VIDEO: PORTABLE OMELET RECIPE


Did you know September is Better Breakfast Month? (I just found that out myself.) Serena and I are all about breakfast here on Teaspoon of Spice.

Research has shown that breakfast eaters tend to be healthier eaters overall. If you eat breakfast (with a good ratio of carbs, protein and fat), you’ll give your body the energy it needs to start the day (remember you’ve been fasting all night – unless you’ve been sleepwalk eating.) And also you are more apt to get the nutrients, vitamins and minerals you need daily if you eat breakfast.

Not mention breakfast (IMHO) can be the most delicious meal of the day. But that can be harder to accomplish on crazy weekday mornings.

This is when I get in breakfast ruts – eating the same thing (either toast or oatmeal with PB and banana and a latte) every morning because I do it without thinking.

Not great.

So, this is a new recipe to help break up my breakfast rut – an on-the-go omelet! It’s a riff off of the Egg in a Hole, Bird in a Nest, Nest Egg – all recipe titles meaning an egg cooked into toast.

Here I made this traditional recipe a bit more substantial (like an omelet) by adding in chopped veggies and shredded cheese.

What I love about this is it takes about 5 minutes to make in the morning (I took 10 minutes to saute up the veggies the night before.) You could also save time and use canned corn, mushrooms and/or beans and skip the pre-saute altogether.
