Baked Eggs Caprese Cups

Why make eggs on toast when you can transform your bread into something cute and Italian-inspired? I had basil and tomatoes at home, and so this caprese variation was born. Try it and let me know what you think! Ingredients: 4 pieces of bread (I used white bread) 4 eggs 2 slices of deli-sliced mozzarella…

Baked Eggs Ciabatta Rolls

Eggs nestled in a bed of Italian-style bread = match made in heaven. Inspired by Bon Appetit Magazine’s latest cover, wandering the bakery section of my grocery store I thought to myself, what can I put an egg on here? My eyes landed on these mini ciabatta rolls, and I was sold. Throw in the veggies…

Sriracha Mayo Breakfast Tacos

This combo came together Sims style: What can I make out of these 5 ingredients I need to use before they go bad? Thus, these vegetarian-friendly sriracha mayo tacos with tomato, salsa, avocado and soft-boiled eggs were born! I used Sir Kensington’s sriracha mayo as the base, but you can mix together sriracha and regular mayonnaise,…

Baked Eggs Bell Pepper Cups

I saw a recipe video on Facebook depicting cheesy bell pepper “pizzas” and knew immediately that I wanted to try a Mexican version of it. And I’m so glad I did – they turned out so good, I’ve now made this for both dinner and breakfast in the last week! The cilantro spread I used as…

Sun-dried Tomato Waffle Egg Cups

This savory waffle breggfast has officially been added to my list of all-time favorites! I was inspired by a local D.C. startup called SWAP Foods that makes plant-based, gluten free AND paleo frozen waffles. (Here’s my interview with their founder when I first discovered swapples last year). These cups were such a delicious way to use them….

Savory Veggie Baked Eggs Pastry

My first puff pastry eggsperiment! There are so many possibilities with puff pastry (that I’ll probably try in the future), but for now I started with a quick baked eggs and veggie combo. Try it out (it’s a quick one – doable before work) and if you make any modifications, take pics and show me! Ingredients:…

Eggs in Mac & Cheese

Two perfect foods, combined. The result of a collaboration with DC food-blogger and fellow cheese-lover, A Hole Lotta Cheese!

Egg in a Hole

You can cook an egg into almost any food, especially if there’s a hole in it! Bagels, leftover pizza, waffles, bell peppers – the list goes on. Here’s the general process I follow when I throw together an egg in a hole using the stove. This works best for foods that would burn or overcook…

Avocado Roses with Poached Eggs

This is one of the more difficult breakfasts I have attempted. If it’s your first time, I’d suggest trying these on a weekend when you have plenty of time rather than when you’re rushed before work. But they are worth the extra effort and so delicious. Ingredients: 1 avocado 2 pieces of bread 2 eggs…

Prosciutto Egg Cups

This breakfast looks fancy but requires so little work. I love starting my day with a batch of them and saving some for lunch at the office. My favorite variation uses prosciutto, but this recipe works great with bacon if that’s what you have. Ingredients: 4 strips of prosciutto or bacon 2 or 3 pieces of…
