Snow days bring creativity! My scrambled egg pepper boats were born this morning when I had a little bit extra time to get creative! Most days, I’ll get through our morning routine and grab a couple of hard boiled eggs and a pint of grape […]

Never in a million years did I think I would enjoy vegetables for breakfast.
I was a breakfast sandwich girl through and through. I love sausage, bacon, cheese, a nice hard roll. If it went between two slices of bread, I loved it. In fact, if it had breakfast meat I loved it. I could never claim to be interested in becoming a vegan. My favorite meals include meat.
This morning, however; I was craving something different, and my creative juices started flowing. Hence, the creation of the Pepper, Squash & Egg Breakfast Boat!
We had spaghetti squash last night with dinner, and there was a bunch left over.
I grabbed the spaghetti squash, an egg (it’s breakfast, after all), almond flour, a pepper and some spices. I simply cut the pepper into rings, mixed everything else into a bowl, put the mixture into the pepper ring, and cooked it in a non-stick skillet coated with olive oil spray.
So good – and there isn’t anything in them that isn’t on my healthy eating plan! Bonus!

You’ll notice from the photos that I cooked one batch a little bit longer than another based on the coloring. That’s because my husband enjoys eggs cooked a bit longer than I do. It’s really a preference. In the end, he also added a slice of cheddar to the top of two. The possibilities are endless!
The days of mom putting dinner on the table with china while wearing her pearls and perfectly ruffled clean apron are long gone and so should be the formality of that time. Interestingly, a survey conducted by Eckrich(R), a ConAgra Foods product, found that “40 […]
