Method: 

In a small saucepan, cook the diced potato in 2 teaspoons of olive oil and approximately two tablespoons of water, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender, stirring often. While potato cooks, sauté onion and turkey sausage in the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil, breaking up with a fork or spoon until sausage is cooked. Add beaten eggs and gently scramble until just cooked. Place egg and sausage mixture on pitas. Top with potatoes and cheese. Toast in a toaster oven or in a regular oven until cheese is melted and pita is hot and slightly toasted. Remove from oven and top with your favorite salsa.
