Monday Breakfast

I woke up this morning feeling well rested (jk, I never feel well rested) and made my usual delicious breakfast. I like to change it up, & today I was feeling cinnamon roll waffles. I figured I needed some protein to get through this dreadful Monday, so I scrambled one egg. I also had half a peach, but I only had it because my plate looked way too empty without it. Obviously, I had my usual black coffee for some extra oomph this morning. Here’s what you need!

Ingredients

  • One brown egg
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Pillsbury cinnamon roll dough and icing
  • Half a peach
  • Cooking spray- olive oil & non-olive oil
  • Hot sauce- optional

Prep

I scrambled my egg with a dash of milk and salt and pepper to taste. Spray the pan enough so the eggs don’t stick. While that was cooking, I put the cinnamon roll dough into my super cute mini waffle maker. Make sure you spray it with a non-olive oil based cooking spray. I use PAM.

Cook the cinnamon roll waffle until it’s golden brown and carefully remove it from the waffle maker. Ice it with however much icing makes you happy. You deserve it, it’s Monday. I topped my eggs with some Red’s hot sauce to spice things up (literally). Complete your plate with half a peach- I leave the skin on, ’cause *most* things are better with skin (lol). There you have it- Nicki’s Monday breakfast. Side-note: I didn’t taste a peach until like a week ago. They’re pretty good.

My coffee of choice is Starbucks Breakfast Blend. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I usually just add two organic cane sugar packets. If you want something sweeter without the creamer (kind of rhymes, right?), sprinkle on some cinnamon and stir it in.

Easy peasy! You have no excuse not to eat breakfast- it’s the most important meal of the day for a reason! Give yourself the energy you need on a Monday & #eatwithme. In case you’re wondering where my adorable mug is from, I bought it yesterday at Forever 21. Their new home collection is so cute! Make sure you check it out here.

Happy Mondaying,

Nicki G.
