  • 4 large Dakota Layers eggs
  • kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup cooked vegetables (such as peppers and onions)
  • ½ cup shredded cheese (such as sharp cheddar, Pepper Jack, etc)
  • 4 (6 1/2 - inch) whole wheat pitas, cut in half and warmed
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce or other leafy greens
  • ¼ cup sauce of your choice (such as pesto, salsa, tomato sauce, etc)
  • 2 strips cooked turkey bacon, crumbled (optional)


  1. Whisk eggs, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat; add your choice of cooked vegetables and cook until warmed, about 1 minute. Add eggs and stir two or three times, cooking until eggs are just set, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, scatter cheese over the top, cover with lid or foil and let “steam.”
  3. Stuff pita halves with lettuce. Divide egg mixture evenly and add to each pita. Garnish with sauce and turkey bacon, if using.
  4. Note: The USDA recommends cooking eggs until the yolk and whites are firm.
