This Middle Eastern-inspired breakfast is a popular selection at Medina, where the dish includes a boiled egg and three salads—tabbouleh, cucumber salad, and baba ghanoush—complemented with crisp pita toasts. Our simplified version features just one salad: tabbouleh.

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Arrange pita wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet. Lightly brush pita wedges with 2 tablespoons oil; bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden.
3. Combine 1 cup water and bulgur in a large bowl. Let stand 30 minutes or until bulgur is tender. Drain bulgur through a fine sieve; discard liquid. Place bulgur in a medium bowl. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil, tomato, parsley, onion, mint, juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and red pepper; toss well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
4. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. With a slotted spoon, carefully lower eggs into pan; cook 6 minutes. Drain and rinse eggs with cold running water until cool (about 1 minute). Peel eggs. Place 1/3 cup tabbouleh and 4 pita wedges on each of 6 plates; top each serving with 1 egg. Sprinkle eggs with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
