  • servings: 4
Photography: Con Poulos




  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 4 pitas
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. Step 1

    In a large shallow dish, whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, lemon zest, nutmeg, and salt. Cut 4 pitas in half crosswise and place in dish. Soak 15 minutes, flipping halfway through.

  2. Step 2

    In a large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium until foaming. Lift 4 pita halves from egg mixture, letting excess drip off, and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 12 minutes, flipping halfway through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm; repeat with remaining pita halves. Cut into wedges and dust with confectioners' sugar.
