Recipes:

  • Salsa, cheese, ham, onions, peppers, tomatoes, cottage cheese, mushroom...pretty much any veggie

  • Herbs, English muffin or whole wheat toast
  • Baked zucchini, onion, and feta
  • Tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella
  • Egg "muffins": mix up your eggs with whatever mixins (sauteed mushrooms, onions, peppers, etc, whatever precooked meat, ham, bacon, sausage, whatever and of course add some cheese!) Then put in muffin tins and bake.
  • When scrambled eggs are partially set, toss in a big bunch of baby spinach, some slivers of thin sliced prosciutto and a tiny pinch of red pepper flakes. Garnish with freshly grated real parmesan cheese.
