This summer I've been posting SO many DIY's and recipes. I've been cooking and baking (as well as creating!) everyday. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that come September I will be back to a diet of dining hall food & fro-yo. I mean realistically, my school was voted to have some of the best food in Boston, and the surrounding area has SO many amazing restaurants and cafes, so I will certainly be eating well & deliciously, however I am definitely going to miss making my own meals. That being said, one of my favorite meals to make is brunch. I normally have an early morning green smoothie, and around lunch time, a few days of the week I make myself a delicious breakfast style lunch. I used to hate eggs, but recently rediscovered my love for the protein & nutrient packed food and haven't looked back since. Here is healthy brunch, two ways;
If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen the above photo. A little glimpse to my average brunch. I like my organic farm fresh eggs (from my neighbor!) cooked thoroughly, no runny yokes for this girl. I also sliced up an avocado for some healthy & essential fats. And added some potato. I have a serious love for hash browns, or shredded potatoes, but not that frozen stuff. I shred a potato (locally grown and organic) toss it in a little olive oil, homemade Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, and throw it in a waffle maker until golden brown. Sometimes I add a slice of multi-grain toast, garden fresh tomatoes, mushrooms or turkey sausage onto the plate as well. A healthy & well balanced plate.
The second thing I love doing is making a breakfast in a ramekin. I think they are so cute, and fun for a breakfast party, or family gathering.
Mashed Potatoes (I used leftovers from dinner the night before)
Organic Farm Fresh Egg
Freshly Grated Organic Parmesan Cheese
Homemade Italian Seasoning (although you can use store bought)
-Preheat oven to 350 F.
-Grease your ramekin(s) with olive oil.
-Line with a thick layer of mashed potato (I added some homemade Italian seasoning in)
-Crack your egg into the potato lined ramekin.
-Cover with a layer of Parmesan cheese & Italian seasoning.
-It would also be fun to add fresh tomatoes, spinach, basil, or some sort of breakfast meat (if you eat meat)!
-Bake for 20-40 minutes depending on how you like your eggs. (For me it was 40).
-Check progress every so often with a toothpick if you are unsure!
-Enjoy your individualized, delicious, & healthy breakfast!
What's your favorite brunch?
