Never in a million years did I think that this is what my breakfast would look like on some days. Mostly because there was a time when I didn't even eat breakfast. One glum morning as I set out to make breakfast, I was craving the most random things: spinach, a MorningStar "sausage" pattie and an egg, sunny side up. I contemplated it for a few minutes (these cravings! random much?) and decided to make a spin on the breakfast salads I have seen around the interwebz.

This...salad? has easily become one of my favorite breakfast meals. For this specific "salad" I first sautee a bit of baby spinach with olive oil and garlic and plate it as the base. In the mean time, I warm the sausage pattie in the toaster oven and once that is ready, I plate that on top of the spinach. Next, I cook the egg enough so that the egg is still a bit runny to create a bit of a "dressing."  A little salt and pepper to taste and the end result is a great tasting and healthy breakfast.


  1. that looks like a great breakfast to me!
    I love eggs - I'm really proud of myself for finally perfecting my cheese omelets.

  2. Kudos to you for the breakfast! As much as I would love to say that it sounds and looks delicious...that runny egg just doesn't do it for me LOL But hey, you're eating it, not me :)  Speaking of healthy breakfasts, I've been on a kick lately and made some delicious cranberry muffins and some classic scones...yum!
