Baked Eggs

Another Pinterest find: baked eggs! I’ve seen recipes like this all over Pinterest and I thought it was time I gave it a try. I’ve already said how I’m all about convenience in the morning so this works out perfectly! The possibilities are really endless for what you can do with baking eggs but I decided to keep it rather simple. I used a muffin tin and cracked an egg in each cup.

The basic directions are to bake the eggs at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Before putting them in the oven I added in broccoli and spinach and mixed it all together. Cheese or any meat like bacon, turkey, or ham would be great additions. These are great to freeze for later use.

So delicious and so easy! Definitely a win win!

Strawberry Yogurt Bread

I’m real quick getting ready in the morning. I’m talking like alarm goes off at 6:46 (random I know) and I’m out the door by 6:58. I am also one of those people that can’t really function without breakfast so I love having things I can grab and go.

I came across this recipe by Peanut butter and Peppers for Strawberry Yogurt Bread and thought it would be perfect for those grab and go breakfasts! It’s not a very sweet bread, which I like. It tastes great with a tablespoon of peanut butter or even almond butter! Here’s a copy of the recipe below:

I made this in one loaf instead of 3 minis and even though my cuteness factor was missing, it still came out great!
I love recipes with substitutions to make the nutritional content a bit better and yogurt is a great substitute for fat like oils and butter and still keeps the bread moist!
