  • 1/2 c. Greek-style (thick) unflavored yogurt  
  • 4 oz. bulk sausage (Greek, lamb or pork)  
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/3 c. Greek olives, diced  
  • 3/4 c. wild mushrooms, chopped

In small bowl, stir together yogurt and lemon juice; set aside.

In nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage, stirring frequently and crumbling for 2 minutes. Add onions, olives and mushrooms; cook 4 minutes more.

Add spinach leaves and cook until wilted and sausage is fully cooked, about 1 to 3 minutes. Add eggs and cook, stirring constantly until almost dry. Remove from heat and stir in feta. Stuff each pita half with feta-egg mixture. Serve immediately with lemon yogurt.
