Prosciutto Goat Cheese Breakfast Crostini

Before adding eggs, this crostini combination was one of my favorite appetizers to bring to parties. One morning after such a party, I used the leftover prosciutto, goat cheese and arugula and added two poached eggs topped with drizzly olive oil and vinegar for breakfast. It was amazing. This time, I repeated that meal, but…

Eggs Baked in Butternut Squash Penne with Goat Cheese

This was inspired by baked ziti, a traditional Italian pasta dish. Lacking ziti noodles, and craving the combo of butternut squash and goat cheese, I cooked up this comfort food breakfast with penne, instead. The yolks were a wonderful complement to the sauce and cheese! Also, I happened to have gluten-free chickpea pasta so that’s…

Cloud Egg Muffins

The cloud egg trend has taken Instagram by storm, which fascinates me, because I’ve never thought they were very aesthetically-pleasing. But I’m an egg Instagrammer, so I couldn’t let the trend run its course without trying my variation on them: the cloud egg muffin. Essentially, I made cloud eggs, but in a muffin tin, so…

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…

Eggs in Shell Pasta with Vodka Sauce

Featuring gluten-free chickpea pasta! (not required, but a good choice if you’re craving real pasta and can’t have it). I recently had the opportunity to try this chickpea-based pasta by Banza, and as someone who CAN have regular pasta, I can tell you that it was GOOD! But what isn’t good, smothered in cheesy vodka…

Poached Eggs On Sweet Potato Toast with Avocado and Goat Cheese

I don’t claim to be a health-food blog, but I feel so good after making this alternative-to-bread breakfast! I was inspired by the many delicious-looking sweet potato toasts fellow-blogger Skylar Allen makes (see her Instagram). While Skylar roasts hers in the oven, I, being impatient, grilled mine over the stove. It turned out so good,…

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…

Spicy Spinach Eggs with Greek Yogurt

This recipe starts your day with a healthy kick of greens, and looks beautiful. I was inspired by this version from Bon Appetit mag (that is a little more involved) and adapted it into a quicker, possible-before-work meal. It’s great for weekend brunch, too, though – I hope you enjoy it! Ingredients: 2 eggs Olive oil…

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….
