Ingredient Checklist
Tzatziki Sauce:

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). (Set countertop conduction oven to Combo 2.) Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, extending it up the sides.

  • Arrange bacon in a single layer on the foil (slight overlapping is okay as bacon will shrink). Place in preheated oven and cook until your desired level of doneness is reached, 10 and 20 minutes. (For countertop induction oven, cook bacon 8 to 10 minutes.) Transfer bacon to a paper-towel lined plate to drain and reserve bacon fat.

  • Place Greek yogurt in a bowl. Cut 1 cucumber in half and grate half into the yogurt. Stir in minced garlic, white pepper, and kosher salt to make tzatziki sauce.

  • Slice the remaining cucumber into thin slices and set aside.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage; cook and stir until browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Drain grease.

  • Transfer bacon fat to skillet over medium heat. Add pita rounds; toast until golden brown, about 30 seconds per side. Drain on paper towels.

  • Top each pita with bacon and sausage. Layer tzatziki sauce, spring mix, Roma tomatoes, cucumber slices, and onion on each pita.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a small skillet. Crack in 1 egg; cook until set but still soft, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Place egg on top of layered pita. Repeat with remaining oil and eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

Cliff your dish is AMAZING! Made it again this morning for about five people and it was easy to do and received rave reviews. I love the tsaziki sauce and love that I can now make this from scratch. I used Italian sausage instead of breakfast sausage because it is what I could quickly find at the grocerty store and it was perfect as well in this dish. Also I couldn't find pita bread so I warmed some Naan bread on the grill cut it in half and used it as a replacement. The photo I'm uploading is without the egg because it was SO BEAUTIFUL. BTW I made both this dish and the other for my guests to judge between the two themselves while Dinner Spinner was on and yours won as easily as it did during taping. GREAT JOB!!! Read More

I saw this on the TV show Allrecipes Dinner Spinner this past Saturday and loved the ingredients used. The greek breakfast pita is high in protein and love the greek yogurt sauce. I've tried it with spinach too. Love the flavors how they meld together. Always did like eggs over easy so this was so perfect in every way! Thanks! Read More

I loved this breakfast pita! It was hearty but fresh with the spring mix onion & tomato. I made with turkey sausage instead of regular pork sausage and used green onions instead of white. I also added a sprinkle of feta cheese. I typically do not like an egg unless the yoke is completely cooked but I cooked this over medium and it was very good. The yoke mixed in with the greens and it became more of a dressing. I can totally see myself making this again. Thanks for the recipe Cliff! Read More

When I saw Cliff make this recipe I was very impressed by the mix of favors. This recipe has everything you need to start the day greens tomatoes yogurt and more protein with the meat and the eggs. Oh! Man Cliff can flip an egg in a pan and makes amazing over easy eggs. I love the tzatziki sauce. I made it last weekend for my family and everybody loved it. It is simple and quick but very impressive you can even do it for a quick breakfast on the run. Great job Cliff! Read More

WOW what a great explosion of flavors and textures! I used romaine instead of spring mix b/c that's what I had on hand. Also I had a hard time splitting the pitas once they were fried so I just cut on in half and used half for the base and half for the top. which worked out fine. I cannot get over how delicious this was...I LOVED it! I will def be making this again and again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Thanks Cliff for our delicious lunch today! When I first made the sauce I thought "WOW! That's a lot of pepper!" But it totally worked! The flavors were very tasty and we absolutely have full bellies! I think next time I will cut down a little on the amount of ingredients and also make it open faced rather than in the pocket. All of that aside we are happy campers! Thanks! Read More
