Flying Saucer for Breakfast by Jodie Fitz
1 honey wheat pita
2 -3 tablespoons shredded sharp cheese
Heat a griddle style pan over low heat. Using a round cookie cutter cut out the center of the pita. Butter both sides and place one side onto the pan and begin to toast it for a minute or two. Add a little bit of butter to the center opening & crack an egg into the center. Break the yoke with a spatula. Season the egg with a dash of salt, pepper, onion powder & garlic powder. Let the egg cook until it looks almost done.
Flip the flying saucer in one complete piece, Season the egg with a dash of the spices on the next side. Add the shredded cheese & cook the egg the rest of the way, melting the cheese.
Serve it with a side of fresh fruit.
