Hi, it’s Jamie again from Bugs and Beans I’m excited to be here again and today I’m sharing an easy Powerhouse Breakfast with you! I’ve been on a bit of a health kick lately and have eaten a ton of eggs…well…I love having toast with my eggs, but I’m trying to cut back on bread. When I make this for breakfast I DO NOT miss the toast! That’s huge! So I’d like to share with you this filling breakfast!

The only thing that can take a bit of time with this breakfast is the caramelizing of the onions. BUT, it really just depends on how you like them. I’ve caramelized them for 30 minutes before and I’ve also cooked them for way less, and both has turned out equally great! So it just depends on how you feel about the sweetness of the onions that day or how much time you have.

You could also add sautéed mushrooms or any other type of veggie if you want to switch it up a bit…I prefer this way because it’s just soooooo good!

My husband has even had this and said it’s very tasty and he didn’t even miss the toast.

So let me get to this easy Powerhouse Breakfast Skillet:

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 Eggs
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 1/2 bag of Spinach/Kale or Arugula
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Olive Oil

Instructions:

  1. I use my iron skillet for this but I’m sure you can use any oven safe pan. Slice your onion and sprinkle olive oil in your pan of choice. Sauteed onion until caramelized(about 30 minutes, low and slow.)
  2. Add 1/2 bag of greens of choice. I’ve used spinach and kale and recommend these. Cook until they wilt. 3-5 minutes.
  3. Crack 3-4 eggs and make little nests for each egg by moving the greens around.
  4. Place the skillet under the broiler until your desired egg consistency . I like mine over-medium, so I cooked mine for 5 minutes under the boiler.

    I have tried many kinds of methods of cooking eggs. They are always simple. I don’t have too much time for cooking breakfast. This simple but yummy recipe seems suitable for me, thanks.
