Friday Funnies and Breakfast Pizza

Tee-Gee-I-Effff!

Anyone else feel like it took two weeks for Friday to finally get here? It’s just been one of those weeks for me (probably because I was working late AND have been battling this sinus funk that seems to be going around)…needless to say, I could use a little lighthearted humor to start my weekend off right!

That last one killed me!

Hope you guys enjoyed those…now how about that breakfast pizza, huh?

For the last few weeks, thanks to the drop in the temperatures around here (really Mother Nature…make up your friggin mind already), I have practically LIVED off of oatmeal. Not that that is a problem, but this week, having a bit more time for breakfast, I decided to change things up a bit.

Who around here likes omelets?

Ok, now who likes actually MAKING omelets?

You know, you crack the eggs, let them spread and coat the skillet, fill them with delicious goodies, pause to admire how beautiful the colors are, and then slap yourself on the forehead after you “try” to flip it and are left with some sort of egg-tastrophe that nowhere near resembles the picture you had in your head…

Plus there’s the time, the precision…omg, who has that kind of time?!

My solution: Don’t flip!

AND…while your at it…why not get really wild and turn it into a pizza!

Yeah, I know…I’m brilliant 😉

I was a little curious about the stats so I plugged it into a calorie counting website and was pretty impressed with what came out:

33 grams of protein?! Heck yeah!

Now the recipe/nutritional facts is for the original version that I first started with. Since then, I’ve made it two other times (and can see it appearing more in future breakfasts) and changed up the veggie “filling” and toppings…

Really guys, the sky’s the limit with this!

You don’t have to keep it traditional…

Switch out the greens…I used Swiss chard in this one…add some Mexican seasonings and top it with some salsa and cilantro for a little “Latin flair”…

Or why not use the oil from a jar of sun-dried tomatoes instead of olive oil, top with tomatoes, olives, and sprouts (just because you saw them in the fridge) and go Greek…would have been even better had I had a little feta cheese to go on top.

Open wide!

**WAAAAAAAAAAAAAIT!**

Hold the presses!

This just happened for lunch:

Can I interest anyone in a slice of dessert “pizza”??

Close your eyes…well, after you read this next part….and think how amazing a bite of creamy melty peanut butter, spicy cinnamon, warm banana slices and toasted coconut tastes…

Now go make this!
