Breakfast food is amazing! Not just for breakfast, but lunch… and especially dinner! So while this recipe may be called appear “breakfasty”, don’t deprive yourself of deliciousness just because the time of day. 

This meal always makes me think of Saturday mornings with my siblings. We’d sit around the kitchen and talk while I made breakfast, and for some peculiar reason it was always eaten in a cup instead of on a plate. I suppose those were pre-arugula loving days though. However, I will debate that it still does taste just a little better inside of  a cup 😉

This recipe has a lot of flexibility, which is always nice if you’re looking to whip something up real quick. Since I don’t cook by recipes (making it really hard sometimes to remember to measure and write stuff down when doing these recipes) I’ve done a lot of different varieties of this same kind of dish.

The beauty is that it’s general enough that you know you could throw whatever leftovers/veggies/meat/anything hanging out in the fridge, in with the eggs and BOOM you have a meal! When I made this recipe I had a bell pepper and red onion that needed to be eaten, so this was a perfect reason to use those up. The ingredients can be anything. Over the years we’ve thrown in anything from leftover steak, to frozen pre-seasoned potatoes, to food that was going to be tossed in a day or two if it wasn’t used.

Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Meatball Meal_6-01

One of my very best friends, Melissa, introduced me to these meatballs. Since I don’t eat grains I decided to change them up a little bit, and I was really pleased with how they turned out — even though they didn’t have oats! 

We are big on making freezer meals, but did learn that these don’t seem to hold together week after being made up then frozen again. If you find a way to make them stick, post-freezer, please let me know! Otherwise, you’ve been warned 😉

These meatballs can be used several ways, but regardless they’re tasty! You can make mini meatballs and they are a great appetizer served on a toothpick. Or you can make them full size and they can be served over a variety of starches or grains. 

I paired this with the Gala Apple & Kale Salad and it was a hit! You can also pair it with:
Kale & Roasted Golden Beet Salad
Quinoa & Arugula Salad
Gourmet Asparagus

Hope you enjoy this delicious meal as much as we do!

Love,
