BurgerFit Pita Pocket
On Friday’s, BurgerFit CEO Alane Boyd gets creative with BurgerFit burgers, Koops’ Mustard, and SunGarden Sprouts! Alane uses ingredients from her home to create this delicious BurgerFit Pita Pocket recipe with Spicy Brown Koops’ Mustard and SunGarden Spicy Sprouts mix!
Everything tastes better in a pita pocket!
Your go-to back to school lunch for your kiddos! This BurgerFit Pita Pocket is super easy to make and is packed full with nutrients! Whatever BurgerFit burger you have on hand will be delicious in this, and don’t forget the Koops’ mustard and SunGarden sprouts!
There is something fun about eating food in a pita pocket! You can make this recipe yours by adding your favorite ingredients, or whatever you have in your refrigerator. That’s what we love about this recipe, you can customize it any way you want and still have a delicious and filling lunch for your LO’s going to school. If you’re looking to take this recipe to the next level, try making your own pickled onions or sauer beets to add to your BurgerFit Pita Pocket!
Trying to get kids to eat vegetables can be really difficult and that is why I love that this burger is blended with mushrooms and spinach. Mushrooms are such a great vegetable to blend with ground meat since they can easily take on the flavor of the meat. Kids (and picky adults) won’t even know they are eating vegetables and they will be loving it! Using sprouts can also be a win for getting a kid to eat vegetables. A sprout is a lot less intimidating to try than a whole vegetable. Sprouts are cute and fun and they make kids curious. Plus, sprouts have such a concentrated amount of nutrients that you don’t have to worry about your kids not getting their vitamins and minerals – a small portion of sprouts will have them covered!
BurgerFit burgers don’t have to be made with ground beef, it can easily be substituted with your favorite type of ground meat like ground chicken, pork, and turkey.
I love all things spicy and love using the Koops’ Spicy Brown Mustard with the Spicy Sprout Mix from SunGarden. If you aren’t a spice fan, you can experiment with any of the Koops’ Mustards and SunGarden sprouts!
Some of the Koops’ Mustards that I think would be great on this burger are:
- Original Yellow Koops’ Mustard
- Dijon Koops’ Mustard
- Stone Ground Koops’ Mustard
- Honey Dijon Koops’ Mustard
Some of the SunGarden sprouts that I think would be great on this burger are:
- Alfalfa SunGarden Sprouts
- Broccoli and Clover Blend SunGarden Sprouts
- Clover SunGarden Sprouts
- Mung Bean SunGarden Sprouts
This recipe doesn’t just have to be for your kids going off to school! This is a go-to at my house for the whole family! If I don’t want to eat a pita pocket, I’ll just toss all the ingredients over a bed of greens with sprouts and mustard on top. I usually don’t even use a salad dressing and use the mustard as if it were one. If I decide I want a little dressing, I’ll usually whip up one of my favorite ones. Do whatever works for your family!
Any BurgerFit burgers would be delicious in this! Here are a few of my favorites that I think would be great for this recipe:
