1. Easy Egg & Bean Breakfast Burrito

Ingredients

2 large eggs
1 tablespoon (15 ml) pepper jack cheese, grated
1 teaspoon (5 ml) cooking oil
1 (10-inch) whole-wheat tortilla

2. Pesto Egg-in-a-Hole with Bacon


Ingredients

1 slice whole-grain bread
2 slices turkey bacon
1 teaspoon (5 ml) cooking oil
1 large egg
1 tablespoon (15 ml) store-bought pesto (or leftover homemade pesto)

Directions

Cut a hole at the center of the bread using a circular 2-inch cookie cutter. Set the bread aside. Cook bacon in a small, nonstick skillet over medium heat until done, about 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Add cooking oil to the skillet and heat. Place bread in skillet. Crack egg into hole. Cook for 3–5 minutes then flip; continue cooking until the egg is set.

Spread pesto over the egg and toast. Crumble bacon on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy.

3. Veggie “Pizza” Omelet


Ingredients

1/4 cup (60 ml) bell peppers, chopped
1/4 cup (60 ml) onions, chopped
2 teaspoons (10 ml) olive oil, divided
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon (15 ml) milk
1/4 cup (60 ml) part-skim mozzarella, grated

Directions

Heat one teaspoon olive oil in a small, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the onions and peppers for 3–5 minutes. Set aside. Add remaining teaspoon of oil to the empty skillet. Whisk together the milk and eggs and pour into the skillet. Lower the heat to medium.

Using a wooden spoon, gently push cooked portions aside to allow uncooked eggs to reach the skillet bottom. Do this a few times until the bottom of the omelet starts to set. Top with the veggie mixture and mozzarella. When mozzarella melts, sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
