--4HB Breakfast Scramble--

Tonight I had breakfast for dinner.  I used to love breakfast food anytime of day (can we say pancakes -- ihop? -- dennys? - yep, yummy anytime) but that was back before my lifestyle change, and I no longer eat pancakes anytime really.  BUT I do eat a lot of eggs, and tonight I didn't quite know what to fix myself for dinner.  This is what I came up with.  This would make an excellent breakfast too.  It's pretty quick, and very simple.   THIS is the way everyone should start their day!!

2 eggs
3 servings liquid egg whites (9 tbsp)
1 cup spinach
2 tbsp salsa
1/4 cup white kidney beans - drained/rinsed
1/8-1/4 cup lentils, cooked
1/4 cup turkey sausage (I used Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Crumbles)
chopped onion (to taste, I used about a tbsp)
chopped mushrooms (To taste, I used 2 medium mushrooms)

Heat frying pan over med-high heat.  Sautee sausage, beans & lentils.  Season if desired.  I used Perfect Pinch savory seasoning.  Sautee for about 5 minutes, be careful not to let anything stick.  Remove from heat, and place in a dish off to the side.  Top with Salsa. Return frying pan to stove, and spray with non stick spray.  Sautee onions & mushrooms for about a minute or two.  Add in eggs & egg whites.  Scramble/cook until done. Then add in spinach, and cook until wilted (1-2 minutes).  Top with a little s&p if desired.

  1. I personally love eating breakfast any time of day. I've really worked hard to detach "time stamps" on foods.

    "Omelets are only for breakfast."
    "Salads are only for lunch for dinner."

    My sister eats a turkey sandwich on whole wheat with avocado and a slice of cheese for breakfast several times a week. She swears by it!
