Pocket Scramble

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Bergy

This is another "Clean the fridge" recipe. I have listed the main ingredients I used but feel free to use whatever you have in the fridge. You may serve this in Pita Pockets, on toast, a bun or just on a plate. It is great for brunch, lunch or an easy supper I like to add some cheese to it too. You can pour the eggs directly over the scramble in the skillet cover the skillet and cook over medium heat until firm. Remove lid and lift the eggs allowing the uncooked egg to run under and then replace lid & continue cooking - This takes apprx 8 minutes

I had some leftover snags from a BBQ so thought this would be a great way to use them, extra veggies added were tomatoes & spinach leaves & I used a mixture of BBQ & tomato sauce. For the topping I used regular cream in place of sour cream as that's all I had. Served with a side salad & homemade wedges rather than pitas, this was a nice quick meal.
