Fried Cauliflower

These are so good! This is a super simply recipe that’s been in my family for a long time. While these are fried, you’re still getting lots of protein from the eggs AND you’re getting your intake of veggies! Who says you can’t have it all? I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Frittata with Tomatoes and Scallions

The first thing I learned how to cook were eggs. Once I got this down I tried a bunch of different variations with eggs. That’s all I knew how to cook when I was a kid but it was exciting because I got to use different ingredients every time to change it up.

I’ve come a long way since then but that still happens with me with new recipes that I’ve never cooked before. I’m always looking to change a traditional recipe by mixing it up with different ingredients.

I like eggs because they are so versatile…you can cook them so many ways and you can put anything you want in them.

When I have a few people over at my house for breakfast and one person wants sunny side up, the other scrambled and someone else a frittata, I know I can make it work. Eggs are a crowd pleaser all around.
