Eggs on Eggplant Slices

This was EGGScellent. Sorry, had to. But really, after a bit of prep work (see: pre-salting eggplant the night before), the cooking part of this recipe is too easy. And the result is a delicious, super healthy meal. Why pre-salt the eggplant? By using salt to expel moisture from the eggplant before cooking, you prevent…

No-Flip Fried Eggs Method

I tried to like frying eggs over-easy. Except it wasn’t that easy, and I became lazy. So I regularly practice the lid method instead: letting the heat of a pan cook the bottom of an egg, and covering the pan to steam the top of the egg. It only takes a few minutes, and can…

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,…

New York-Inspired Bagel with Smoked Salmon

Moving to the East Coast has taught me something important: the only place to truly get a good bagel around here is in New York City. Also, that Washington, D.C. is a bagel desert.* So, I find myself longing for deli-style bagel sandwiches frequently, and after a recent girls trip that included a stop at…

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…

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…

Eggs on Pizza: 3 Easy Methods

I’ll admit it: I’ve gone out of my way to make pizza for breakfast an acceptable meal. And I am not ashamed. Sometimes, leftovers from a late-night pizza run are all you have in the fridge Sunday morning. Sometimes, you don’t want to spend more than 5 minutes prepping your weekend brunch, so you pull…

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…

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…

Stove-top Veggie Egg Skillet

A healthy mixture I threw in a pan together after traveling and craving nutrients, this colorful skillet helped jump-start my day during a very busy month. I definitely recommend recreating this with whatever vegetables you currently have, but it certainly was delicious to combine zucchini, tomato and sweet potato in this way. Tag me in…

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…

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…
