I cook my husband breakfast every morning….

Now for those women who don’t read the rest of this post I can just see them rolling their eyes and saying in their best Annie on Bridesmaids voice, “Oh you doooooo….” Now I understand that is super annoying, but I will share my secret. My husband thinks I am the greatest wife ever, boy do I have him fooled. I really just play outside all day with our little heathen and he works his butt off. Seriously, that guy works way too hard. If I can make his/our lives a little easier by doing something simple, you can bet I will do it!

We have tried so many different breakfast options. He likes breakfast much more than me. I am more a banana then snack at 10 then lunch at 12 kinda girl. šŸ™‚ We have tried so many different muffins, egg cups, scrambles and lately we have landed on just an egg scramble. I make it on Sunday and just like that…he has a healthy breakfast every morning. This is a Cace original, but it changes every week.

Ingredients:

1 Bell Pepper ā€“ chopped

1 small onion ā€“ chopped

2 serrano peppers ā€“ chopped (seeds in for spice)

2 handfuls fresh spinach

1 handful cherry tomatoes ā€“ sliced

1 handful cilantro ā€“ chopped

1 lb. breakfast sausage

3 ā€“ 4 slices bacon

8 eggs – whisked

Brown Sausage in large skillet. Transfer into strainer.

Cook Bacon in the same skillet. Remove ā€“ leaving behind about a tablespoon of bacon grease.

While pan is still hot, add the chopped onion. Cook medium heat for apx 3 mins. While onions are cooking chop bacon.

Add serrano and bell peppers. Cook 2 mins. Stirring occasionally to keep from burning.

Add tomato ā€“ cook 1 min

Add spinach ā€“ cook 1 min

Add browned sausage & chopped bacon

Add chopped cilantro

Pour whisked eggs over the top then mix. Stir occasionally until eggs are cooked through.

 

Transfer to a bowl and serve immediately OR let it rest uncovered at least 5 mins then cover and place in refrigerator. This will keep for about a week.

Now Chris can just spoon some out and heat in microwave or skillet on the stove every morning. I did not use seasoning BECAUSE we are pretty salt sensitive and the sausage and bacon have plenty for us.

Before I had Drake I would have crushed a breakfast like this, but starting 6 weeks pregnant with him eggs have been TOTALLY off my menu. I am just now starting to eat them again, but only certain ways. Pregnancy is so weird.

Hope you all enjoy! Drake will even smell this cooking and say.. “Mommy!! Smells Tasty!!!!!!!!!”

Enjoy!
