Breakfast: How Not to Be Boring

Breakfast can be the most repetitive meal of the day for the average American with minor cooking skills. A lot of us who don't have the luxury of eating out every day get stuck with the same foods over and over like cereal, bacon and eggs, sausage, toast, bagels, english muffins, and other reasonable breakfast-y type foods. Sometimes having scrambled eggs is the best thing in the world, but other times it just gets boring really fast.

I went out searching for interesting ways to cook eggs because eggs are delicious and keep me full throughout the day better than hot or cold cereal. I finally stumbled across little mini omelets baked in a muffin tin from Nerd Fitness and decided to try them.

Two eggs, a batch of diced up onions, and three slices of bacon later I had these lovely little egg cakes wrapped in bacon. Of course, I didn't stop there and had two slices of toast with butter and some Strawberry/Cocoa fruit spread that I got from our local Farmer's Market.

This filled me up all day! I didn't even have much of a lunch or dinner just because I wasn't hungry. I had a little chicken wrap for my lunch and some crackers as my home from work snack along with lots of water, but I really wasn't hungry. Best of all, it was really easy to do. The hardest part of making the meal was figuring out how long to cook the eggs for in the oven because it was my first time baking eggs.

The moral of this little story is to wake up earlier in the morning to prepare and bake these eggs for your family. They are delicious, easy to make, and the pay off is fantastic! I just have to remember I said that so I'll wake up earlier on Sunday and prepare these little things again for my entire family. They will love them.
