I posted an image of my foray into zaatar hunting and both Arlette and Dana mentioned the zaatar and feta cheese combo. Feta (aka Bulgarian cheese here) is crumbled, doused in olive oil and sprinkled with fresh zaatar; a breakfast and after-school snack that helped assuage my hunger daily as a child growing up in Beirut.
Obviously, not all of us can go out and pluck a handful of wild zaatar; getting a good-quality dry mix is fine as a substitute or a little oregano. Last but not least, the best olive oil and all the trimmings: Pita bread, chopped tomatoes, olives and sliced cucumbers should be included in the mouthful.
The most satisfying breakfast or snack.
