Rise 'n Shine

This month, we conclude our series on breakfast sandwiches. And we're saving the best for last. A pita sandwich stuffed with all your breakfast favorites that's baked and easy to enjoy as you go about your day.

While these sandwiches do take a bit to make, they are well worth it. And you can take it a step further by making them the night before and baking them as you are getting ready for your day -- just refrigerate them overnight and bake them for 20-25 minutes instead of 15 minutes. You've got your day started right!

As always, I encourage you to share your recipe ideas and comments. You can always post comments in the discussion board using the forms provided in the articles or email me directly at .
