Spinach Feta Egg Pastries

Soft pastry, warm spinach, crumbled feta, and an egg on top: the perfect Labor Day weekend breakfast. Despite the stress of a last-minute substitution I had to make for this recipe, these pastries were so relaxing and fun to make as a kick-off to the long weekend. I thought I had puff pastry on hand,…

Carbonara Egg Nests

Arguably, carbonara is the best pasta dish to put an egg on and call brunch. After all, the traditional recipe calls for a raw egg to bind the sauce together with pancetta (or bacon) and fresh cheese. So why not add more egg into the mix? I had fun creating this “nest” version of carbonara,…

Crispy Broccoli Egg Toasts

If you’ve never thought of broccoli as breakfast appropriate, I’m here to change your mind. I’ve never claimed to be healthy recipe creator, but a recent, ongoing acid reflux flare-up (my first ever) made me take a hard look at my eating habits, and has also given me the creativity to create delicious meals using…

Everything in the Kitchen Eggs in Hell

Got tomato sauce and produce you need to use? Here’s your next brunch recipe. I put this together on one of those Saturday mornings when you want a real meal but are too lazy to leave the house for groceries. If you try this recipe, I’d love to see! Tag me on Instagram, and you…

Eggs in (Pasta) Purgatory

This is my favorite way to utilize extra leftover pasta. It’s the perfect comfort food, especially during the winter. Ingredients: Olive oil 2 eggs About half of a box of pre-cooked pasta of your choice About half of a jar of pasta sauce of your choice (can be precooked if you’re using leftovers) Extra: cherry…

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

I had extra smoked salmon from a previous recipe, so I created this quick, dressed up avocado toast to use it! If you make a similar avo toast, tag me, and you might be featured in the Yolk Lover’s Guide! Ingredients: 2 pieces of bread 1 avocado About 2 slices of smoked salmon (I used…

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…
