Green Eggs & Bacon Toppers


This week I have been playing in the Green Grapes Blog Super Breakfast Bowl Challenge and it has been a lot of fun! Monday's challenge was to incorporate avocado into a breakfast, so I came up with something called Green Eggs & Bacon Toppers.  This dish is pretty tasty and it would also be good for lunch or dinner, paired with a soup or salad. 


To make this little creation:


1/2 avocado (mashed)
2 hard-boiled eggs (remove the yokes)
2-3 pieces of turkey bacon



Basically, you just dice the 2 hard-boiled egg whites and the turkey bacon, mix them with the avocado, add some salt and pepper to taste and voila!  Serve them atop a whole wheat English muffin.  Make sure you use freshly mashed avocado for this dish.  I referenced Incredibleegg.org on how to boil eggs.  Yes, yes I know how to boil eggs!!  But I wanted them to come out perfectly and by following these directions the eggs were just that. It hurt to throw out the yokes, but in the name of health...I did.  Now, if you are vegetarian, you can still make this dish by substituting some veggie bacon strips in place of the turkey.  

So that was Monday's breakfast. Yesterday's (Tuesday) breakfast challenge was to incorporate flaxseed into a dish. I will my post my creation at a later date because what I really want to talk about is ALL the snow we are getting in New York!!  For the first time in my career life I was dismissed early from work. It truly was a snow day, which is something unheard of in the world of corporate Manhattan!  When I got out of work, I took some lovely pictures of snow-covered trees.  It was so relaxing...



I was thinking the one above would make a nice computer wallpaper...

 

After the picture taking, I enjoyed the early dismissal with a glass of wine and some cheese & crackers, which were topped with prunes! Nothing like a little sweetness and fiber. It was a guilty pleasure (as was my afternoon) followed by a whole wheat English muffin pizza sprinkled with garlic powder.  


Maybe I should have titled this post "The Power of English Muffins" with two mentions in one post. You can put so many different foods and flavors on them and they swing more toward the healthy side since they are not huge.  Do you have a favorite way to enjoy English muffins? 

Ahhh, with that I must say goodnight...
