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…

Smoked Salmon Avocado Toast with Soft Boiled Eggs

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…

Bacon and Pancake Egg Cups

It’s a new twist on my prosciutto egg cups recipe! Thanks to a recent pancake kick, I’ve been looking for non-traditional ways to pair them with eggs. Why not put a new spin on that pancakes, bacon and eggs combo? Look out, Denny’s – we may have found a new grand slam (featuring buttery syrup…

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…

Breakfast in Bread – Inspired by The Barge House

As soon as this “Breakfast in Bread” video began making its way around my social media feeds, I knew I’d be attempting it soon. The viral video depicts all sorts of brunch ingredients baked into a bread bowl, a dish served by The Barge House in London. Β I bought some large dinner rolls to try…
