California Toad in a Hole



California Toad in a Hole…


I’m kind of a funny breakfast person. I HAVE to eat breakfast. I mean, I seriously cannot survive without it. But, I am a picky breakfast person. I don’t like anything too heavy or too sweet for breakfast. Like I’ll have pancakes, but while my hubby and kids eat them with chocolate chips and syrup I’ll usually just have a smear of jam on them. Or I may make muffins, but I’ll usually only have one. You would never find me eating sausages, bacon, eggs and toast for breakfast. It’s just too much. It gives me a tummyache. I do love cereal though. Special K is one of my favorites.


The other morning we were all home and I asked my 5 year old what she wanted for breakfast. She said Bacon and the hubby said eggs. Hmmmm ok. Well, I didn’t want scrambled eggs and we did have an avocado. So why not something a little different? It turned out oh so yummy. That sprinkle of kosher salt (though sea salt would have been awesome too) was exactly what this breakfast needed.

Eggs are loaded with high-quality proteins, vitamins, minerals, good fats and various trace nutrients.

Eggs are rich in iron, phosphorus, selenium and vitamins A, B12, B2 and B5.


How Long Will Eggs Keep? 

Eggs will keep for 5 weeks in the refrigerator.

You can also freeze eggs for up to 1 year.

Are Avocados High in Fat?

Avocados are high in fat.

But it’s monounsaturated fat, which is a “good” fat that helps lower bad cholesterol.
