September is Better Breakfast Month, and today I’m teaming up with Vital Farms to talk about one of my favorite breakfast foods: eggs!
I didn’t discover how much I loved eggs until I moved into my first apartment in college and had to figure out cooking for myself. I started with a simple fried egg, which I added to noodle soup I doctored up with frozen veggies. Primitive at best, but I was learning.
Then I learned how to make poached eggs in my food science lab my year of nutrition school, and I found my new favorite. I made them the traditional way for a few years, until one cold winter day, right around when I was starting my dietetic internship and insanely busy and exhausted, when I came home and found a note on my door. Due to a gas leak and repair, my building’s tenants would not be able to use our stoves for two weeks. Two weeks!
I immediately started googling kitchen shortcuts to find out just how much I could use my microwave for. No way was I going to blow all my money on takeout.
