Happy National Egg Month! I’ve made my love of eggs well known — I’ve even given them a prominent spot in my Instagram bio. I’ve also shared quite a few egg recipes here on my blog…without realizing how I often I had.
To celebrate National Egg Month this year, I’m sharing a recipe that includes both eggs, but also my love of tex-mex food. It’s sort of like a breakfast burrito, but instead everything is stuffed into a handy pita bread, which is super convenient for taking breakfast-on-the-go.
I think my Breakfast Fajita Pitas are a great alone for a National Egg Month celebration, but why don’t we make it more of a party in this post. Who’s interested in a giveaway for a Farberware Premium Professional12-Piece Cookware Set with Teflon® nonstick coating??
As part of my ambassadorship with Teflon, I was sent this Farberware Cookware Set with Teflon®. It’s a great red color, which I LOVE and matches my kitchen perfectly. It also has glass lids, which is a must for my cooking.
These best part, though, is the Teflon SmartGlide™ System which is safe for metal utensils. Yep, you can use your metal spatula or spoons without worry. That alone should make you want this set. It’s makes my life so much easier — do you know how many times I’ve had to tell my kids to not use metal in my Teflon pans? I can’t even count how many times. Too bad we can’t go back in time with this set. And, here’s another lifesaver: clean up is SO easy with this set too.
I know you all are going to want this cookware, which is why I’m giving away a set to one of you in honor of National Egg Month! If you want your chance to win your own Farberware Premium Professional 12-Piece Cookware Set with Teflon® nonstick coating , be sure to enter on the Rafflecopter at the end of this post by May 31st.
To make Breakfast Fajita Pitas, you are going to saute some bell peppers and onions until tender crisp.
Seasoned scrambled eggs are also cooked. If you wish wash only one pan, you could cook your peppers and then remove them from the pan and cook the eggs in that same pan. I actually cooked both at the same time, in two separate pans to save on time.
After both the eggs and the veggies are cooked, they are combined together in the pan.
Cut a pita bread in half and open one half to form a little pocket. Fill it with some of the egg and veggie fajita mixture and then you can top with any additional toppings.
Just like with fajitas, you can top it with whatever you like. Some ideas are shredded or crumbled cheese, salsa, chopped tomatoes, sour cream, avocado, and cilantro.
Here’s the complete recipe — if you aren’t ready for it yet, be sure to save it one of your Pinterest boards for safe-keeping.
Easy Breakfast Fajita Pitas Recipe
Breakfast Fajita Pitas
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 red bell pepper sliced
- 1/2 green bell pepper sliced
- 1/2 medium onion sliced
- 6 large eggs
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons butter
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2-3 pocket pita breads 5-6" diameter, halved
- Optional toppings: shredded cheese cheddar, monterey jack, etc, queso fresco, cotija, feta, etc, crumbled cheeses , sour cream, salsa, avocado, cilantro, tomatoes, etc.
Heat olive oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. When oil and pan are hot, add peppers and onions and cook them until they are tender-crisp. Turn off heat and remove veggies from the pan to a bowl or plate so that the pan can be used to cook the eggs.
In a bowl, beat together eggs and milk. Beat in chili powder and garlic powder. Melt butter in the nonstick frying pan over medium heat. When butter is melted and pan is hot, pour in egg mixture. As eggs start to cook, push, pull, and fold eggs with a spatula frequently until all egg is cooked and no liquid remains (but don't overcook ). Turn off heat. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
Add the cooked peppers and onions to the eggs, gently folding them together.
Fill each pocket pita bread with desired amount of egg/veggie mixture. Top with optional toppings and enjoy!
Recipe Notes--The actual number of pitas you will get will vary on how large your eggs and bell peppers are. It also varies on how full you fill the pitas. We were able to get 5-6 pockets full, but it's possible you could end up with as few as 4.
