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,…

Trader Joe’s Prosciutto & Spinach Frozen Pizza Hack

If you’ve never incorporated a good frozen pizza into your breakfast, you’re missing out. I’ve written about this before, but I’ve got a new pizza idea for you to try. Grab Trader Joe’s frozen prosciutto-burrata-spinach pizza (which is really good on its own by the way!) or any similar pizza from your local grocery store,…

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…

Sausage, Pepper and Spinach Whole 30 Egg Cups

Here’s another Whole 30 egg cups variation I made for a function with friends who are eating clean! We each made a dish for a potluck brunch and even us non-Whole 30 eaters left feeling full and satisfied. Unlike the other Whole 30 egg cups I made earlier this month, this version whisks the eggs…

Updated: Valentine’s Baked Eggs Puff Pastry Hearts

Real talk – I tried making this for Valentine’s Day last year, and kind of blew it. I attempted to put too much on the puff pastry before adding the eggs, which slid right off while they baked, leaving nothing but the weird looking yolks (see Instagram picture below). One year on, I’m improving the…

Tomato & Red Pepper Egg Cups (Whole 30 approved)

It was a coworker’s birthday, so I wanted to make a festive breakfast snack, and 2 members of our team are participating in the Whole 30 diet. I raided my refrigerator for acceptable ingredients and came up with this simple egg cup variation, that was enjoyed by Whole30 colleagues and the rest of us alike!…

10-Minute Shakshuka with Mina Sauce

Shakshuka is one of the most luxurious brunches you can make for yourself – slowly simmering the eggs in spicy tomato sauce, topping it with crumbled cheese or veggies, and dipping a piece of crusty bread in it as a reward for your time spent at the stove. While I typically cobble together a sauce…

Breakfast Potato Skins

Love this sports bar appetizer and want an excuse to eat them before noon? #PutAnEggOnIt! I did, and I highly recommend it. Full disclosure: this breakfast takes a long time to make right, so I strongly suggest saving it for a slow, luxurious weekend morning. I made it on Thanksgiving to tide us over until…

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…

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…

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…
