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…

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 Crumpets

I had never had a crumpet, before. That is, until Trader Joe’s lined the checkout aisle with them the day Price Harry and Meghan Markle were married, interspersing British flags among them to really capitalize on the moment. I thought, why not? It’d be easy to fry an egg into the middle of those. So…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
