yummy is the use of real bacon It’s only one slice, and there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself once in a while.
Makes 1 Bacon and Cheddar Healthy Breakfast Pita serving.
- 1 Whole Wheat Pita
- 2 tbsp low calorie Cheddar Cheese
- 1/4 cup Arugula
- 1 slice good bacon, cut in half
- 1 Egg
Preheat the oven to 400, place the pita on a cookie sheet, top with cheese and place in the oven for 3-5 minutes just until the cheese is melted.
In a skillet cook the bacon on med-high, when it is done to your liking remove to a paper towel to drain and drain the excess oil from the pan. Cook the egg to your liking, scrambled, fried, over easy whatever you prefer.
Time to put it all together, top the cheese covered pita with the arugula, then the bacon and then the egg, top with your favorite hot sauce if you like, fold or cut into 4ths and chow down.
