Angie’s Scrambled Egg Pockets

I tore some of the pita away to show you the egg mixture.

Breakfast for dinner serves a wonderful dual purpose. It’s cheaper than normal dinners and kids love the change. The scrambled egg pockets have a unique twist to traditional eggs and the ingredients are healthy, so I feel good giving it to my family for dinner. I did learn the hard way to really look at which ingredients I buy. This calls for plain greek yogurt, and the first time I bought & used vanilla yogurt. Big mistake! LOL. I got it right the 2nd time and it made a world of difference. Everybody was happy and I had 7 full tummies after dinner. This recipe is also very adaptable for different bread types and ingredients added to the eggs. Change it up!

Some of the things I did to make this meal even more frugal, is to use coupons, buy pitas on the 40% rack of breads at Wal-mart, and bought 2 individual yogurts instead of a tub.

I assume you want these eggs, etc cooked before you put them in the pita’a?? I don’t see all of the recipe??

Of course you cook them. Who wants to eat raw eggs?

It says right in the directions to scramble them together, that means on the stove in the pan with the heat on. She’s not missing any steps to anything ;)

I see where after you cook the eggs you add them to a yogurt SAUCE. How do you prepare the sauce or is it just yogurt.

Rita, yes, you cook the eggs when you scramble them. Melissa, the yogurt sauce is just the yogurt mixture.

My wife is going to freak when I tell her about this recipe as well as this site! She is always looking for a way to make good meals at a reasonable price. Thanks!

This was actually pretty good! I didn’t use ALL the sauce, maybe 3/4 of it. I also don’t recommend using wheat pitas….it just takes away from the flavor!
