The school year is fast approaching and I’m already starting to plan out some easy and delicious meals for the busy school season. While I tend to stick to fairly basic sandwiches and snacks for the most part, I like having some fun and creative meal ideas at the ready as well. And that’s especially true for breakfast! Even though my boys love their cereal, they also love heartier options in the morning and since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I want to make sure that they head out the door feeling satisfied.
This year, Ozery’s Pita Break is helping with that thanks to its extensive variety of delicious and healthy Morning Rounds and Just Minis pita breads. I recently received a variety of products to create a tasty back-to-school recipe, so I decided to combine a few kid-friendly favourites into one quick and easy breakfast idea: Mexican Mini Breakfast Pizzas!
Mexican Mini Breakfast Pizzas
- 4 Ozery's Just Minis Multigrain Mini Pitas or substitute halved English muffins
- 3 tbsp. salsa
- 1 tsp. oil
- 4 eggs
- 2 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
- 1/2 cup grated cheese
Separate Just Minis and place eight halves on baking sheet. Toast under broiler for approximately 1 minute, until browned.
Spread each round with about 1 tsp. salsa.
Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggs to skillet and stir until scrambled, about four minutes.
Spoon 1-2 tbsp. of scrambled eggs on each pita half. Sprinkle crumbled bacon on eggs.
Sprinkle grated cheese over rounds and broil until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve hot.
If desired, pizzas can be prepared until just before the final broiling and frozen in a covered container up to one month. To serve, broil from frozen until pizzas are heated through and cheese is melted and bubbling.
Initially I had planned to make more traditional pizzas using regular pizza sauce, but since my oldest son loves Mexican food, I made the switch to salsa to spice up the mini pizzas a bit. I’m glad I did because the extra bit of tangy heat from the salsa was the perfect compliment to the other ingredients! I found four of these pizzas were the perfect amount for me, while my boys ate between two and four pizzas each depending on how hungry they were. The pitas were delicious but I’m sure that in a pinch, halved English muffins would work just as well.
These pizzas took just minutes to make, but for those especially busy mornings, they can even be made in advance and frozen in an airtight container before broiling! Just make sure to add a few minutes to the broiling time to ensure the rounds are heated through before serving. And for heartier appetites, try making a larger version of these pizzas with Ozery’s Multigrain Morning Rounds!
I can’t wait to create some other fun recipes with the Ozery’s Pita Break Just Minis and Morning Rounds pita bread, though I have to admit that I love eating them on their own as well. A Date and Chia Morning Round toasted and spread with cream cheese is pure bliss on a busy morning or for an afternoon snack!
