Ham and Egg Pita
Need something to do with the leftover holiday ham? I did, and that's when I threw together this meal. I ended up eating this for dinner, but it can also be a great breakfast or lunch. Luckily Christmas dinner was at my aunt's house and not at my house. We hosted Thanksgiving dinner and had a truly unbelievable amount of leftovers. This time we just took what we wanted back home with us, and the ham was the only thing that made it back.
I use Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Pitas. They are low in carbs, low in Points+, high in fiber and they taste delicious. I have even been known to eat them alone, sans any filling (shhh...I love carbs).
Also, I made this for myself, but it can be easily doubled or tripled.
Ham and Egg Pitas
Makes 1 serving
1 low carb pita

2 tablespoons red sweet pepper, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Spray a medium skillet with cooking spray; add scallions, pepper and ham and saute until the pepper is softened and the ham is lightly browned.
2. In a bowl, whisk together egg and egg whites; season with salt and pepper; add to skillet and cook, stirring with a spatula.
3. Split the pita into halves and add the eggs.
