Scrambled Eggs and Mushroom on a Pita

It is holiday time and most of us will have family and friends visiting. This means we need to have some plan for breakfast for sure while lunch and dinner could perhaps be on the run or outside. While an Indian breakfast is always a possibility. If you are not so inclined making something a tiny bit different but simple and easy enough while making for a crowd is a nice option to have. Like this scrambled egg and mushroom stuffed into a pita.

Eggs and mushrooms go well together. The only thing with mushrooms is that they have to be spicy to taste good is what I think. If you want them stuffed in a pita bread slightly spicier the better. Button, crimini, portabella mushrooms any of them will work in this recipe.

Cut the mushrooms into 1/4 inch dices. You can also add bell pepper cut into 1/4 inch dice as well. I used mushroom, onions and hot chili peppers.

Now on to the recipe,

HEat oil in a saute and add the chopped green chilies and onions and saute till the onions are browned.
Add in the mushroom and saute till they are cooked.
Add salt and pepper powder mix and add the eggs and continue to saute till the eggs are cooked and scrambled.
Heat the pita bread, slit and stuff with the scrambled egg.

An easy and quick but tasty breakfast is ready.
