(Scumble is an art term where the artist fills in darks and lights by scribbling the pencil in lose or tight circles and squiggles.)

Serves 2

2 tsps butter
1/2 cup Egg Beaters Southwest Style
1 oz. reduced fat 2% Cheddar cheese grated
2 oz. deli Misquite smoked turked chopped or Turkey Lil Smokey links sliced
1 whole wheat pita or whole wheat tortilla/wrap

Melt butter in non stick pan on med-high.
Pour in egg, sprinkle turkey and cheese on top.
Lower heat to med.

Cut pita in half and drop in toaster to warm.
Careful opening the pita, hot steam will escape. Or warm tortilla in toaster oven (I drop it in the toaster, just be careful it doesn’t get caught on the elements)

As eggs start to set, scumble together with spatula in a stirring/chopping/incorporating motion and shape in an even circle a little smaller than the pita.

Let brown slightly. You want the cheese to brown but not the egg. Turn over to brown other side. Cut in half and place one half in each half of warm pita or wrap.

Options: if using plain egg beaters or eggs you can add your favorite seasoning when adding the cheese.

1 serving with pita: 174 cal, 9g carbs, 17g protein, 1g fiber, 7.5g fat, 4.5g sat fat.
1 serving with wrap: 159 cal, 5.5g carbs, 18g protein, 3.5g fiber, 8.5g fat, 4.5g sat fat.
