I woke up with a fierce hunger today, but luckily I had a master breakfast waiting for me to whip up – Cheese & Veggie Egg Skillet!
You can’t have a skillet without eggs, natch, and I used these Eggland’s Best eggs in mine.
Last night I prepped the ingredients for my skillet by portioning out some tofu, steamed broccoli, and cracking one egg + egg white + hot sauce in separate dishes.
This morning all I had to do was sauté the tofu in ~1 teaspoon of butter for a couple minutes, throw everything else in the pan, scramble, and top with some cheeeeeese! Served in a skillet because that’s one less dish I have to clean up, and because…it’s fun.
You know I like my sweet breakfasts like overnight oats and apple crisp oatmeal, but there is definitely something to be said for starting out the day with a hot, hearty savory breakfast. Ok, there’s still something to be said for a little sweet in the morning, so I took care of it with a piece of whole wheat bread + raspberry jam!
This dish also rocks because it reminds me of my Dad. Growing up, on the weekends, he always made my brothers and I eggs topped with cheese and they were so special. Thanks Pops!
For lunch I’m packing the freshness – a big, Kitchen Sink Salad!
In the mix:
- Mixed greens
- Baby carrots
- Raw broccoli
- Roma tomatoes
- Dried cranberries
Usually I can’t take raw broccoli, or raw cauliflower for that matter, but I like it chopped up real small like this!
I’ve also got two yogurts?
Nah – one is used for transporting my salad dressing! Do you reuse containers for other purposes?
Here’s the real yogurt, a Fat-Free Raspberry one. Can’t wait to dig into this baby!
Ahhh – scrambles in the morning rock! They are faster to make than oatmeal, and have serious staying power. Especially if you sneak some of that tofu in there!
PS: I organized my Dinner Recipes page, so stop by if you have a chance!
PPS: It’s a latte kind of day – a short, no foam skinny vanilla latte is awaiting!
How long do you usually have to make breakfast in the morning? More importantly, do you eat breakfast everyday?
