It was a week of solid scrambled eggs! I tried to introduce variation through mix-ins and the bread/pastry component, but it was still a bit on the “same thing every day” side. I need to mix things up a bit more on the protein part of our DASH diet breakfasts!
Coffee milk, grape tomato tikka scrambled eggs w/ scallion, baguette with butter & apple butter, pear, coffee
I used the leftover gravy from chicken tikka masala to season the eggs. The cream in the tikka masala made the eggs extra rich and moist. Yum!
Being under the weather, I wanted something sweet and soothing on my baguette, so I topped it with cinnamon-spiced apple butter. Not something I do all the time, but it was pretty tasty.
Coffee milk, scrambled eggs with Ecuadorian cheese, spring onion & gray squash, oat toast with PB, apple, coffee
Coffee milk, scrambled eggs with shishito, ground beef & ginger, multigrain raisin bread w/ butter, apple & strawberries, coffee
Coffee milk, scrambled eggs with cabbage & cheese, toast w/ butter, grapefruit, coffee
Coffee milk, quiche Lorraine, baby kale, pear & strawberries, coffee
I was shifting my work hours by an hour on Thursday and needed a quick, “put it on the plate and eat it” breakfast. I picked up quiche slices the night before. That worked out well.
Hubby had a mushroom goat cheese quiche and reported that mine was better. Oh well.
Coffee milk, very green eggs (gray squash, baby kale, dill), sourdough toast with butter, apple, coffee
I saw someone’s photo of a scrambled egg that was far more green mix-ins than yellow egg, and wanted to try making it. My version with the green veggies I found in the fridge was alright, but not quite right. Maybe a bit of garlic–just something to liven it up–might improve it…
Coffee milk, sweet potato pastry, scrambled eggs with spinach & red pepper, apple, coffee
This was a now-rare breakfast with a sweet pastry. The sweet potato pastry comes from Paris Baguette, a Korean bakery chain in NYC. I used to be head over heels with this pastry, but the last couple I had have been not as stellar. 🙁 I still enjoyed it, though!
