So I wanted to make something green today. St. Patrick’s Day is later this week and I just couldn’t think of the appropriate dish to celebrate. I thought about desserts with mint, Irish soda bread, cookies shaped like four leaf clovers, but nothing really stuck. When I set out to create something I have to be super excited about it, and these weren’t doing it for me. I was prepared to go through St. Patrick’s Day without any celebratory creations, that is until this morning when an awesome GREEN idea came over me….
Most mornings I have a fried egg and a side of sautéed greens, usually kale or spinach. This morning I set out to make my usual, then it dawned on me, why don’t I combine the two and make green eggs? And make them in a convenient muffin tin? And stuff them with avocado and cheese??
YES! This is it! Green. Festive. Very healthy. AND YUMMY!
And of course Cricket got out of bed to have a taste of what was cookin’. She got up from her dog bed (which is ON the couch lol), stretched all her legs in her usually morning routine and then scarfed down 3 of these! She approves and I’m sure you will too!
There is nothing better than avocado, eggs and cheese for a savory breakfast!
Here is a great article on The Health Benefits of Avocados.
