- 2 whole pita rounds, cut in half
- 4 Smithfield® bacon slices, chopped in large pieces
- 4 avocados, sliced
- 6 eggs
- 2 oz. grated Monterey Jack cheese
- 1 large handful of fresh baby spinach
- Pinch salt
- Crack eggs into a small bowl and whisk with a fork until well combined; set aside until ready to scramble.
- Cook bacon in a medium size sauté pan over medium heat until well done and crispy. Remove from pan and let bacon drain on a paper towel. When cool enough to handle, cut or crumble into small pieces.
- Wipe almost all excess grease from the pan, leaving just enough to cook the eggs, and return to stove top. Over medium heat, scramble the eggs 2-3 minutes until just set. Add the grated cheese and a pinch of salt. Cook the eggs a minute longer so the cheese melts and the eggs are cooked through. Remove from heat.
- Meanwhile, toast the pitas lightly in a commercial toaster just until warmed through. Divide the eggs into the 4 halved pitas along with a healthy handful of spinach. Sprinkle with reserved bacon pieces and serve warm.

What is pita?
Pita is a flatbread that has origins in the Middle East. Its main ingredients are flour, water, baker’s yeast, and salt.
How do you heat pita bread?
Start by preheating your oven to 350° F (176° C). Next, wrap your pita bread tightly in aluminum foil. When the oven is ready, place your pitas on the middle rack for about 10 mins. You can also heat pita bread in the microwave. This process takes about 10 – 15 seconds.
How do you open a pita pocket?
Start by heating your pita pocket to soften it up. Next, look for any cracks along the long edge of the bread. If there is a crack, you can open it from there. If not, start at the long edge of the pita. Carefully tear or slice along the edge of the bread about a third of the way around.
