Greek Breakfast Egg Skillet

Do you ever find yourself stuck in a healthy breakfast rut or find yourself eating the same thing again and again because it’s easy? Trust me, I’m right there with you. Most mornings I’m busy trying to decipher which fruit my 4 year likes that day and which color bowl is his favorite so I know all about hectic, busy morning routines. 

Sauteed Veggie Skillet with Eggs

One weekend I recently decided to skip my usual morning smoothie and experimented with a savory breakfast which resulted in this Greek Egg Skillet with Sautéed Veggies and Feta.

My goal was simple: come up with a recipe that took the same amount of time as prepping a smoothie but was savory, high protein and low carb. I’m thrilled to share that mission: accomplished.

Spinach, peppers and onions are sautéed in olive oil and Greek spices then topped with a runny egg and creamy feta. It couldn’t be easier to make and it kept me full and satisfied until lunch. Feel free to get creative and use any veggies you have on hand or top it with scrambled, poached or hard boiled eggs. The options are endless.

Your fork is waiting.
