greek-inspired spinach breakfast salad

by Jackie Newgent  |  December 28, 2018  |  0 Comments
Sure, a spinach and feta omelet is a comforting, breakfast-y pick. But how about a spinach and feta salad in the morning? Do it! I adore doing salad for breakfast or brunch. You get the deliciousness of an omelet along with extra nutritiousness. Plus, it’ll satisfy until your next meal without giving you that uncomfortably full feeling. In fact, don’t just reserve this salad for breakfast; it’s equally lovely for lunch or dinner. Hope you try it soon!

sweet potato hash brown breakfast skillet

If you’re looking for a weekend breakfast or brunch dish for two, this colorful Sweet Potato Hash Brown Breakfast Skillet is an ideal pick. Everything goes into one skillet—and it’s served from the skillet. So, you don’t have to worry about lots of pots to cleanup. But the best part is this is a scrumptious, 100% satisfying meal-in-one. And it’s an awesome way to get veggies. Try it … for lunch or dinner, too. (I do!)

simple middle eastern scramble

by Jackie Newgent  |  August 30, 2018  |  0 Comments
When in doubt for what to fix for dinner, I scramble up some eggs for my entrée. Yep, I think of eggs as an anytime food, not just a breakfast-time fix. Then I top them with whatever I have on hand that I think will taste good together—-or that I don’t want to go to waste. I seriously don’t know if I’ve ever made the exact same version twice. That’s part of the fun! Today, I had a serious amount of fresh mint growing in one of the pots on my balcony; so, I figured I’d create a scramble with middle eastern flair. In addition to the fresh mint leaves, I topped these eggs with a sprinkling of harissa to...

egg & guacamole breakfast salad

I’m definitely one of those people who enjoys cooking and taking my time with it. But I’m also a realist. There are some mornings I simply don’t have 30 extra minutes to spare. On many of those days, this is one of my “short-cut” recipes that’s so delightful, yet only takes me about 5 minutes to fix. It’s loosely inspired by huevos rancheros. But there are three secrets to this salad. One of the secrets is making sure all of the ingredients are ready to go in the evening to assure it’s a quick-fix for breakfast time. Another is using the best quality “short-cut” ingredients, like a packaged triple-washed salad (my choice in this recipe is Whole Foods Organic Spring...

breakfast egg sandwich with sage flowers

by Jackie Newgent  |  June 21, 2018  |  0 Comments
I “crave” a hearty breakfast sandwich probably about once a week. How ‘bout you? Though, I never seem to make the same exact sandwich twice since I like to keep it highly seasonal and use whatever ingredients I have on hand. But there are a few things that are consistent … my breakfast sandwich always includes an organic egg (sometimes two!), lots of veggies, and plenty of flavor. It’s basically a loose inspiration of a fast food breakfast sandwich, but you’ll never find preservative-laden sausage or Canadian bacon or overly-processed American cheese on mine … and they’re not missed!   This version includes sage flowers, which kinda provide a sausage-like flavor essence. Though do top it with whatever edible flowers...
