    Made it vegetarian. I've made a dish like this before but my boyfriend doesn't eat eggs. Crumbled, sauteed tofu (with garlic, onion and spices) makes a delicious subsitute for the egg. Yum yum!  -  15 Sep 2008


    Something else. Very good. I cook my potatoes with garlic, onion and a touch of olive oil. I also add bacon, cheese and avocado. My husband loves these!! And my two and half year old, too!YUM!  -  15 Sep 2008


    This was okay but the potatoes made the pitta really dense. I thought it would be better with the scrambled eggs and something like tomato or broccoli. Then serve the potatoes on the side. But the pitta was very filling with the potatoes so it is good for a hearty breakfast.  -  15 Sep 2008
