Cheese Mushroom and Egg Breakfast Pita makes the perfect weekend brunch or breakfast. Deliciousness made real easy with Homemade Pita, a spread of cream cheese, spicy mushrooms, a slice of melty cheese and topped with a crispy fried egg. So good right ?
On Tuesday, I shared a recipe post on Easy Homemade Pita Bread. It is a simple recipe giving you a step by step method on how to make your own pita bread. It does use yeast in the recipe, but as I mentioned in the post, instant yeast really makes bread making so much simpler. So if you would like to make your own pita for this recipe, the Cheese Mushroom and Egg Breakfast Pita, go ahead and check out the recipe here. Remember, the pita bread can be made up during the week and will remain soft at room temperature in a sealed container or up to a month in the freezer. If you are unable to make the pita, then store-bought should work just fine.
Can you believe that you can have this breakfast on the table in just 15 minutes, it really makes the perfect weekend breakfast. And especially for your unexpected brunch guests….yes thats right, you go ahead and impress them with this plate of yum ?
Chopped mushrooms are fried in butter or margarine with onions,garlic, thyme and dried chilli flakes for just 5 minutes. I do not like to over cook the mushrooms because I feel that they lose their flavour and becomes way too soggy. Add chilli flakes to your taste…my taste is almost the entire bottle? …. I so love spicy food.
A little cream cheese is spread on the pita with a slice of cheese, any cheese you prefer, I usually use cheddar. Layer with the cooked mushrooms and then top with a crispy fried egg. And seriously that is it! Ready for breakfast yet?
So put away your toasters and cereal bowls this weekend, bring the sunshine into your kitchen and enjoy a deliciously fancy looking breakfast which does not take a fancy long time to make. Have a great weekend ☺
