My Favorite (and EASIEST!) Breakfast Ever

My Favorite (and EASIEST!) Breakfast Ever

If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, then you probably saw a picture like the one above this week.

Now that the weather is turning a bit warmer, I've been craving eggs and greens.

Especially a sunny-side up egg with spinach.

This dish may look like it's hard to do first thing in the AM, but let me tell ya...it takes less than 10 minutes to make.

You can use other greens, like kale, collards, dandelion greens, mustard greens...any green that you LOVE!

I always like to switch things up, but I will say, those other greens, you'll need to chop up before adding it to the mix. With the spinach, you don't. :)

So, what I do, is prep those 'other' greens on the weekend so I can just saute them up real quick during the week.

But, here's why I'm LOVIN' spinach with my egg these days.

When I mix it up like this, it reminds me of my favorite breakfast dish...eggs benedict/eggs sardou.

I make an eggs benedict with creamed spinach.  So I'm not really sure what to title it, but it's a mix of both the benedict and the sardou (minus the artichoke).

But anyway...when I cut it up like this...

It reminds me of eggs benedict-sardou.  Something I can't make from scratch all the time.

The way the creaminess yolk mixes in with the creamy spinach. ..oh-so GOOD!

It's definitely something I gobble all up, as you can see. :)

But yeah...super EASY!!

Just heat up the skillet.  Throw in some butter and coconut oil.  Add in some fresh spinach.  Saute for 3 minutes or so.  I don't let the spinach get too wilted. Place on plate.

Add in one egg.  Cook until you think it's at the point to your liking...I make sure the yolk doesn't cook through.  Place on top of spinach.

Add your favorite fruit, english muffin with peanut butter, glass of milk, green juice, bacon, canadian bacon...anything you LOVE on the side...and you have a BEAUTIFUL, QUICK and EASY breakfast.

My daughter doesn't like her eggs this way, so I just make her a scrambled egg real quick.  Easy peasy!

So if you look at my pictures and think, "Dang, how does she do it?"

Well, there you have it. I only cook and bake delicious, tasty, beautiful, quick and EASY!
