Ejjeh

Ejjeh is a popular Mediterranean breakfast item, served as an appetizer and often made during the month of lent. Ejjeh is similar to the French omelette, the Italian fritatta, and the Mexican huevos rancheros. Eggs are combined with parsley and Mexican gray zucchini or squash, red bell peppers, seasoned with garlic and allspice and fried in vegetable oil. This is my idea of a “power” breakfast! Wrap a couple in pita bread and you are good to go. If you have kids who are picky eaters, and throw tantrums when you give them vegetables, make them a batch of these fritters. Every bite they take will be nutritious and healthy!
