Egg in a Bagel

Two of breakfast’s brightest stars: creamy yolks and warm bagels – combined here in a twist on the classic egg in a hole recipe. Keep this easier-than-it-looks breakfast in your arsenal for impressing friends and family, or throw it together just for yourself on a busy morning. Ingredients: 1 bagel, sliced in half. (I like…

Eggs in Shell Pasta with Vodka Sauce

Featuring gluten-free chickpea pasta! (not required, but a good choice if you’re craving real pasta and can’t have it). I recently had the opportunity to try this chickpea-based pasta by Banza, and as someone who CAN have regular pasta, I can tell you that it was GOOD! But what isn’t good, smothered in cheesy vodka…

Baked Eggs Pull-Apart Crostini

This week in, “what can I make with these five random ingredients,” comes a successful eggsperiment combining a leftover baguette and the produce currently in my refrigerator. I love when I get to take my time playing around with recipes like this on a Sunday! I asked what I should call this on Instagram, and…

Poached Eggs On Sweet Potato Toast with Avocado and Goat Cheese

I don’t claim to be a health-food blog, but I feel so good after making this alternative-to-bread breakfast! I was inspired by the many delicious-looking sweet potato toasts fellow-blogger Skylar Allen makes (see her Instagram). While Skylar roasts hers in the oven, I, being impatient, grilled mine over the stove. It turned out so good,…

Poached Eggs on Pasta alla Bolognese

I am truly in love with this meal. Meaty bolognese sauce? Scrumptious rotini noodles? Topped with creamy, runny poached eggs?! My breakfast and dinner fantasies had a baby. If you have extra leftover pasta, and have already tried eggs in pasta hell or eggs in pasta nests, you must try my favorite yolk pasta combo…

Spicy Spinach Eggs with Greek Yogurt

This recipe starts your day with a healthy kick of greens, and looks beautiful. I was inspired by this version from Bon Appetit mag (that is a little more involved) and adapted it into a quicker, possible-before-work meal. It’s great for weekend brunch, too, though – I hope you enjoy it! Ingredients: 2 eggs Olive oil…

Spinach & Eggplant Breakfast Pita Pizzas

I recently discovered a South Indian-inspired eggplant spread made here in Washington, D.C. It’s perfect with eggs, pita bread, tortilla chips or toast — but my new favorite way to use it is as a sauce for breakfast pita pizzas! The spread is by Sasya Foods, a locally-based company making vegan and gluten free spreads that also happen…

Fun-Shaped Fried Eggs

Using cookie cutters to fry eggs into fun shapes is perfect fodder for Instagram, but also an easy way to make a quick, tasty meal. See examples of the shapes I’ve tried and a general description of the process below. Ingredients: Cookie cutter(s) of your choice. Smaller shapes without small, thin details work best 2…

Huevos Rancheros

I’m a huge fan of incorporating Mexican food into breakfast, and there are so many ways you can do it. Have extra salsa? Leftover rice and beans? Leftover corn or other veggies you need to use? Cook an egg in it before work to treat yourself, or on the weekend when you need comfort food….

Sriracha Mayo Avocado Toast

I received sriracha mayo as a gift from Sir Kensington’s, which inspired me to try this combination. The avocado and spicy mayo complimented each other perfectly! Ingredients: 2 pieces of bread 1 avocado Sriracha mayo (I used Sir Kensington’s) 2 eggs Your favorite seasoning (I use Trader Joe’s everything seasoning mix or Z&Z DC’s Za’atar…
