Last week I wrote about back-to-school lunches. I hope you found a few ideas to add ease, flavor and nutrition to your brown bag routine. The menu I developed was varied but was missing a lunch featuring eggs. I like eggs because they are quick cooking and portable. Here is a sandwich that, with the help of a microwave, can be assembled in just a few minutes and boasts a great taste! Enjoy!
Easy Egg, Spinach & Feta Pita (serves 1)
1 large egg
1/2 cup fresh baby spinach, chopped
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
Salt and pepper to taste
Whole grain pita pocket, split
Using cooking spray, lightly coat the interior of a small microwavable bowl. Crack egg into the bowl and whisk with a fork to combine yolk with white. Top with spinach and season with salt and pepper. Microwave for 1 minute or less, until egg is cooked. Split egg portion and fill pockets. Sprinkle with feta cheese. The pita can be eaten immediately or wrapped in foil for your sack lunch.
