Shakshuka

My version starts with everything I could find in the refrigerator on a hungry weekend morning: a combination of pasta sauces, hot sauce, sausage, olives, parmesan, and tomatoes. But you can substitute a lot of other ingredients, too. Shakshuka, a traditionally Israeli dish, is a brunch meant for sharing on a cozy Sunday. If you…

Pink Deviled Eggs at Seasons 52 Support National Breast Cancer Foundation

One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. That’s a daunting number. How can we contribute to research and help change that rate in the future? It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and food businesses have come up with creative ways to help customers contribute to the…

Savory Sausage Baked Eggs Pastry

Puff pastry eggsperiment round two, this time with meat! Things went so well the first time I tried this with just veggies, so I finally got around to making them again – but with slices of asiago spinach sausage. This is a recipe you can definitely fit in before work, as long as you remember…

Eggs on Eggplant Slices

This was EGGScellent. Sorry, had to. But really, after a bit of prep work (see: pre-salting eggplant the night before), the cooking part of this recipe is too easy. And the result is a delicious, super healthy meal. Why pre-salt the eggplant? By using salt to expel moisture from the eggplant before cooking, you prevent…

No-Flip Fried Eggs Method

I tried to like frying eggs over-easy. Except it wasn’t that easy, and I became lazy. So I regularly practice the lid method instead: letting the heat of a pan cook the bottom of an egg, and covering the pan to steam the top of the egg. It only takes a few minutes, and can…

Smoked Salmon Avocado Toast with Soft Boiled Eggs

Savory Tomato Waffle “Hash” with Eggs

I’ve made a lot of breakfasts with savory waffles, so this time I tried something new: using chopped-up plant-based tomato waffles like hashbrowns and frying an egg in them. Specifically, I used swapples, made by a local DC startup that makes amazing healthy frozen waffles, but you could try this with other thick, Belgian-style waffles,…

New York-Inspired Bagel with Smoked Salmon

Moving to the East Coast has taught me something important: the only place to truly get a good bagel around here is in New York City. Also, that Washington, D.C. is a bagel desert.* So, I find myself longing for deli-style bagel sandwiches frequently, and after a recent girls trip that included a stop at…

English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches

This is one of the first meals I made in the new apartment I moved into this month – the beginning of my foray into electric stove cooking. I was delighted to find that frying eggs on an electric stove isn’t so hard (poaching is a whole other story) and that creating this fast food-inspired…

Turkish Breakfast with Sliced Soft-Boiled Eggs

Fact: It’s possible to love charcuterie-style meals so much that you look for ways to make cheese, crackers and cold-cuts acceptable for breakfast – until you remember that Turkish cuisine has already done that. With memories of the feta, fresh bread and salted boiled eggs I nibbled on for breakfast at a hostel in Istanbul…

Savory, Veggie Waffles: Meet the Startup Changing the Breakfast Game

Note – this post originally appeared on meaghanwebster.com in 2016. After mutual Instagram-stalking seemingly brought us together by fate, I recently had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca Peress from SWAP, a D.C. startup that makes AMAZING savory waffles, called swapples. swapples swap the junk out of frozen waffles (like chemicals and articifial coloring) for vegetables, flavorful spices, and heart…
