Spinach & Bean Egg Toasts with Red Pepper Flakes

This was a spontaneous idea inspired by a can of beans that has lived in my pantry forever – how’s that for food blog glamour? I didn’t know what to expect with this one, but I had a feeling throwing red pepper flakes on it would make it taste good, no matter what. It turns…

Spiralized Butternut Squash Egg Nests

I’ve wanted to make a nest breakfast for a long time, but I don’t own a spiralizer, and they (possibly irrationally) scare me. So I asked my boyfriend to grab me whatever pre-spiralized item our grocery store happened to be selling one day, which varies from zucchini, to sweet potato, to other squashes. Butternut squash-oodles…

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,…

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…

Eggs in Bell Pepper Rings with Cherry Ketchup Hashbrowns and Spinach

I demonstrated this recipe LIVE with ‘Chups Condiments on their Facebook show, “Makin’ Stuff” this week! It’s an oldie but a goody – a breakfast from the early days of Meag’s Eggs that incorporates healthy veggies while filling you up! And it’s quick enough to make before work. ‘Chups is a local DC condiment company…

Perfect Circle Eggs on Pancakes

You don’t need me to tell you how to make pancakes (or do you?). This one is less of a hard recipe and more of an effort to make eggs more whimsical. The key: a circle-shaped cookie cutter. Try it out (possibly using other shapes?) and show me how it goes – you might be…

Prosciutto Naan Breakfast Pizzas

This was the week of naan pizzas – complete with a saltier, meatier version, compared to the zucchini/squash one I made previously. To contrast the prosciutto’s saltiness in this version, I baked the pizzas with tomato slices as a topping. I removed them for my photos, because I didn’t like how the colors were working…

Naan Breakfast Pizzas with Sriracha Mayo, Zucchini & Squash

This fresh summery pizza is how I began my first free Sunday morning in nearly a month. It only takes 10 minutes to bake, and tasted amazing with sriracha mayo as the base! I’ll be sharing more tips for quick breakfasts like this one in the new Yolk Lover’s Guide, which you can sign up…

Baguette Slice Egg-in-a-Hole

Low on groceries and/or time, but have the end of a baguette lying around? That was me this week – so I experimented with this egg-in-a-hole variation. So simple, and so quick. The next time you have a baguette, try it, and tag me or send me a pic to be featured in the newly…
