I had that day yesterday. We really did not have much to make food with (no bread, no rice... I know, there's more to food than carbs... we also didn't have anything for salads and no more apples either!) So what I saw on our counter was two ripe avacados... and we had eggs in the fridge. And then for some weird reason we had pita bread. So I looked up "Egg Pita Bread Recipe" and found the below wonderful (did I mention healthy?) recipe!
1 piece whole wheat pita bread
1 Hass avocado
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp butter
1 organic egg
kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
Toast the pita bread in a toasted over for 3-4 minutes until just crisp. Remove from the toasted over and set aside.
Cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Remove the avocado from the skin, and transfer the avocado flesh to medium bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocado until it’s half chunky and half smooth. Add the lemon juice and mix to combine and set aside.
Place the butter in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat and cook until the butter is melted.
Crack the egg into a small bowl, making sure to be gentle and leave the yolk in one piece.
Slide the cracked egg into the hot skillet and reduce the heat to low. Cook the egg until the egg whites are fully cooked and the yolk is slightly cooked, but still running. You just want the yolk to thicken a touch. Turn the heat off and sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper.
Place the pita onto a plate. Slather the avocado mixture on top of the pita and then carefully transfer the egg on top of the avocado.
The only thing I did different than the recipe said, was a). I didn't really measure the lemon... I just squeezed it in, and b). I cracked my yolk so that it would cover more of the pita/avacado. Although it is delicious this way, I think it could use some kind of herb... so if any of you make it and put herbs in, let me know! I would love to see what variations of this recipe could be made :)
Have a wonderful day!
