Breakfast Scramble

Hi everyone! It’s been a bit, huh? Well the last two weeks have been quite eventful. I was out of town for a week for my best friend’s wedding, and we also adopted a puppy! He takes up quite a bit of time but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks for your patience with the blog and I!

This recipe is for a breakfast scramble. It’s full of veggies and packed with protein. Basically, it’s perfection.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!

Breakfast Scramble


  1. 6 eggs
  2. 3 corn tortillas
  3. 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  4. Ground sausage
  5. Shredded cheese
  6. 1/2 avocado, sliced
  7. Sprouts
  8. Oil
  9. Salt and pepper


  1. Slice the tortillas into small triangle pieces. I normally slice them in half to start and then continue slicing from there.
  2. In a small pan, start to brown the sausage. Break up into smaller pieces in the pan. When the meat is almost cooked, remove from heat.
  3. In a bowl, crack the eggs and beat them to make the scramble mixture. Set aside.
  4. In a large pan or skillet, heat a small amount of oil on medium heat.
  5. When oil is heated, add the tortilla triangles. Make sure to flip them so they all have an even crispness.
  6. Once the tortillas are a golden color, add the eggs to the pan.
  7. Mix and then continue to add the bell peppers and the sausage.
  8. Cook until meat is done and eggs are a fluffy consistency.
  9. Add cheese when eggs are almost finished and mix in.
  10. Once the scramble is finished cooking, transfer to a plate and top with more cheese, avocado slices, and some sprouts.
  11. Add salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!!

Optional- add hot sauce or salsa on top!

I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as my boyfriend and I do! It’s so fun to make and tastes amazing!

Brunch Favorites

If there is one thing I won’t ever pass up, it’s brunch. Food, friends, mimosas…what’s not to love about that?

This brunch, we had some delicious huevos rancheros and avocado toast. (My personal fave!) Want to know what’s even better about this brunch? It’s SO EASY to make! It requires a few ingredients and tastes amazing!

Since I’m doing two dishes in this post, I’m going to do the formatting a little different than normal. Or at least give it a shot and see if I like it. Here we go!

Huevos Rancheros and Avocado Toast

Huevos Rancheros

To start the huevos rancheros, you need to gather all your ingredients: eggs, corn tortillas, cheese, salsa, and any other toppings you like. For the huevos rancheros pictured, the extra toppings were cilantro, bell pepper, and tomato.

Dice any of the extra toppings you chose, and set aside. Warm up your tortillas, and prepare an over-easy egg. Place the egg on the tortilla, and then top with the cheese, salsa, and remaining toppings.

How easy was that?! These can be eaten by themselves or you can serve with a side. That is where the next recipe comes in handy.

Avocado Toast

This is literally the easiest recipe, but one of my all time favorites. It requires 4 ingredients. Ready? Avocados, bread, salt, and paprika. That is it.

I used sourdough bread and it gives it a great added crunch and flavor. I also prefer to use pink Himalayan salt or sea salt because it helps to add texture as well.

Toast your bread, and while bread is toasting, mash up your avocado. It doesn’t have to be smooth, it can have some lumps/chunks in it still. Once the bread is done, spread the avocado mash on and sprinkle with the salt and paprika.

When you’ve done all that, you’re ready to eat it and enjoy!

This recipe is quick and easy. You can prepare it in advance, for an on-the-go breakfast, a snack…there are so many options!
