  1. really good serving idea (pita) with my favorite kind of scramble, nice and thank you!

  2. This may be a dumb question but why do you use oil in pan for frying bacon? Do you remove bacon grease before cooking eggs?
    Thx sounds delish!

    • Never a dumb question! You add the oil to saute the garlic. I added in you can drain the bacon grease if you need to before adding the eggs. Happy Cooking! :)

  3. Wheat pita bread are rich source of folate, magnesium, selenium and B vitamins. Another big health plus of eating pita is that your digestive system can work perfectly well. The rich amount of fibre in pita can have a great impact on the way your digestive works.

  4. wow! these sound so yummy!

  5. These are so fun Sandy! Love that serving dish and I loooove your backyard!!

  6. I found you while reading Jan Udlock’s Blog and so glad I did! Your blog came into my awareness at a time when my family really needs to get out from under life, and let the joy of living come back to us again!

  7. What a brilliant serving piece! This egg dish looks like the perfect recipe to shake up our breakfast routine a bit. I’ll be trying these this week. Thank you!

  8. I havent’ seen a serving boat like this, but think I need to add it to my arsenal. Having the proper serving dishes makes all the difference to how the meal comes together. Simple things like gravy boats or a large platter make a simple meal feel special.

  9. That is without a doubt the best serving dish for pita pockets that I’ve ever seen. I didn’t think I needed any more dishes but you’ve just proved me wrong.

    Spring looks mighty nice at your house.
