This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the happy egg co.. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ok, I know I’ve said this about 400 bazillion times but I really do have a love-hate relationship with eating and cooking breakfast. Do I like breakfast? Yes. Do I like cooking breakfast? No. Will I eat breakfast if someone else makes it for me? HECK YES! Will I sometimes break down and make my own breakfast and then think to myself, “Ok Brandy why don’t you do this more? It’s totally awesome!” Um, yes. In fact, the other day I was at the gym doing my back squats and I felt like I could barely finish my set. I’m standing there with jelly legs and I’m all annoyed at myself for feeling weak when my coach says to me “Yeah…did you eat breakfast this morning?” And then I realized I totally forgot to eat breakfast! Ugh. It’s really hard to work out when you don’t eat – ya know?

Well, I teamed up with the happy egg co. to show you how awesome it is to get your daily dose of protein and egginess. Easy breakfasts and dinners are always a struggle, but easy doesn’t have to just mean a few fried eggs and some bacon. NOPE! I’m here to show you how to get major flavor with major ease. Basically, this dish is a big skillet of flavor that simmers away and then houses the deliciousness of a few farm fresh eggs.

Oh and because I’m no fool, I also grilled up some bread to scoop out that yolky deliciousness. Which is the BEST part – am I right?

If you’re not familiar with the happy egg co. they are a true free range farm egg that gives their hens 8 acres to run around and be a hen. Happy hens, on happy farms, make happy eggs!
