Easy Winter Breakfast
Good morning. Hope you all are staying nice and warm. What’s on the menu for breakfast? Though I’ve got some oatmeal at my desk (same as it ever was), I’m sort of wishing it was this concoction I enjoyed over the weekend:
Once upon a time, I thought breakfast came in a brown paper packet that you added hot water to. Learning how to make basic rolled oats at the ripe old age of 23 was kind of a game-changer. Since then, things have only gotten better—and weirder.
Of course, I know there are plenty of you out there who are, like, eggs & rice, nbd, Jess. But when you add caramelized onion, kale, and goat cheese to said eggs (or egg whties) and rice, it really makes the morning meal that much more special. That’s a lot of “m”s, huh?
This isn’t so much a recipe as an idea of a recipe—a delicious, nutritious sketch, if you will. All you need for this is some cooked brown rice, some kind of protein like cooked eggs or egg whites, and whatever cooked veggies your little heart desires. Next time I’m throwing in some mushrooms because this umami tooth is not f***ing around. Just please don’t forget the onions!
What’s your favorite breakfast of late?
