sloppy breakfast [#2]

welcome to part II of my Round 2 Recipes! it transforms my philly-style sloppy joe recipe into an incredibly hearty and delicious breakfast option. it only takes 4 ingredients [including the sloppy joe mixture] the other 3 are ingredients that I like to keep in my fridge for occasions like this!

1. cooked quinoa >> you can throw into just about any dish [soup, salad, eggs, etc.] to get some added protein and make the dish that much more filling.

2. leafy greens >> arugula and/or spinach brightens and lightens up any dish and provides tons of nutrients.

3. eggs >> over-easy eggs and soft-boiled [jammy] eggs not only add protein, but also provide somewhat of a creamy dressing from breaking open the yolks.

to make a quick and runny over-easy egg >> crack the eggs [or egg + egg white] into a lightly-greased sauté pan over medium heat. once the egg white begin to bubble & turn white, pour about 1 Tbsp. of water into the pan and place a lid onto the pan. let it cook for a couple of minutes, until the egg whites have cooked and the yolk is still jiggly. you can find my recipe for the perfectly cooked jammy egg under 'related posts'
