Let’s talk about breakfast. I love it! But unfortunately I find myself eating eggs a lot and I’m getting a little tired of them. I was trying to think of high protein breakfast foods that weren’t the same old cooked eggs. Tofu is perfect in this situation! Now, I know tofu is thought of as boring and people think it’s just a lame (or gross) alternative to meat, but get excited because this recipe for tofu scramble is delicious.
The great thing about tofu is that it hardly has any flavor on it’s own which makes it super versatile. This tofu scramble has a ton of flavor and will keep you full for a good amount of time.
This recipe is considered vegan as well as vegetarian because it contains no animal products at all.
Two eggs and a piece of bacon walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve breakfast here.”
Good thing this isn’t a bar because life without eggs and bacon would be a sad life, indeed. But this isn’t your traditional eggs and bacon breakfast. This crustless quiche is simple, but is something you could serve for brunch.
The beautiful simplicity of a crustless quiche will do well for any crowd. If you are feeding a crowd, pair it with some plain greek yogurt and berries in small bowl.
This is my go-to meal. What is a go-to meal, you ask? Well, a go-to meal is a meal that you can fall back on when your well-intended plan to cook goes into the tank. This happens when you unexpectedly work late, or your kid is sick, or you just don’t have the energy to stand in front of the stove for more than 10 minutes. Everyone needs a go-to meal…it’s okay, you can borrow mine!
Have you found yourself in a rut when it comes to breakfast foods? Look no further than these flavorful mini quiches made in ramekins to spice up your morning!
Foods prepared in ramekins are an easy way to make sure you have the perfect serving size every time. They can also be conveniently stored away in the fridge for easy leftovers!
Now, on to the quiche. One of my favorite things about this recipe is how versatile it can be. You can use whatever vegetables, meats, or cheeses you have on hand to create a new and unique mini quiche every time! For mine, I chose broccoli, mushrooms, colby jack cheese, and turkey slices. Some other ideas might include peppers, spinach, asparagus, bacon, or ham. The possibilities are endless!
I hear it all the time. Almost daily even. How can I spice up my eggs? I’ve been having scrambled eggs forever, is there anything else I can do? I need something easy and family friendly for breakfast, any ideas? Pepperoni Eggs might just be your new favorite breakfast.
It seems like breakfast is the hardest meal of the day to get variety. While I’m an advocate of eating any proteins you want for breakfast, not everyone can bring themselves to eat a piece of chicken or a salmon filet first thing in the morning. I get it! Breakfast foods are breakfast foods. And that can get monotonous. But try out this recipe for Pepperoni Eggs…I promise it is nothing life shattering or ground breaking. But it might give you just enough pump to start loving your breakfast again.
I hope you might start thinking differently about breakfast…or at least begin to like it again with this recipe for Pepperoni Eggs.
We have eggs a lot at my house. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Scrambled, boiled, baked. Doesn’t matter. But I’m a creature of habit…eating the same dishes frequently does not bother me much. Mr. A, though…he needs variety. So after making pepperoni eggs for the millionth time, he asked for something a little different. Since a little variety never hurt anyone, I tried to come up with something that would be just as easy to make….and just a good.
Ham, Spinach, and Mozza Casserole
This dish is a cinch to make. And it is easy to warm up for leftovers. Win, win in my book!
Alright guys…my family and I were on an egg kick this weekend! We LOVE eggs! We eat them for breakfast, for lunch & for dinner. They’re a great source of protein & vitamins and they fit well into our budget. I also like that I can make eggs a zillion different ways.
It’s taken me years to figure out how to make perfect hardboiled eggs. The key is to not overcook the eggs and to also rapidly chill the eggs once they’re cooked. This will prevent the green around the yolk.
As with any of our recipe posts, don’t be afraid to change it up a bit. Instead of eating just hardboiled eggs, try adding these things for deviled eggs or egg salad: turkey bacon crumbles & sliced cherry tomatoes or use avocado instead of mayo for the yolks.
Perfect hardboiled eggs are a cinch to make!
Place eggs in medium size sauce pan and add water to cover eggs.
Place over high heat and bring to a boil.
Once boiled, remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, remove lid and drain hot water from pan. Add cool water and ice cubes. Let stand for 10 minutes.
Peel and eat or store in refrigerator.
Once I had the perfect hardboiled egg, my kids begged me to make egg salad for lunch. I ate mine over a bed of spinach. I like to keep my egg salad simple…nothing fancy….basically almost exactly how I make my deviled eggs.
Once my eggs were chilled, I peeled the shell off, sliced them up, added a few simple ingredients (olive oil mayo, mustard, sweet relish and salt & pepper), mixed well and lunch was served!
A simple, yet delicious egg salad. Great for a quick lunch!
Add eggs to medium sauce pan and add water to cover eggs.
Bring water to boil. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, drain hot water from pan. Add cool water and ice to cool eggs. Let stand until eggs are cool to the touch (~3-5 minutes).
Peel eggs, then quarter and add entire egg to bowl.
Add all other ingredients and stir to combine. Serve over bed of spinach or eat alone.
Hello! This is Elise, the dietetic intern working with the dietitians! I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get burnt out on just scrambling my eggs in the mornings. I also don’t always give myself enough time to make breakfast each morning! Preparing these Mediterranean Egg Muffins in advance will save you time in the mornings and provide you with some yummy taste variety.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Actually, I could eat breakfast foods for every meal, every day. They are SO good. That’s why I love this quick and easy frittata recipe. Vegetables, eggs, and cheese! What a nutritious and delicious way to start the day! Try this Egg and Veggie Frittata for a easy fix on a rushed weekday morning or for a tasty weekend brunch with family.
First, in a skillet, saute the onions and bell peppers in a small amount of olive oil over medium-low heat until they are nice and tender. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Feel free to saute them less if you like your vegetables crunchy!
Pour the eggs into the skillet and let cook for 3-5 minutes.
Sprinkle the top with feta cheese and fresh spinach. Cover the skillet with a lid and allow to cook for a few more minutes until the bottom of the frittata is lightly browned and the eggs are done.
One of the great things about egg recipes like this one is you can use any veggies you desire- mushrooms, tomatoes, zucchini- you name it, you can add it! Use a spatula to get your delicious egg and veggie frittata onto your plate and ENJOY!
