Strange and Eggy

Hey, hey, HEY! Happy Friday! 😀

Who’s up for some #strangebutgood breakfast this morning?

Strange But Good S2TT

Can you believe it’s been over a MONTH since I contributed to Laura’s link party?!

Crazy, I know, but let me ASSURE you I have yet to quit my strange eating ways. Nope, I’ve just been hoarding them for a few weeks! I’ll be sharing some amazing oatmeal creations very soon, but as far as today?

Today it’s ALL about the eggs…duh, note the post title! 😉

Eggs

As you guys know, I’ve been getting my fill of the yella stuff for the last few weeks, BUT it hasn’t been ALL about the yolk (just mostly! ;))

1Who says white guys eggs can’t jump be pornirific?

Hmm, too much? 😉

I woke up with a craving for eggs…and cheese (nothing new) but this time I wanted something a bit different…something sweet! Well, since I just happen to be the proud owner of a log of cranberry goat cheese, it took me all of about 30 seconds to for me to start drooling on myself come up with a recipe!

Grilled Spinach, Walnut, & Cranberry Goat Cheese Wrap

Midway through cooking, I started thinking of Morgan’s breakfast on the run wraps so I couldn’t resist pressing mine panini style. Of course, you can always fix yours as a normal wrap, but I swear, grilling/pressing takes it to a whole new level of YUM!

And jusssssst in case my little sweet and cheesy eggs are straaaaaaange enough for you, I thought I’d share another little egg white creation that happened a couple of weeks ago…

Eggs in a Jar + Coffee

Chocolate eggs in a jar, anyone?

Allow me to explain my thought process here (it DOES actually make sense)…

I FINALLY finished off my jar of cookie butter so OBVIOUSLY I had to have breakfast out of it. I was freezing that morning and all I could think of was getting warm, but I didn’t want oatmeal…I really wanted cereal…but again, I was cold.

Sooooooo I scrambled up some egg whites with cocoa powder and almond milk, threw it in my jar, topped it with cereal and banana, added a bit of almond milk,
and grabbed my spoon!

Eggs in a Jar

You say strange…I say good DELICIOUS!

Now hop on over to Sprint to the Table, give Laura a holler and see what kind of strangeness the other gals are getting into this week!

Are you a fan of sweet eggs?
Before you judge…tell me, what’s a crepe?? 😉

Any big plans for the weekend?
Tonight I’m having dinner with my two best friends from high school and Saturday I plan to live it up as best I can before having to go to work on Sunday night…duh duh duuuuuh!

  1. I love sweet eggs! I know a lot of people think they’re totally gross but I think of them as French Toast minus the bread… My favorite sweet combination is cinnamon raisin eggs :) Or in the winter I loved adding fresh cranberries but haven’t seen those in ages.

    P.S. I’ve made an microwaved egg mug “cake” with cereal cooked right in – love it! Although, it would be better eaten out of an almost empty PB jar…

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Omg, I should have known…the queen of cereal pancakes!! Haha! Love it! And YES!! Just like French toast or crepes…how can people not see that??

  2. I don’t eat a lot of eggs, but I was trying to find ways to enjoy them because I know they’re good for me! I think that wrap sounds delicious! I love goat cheese!

  3. Yum both of those things look delicious!

  4. Love both the looks of the wrap and the EIAJ! Especially the last one. Anything with banana and nut butter is an A++ idea!

  5. lindsay says:

    this is so… EGGCELLENT! goat cheese and cranberry combos have been our staples lately, now i just need to through in the white guys. 😉

  6. I am ALLLLL about sweet eggys. I LOVE my scrambled eggwhites with tons of cinnamon and vanilla (and that orange spice for the pearbread I sent you – delicious in eggs!!) topped with almond and coconut butter. YUMMYNESS!!
    And I can not wait for your oatmeal creations!!
    Giiiirl, that grilled-wrap-panini looks sooo good. I might not crave it for breakfast, but this would by my perfect lunch and dinner!!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ahhhh, omg, you better BELIEVE I’m having some pearbread spiced eggs before this week is up!! YUMMMMMM!

  7. Now I’m excited to finish off my cookie butter jar so I can eat breakfast out of it. Best idea ever.

    I actually can’t really do sweet eggs. I can have a fried egg on top of oatmeal for a sweet/savoury thing, but full-blown sweet eggs just does not sit right with me.

  8. Yayyyy! Thanks for the shout out! Cranberry goat cheese, cinnamon and walnuts!? YUM! Has my name all over it! :) Love the grill marks too, definitely going to have to try it panini style! :)

  9. Given my natural inclination to want sugar in ALL things, I have to say that I’m definitely a fan of sweet eggs. Actually, I remember when I first started making my own scrambled eggs when I was just learning how to cook… I’d always make them with cinnamon and vanilla, and then eat them with maple syrup. To be honest, I actually prefer sweet eggs to French toast. But that’s not something I admit in public, out of a fear that the French toast lovers will come after me 😉

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! Well, I do consider myself to be a bit of a French toast aficionado, but I can TOTALLY see where you’re coming from! I actually just tried honey on my scrambled eggs recently and have been thinking about trying maple syrup next…on the list for this week for sure! :)

  10. Strange but good hoarding. I love it! The thought of a log of cheese just makes me smile. There’s something slightly dirty about it… Hahahaha!

    I’ve been meaning to try egg whites in a jar. This will be happening as soon as I can have eggs again. 8 days. You better believe Waffle House will be happening.

  11. Yay! I have been excited to see this recipe. It sounds SUPER tasty :). Plus, it looks amazing, and I definitely eat with my eyes first!

  12. Sonia the mexigarian says:

    Oh boy that wrap looks delicious. I love goat cheese and cranberries. And love eggs! I never would have thought putting them together. Yum.

    A crepe is like a very thin pancake. We call the palachintas in Hungary and fill them wih sweetened cottage cheese and raisin, sweetened sour cream, jams, and chocolate when doing sweet. It can also be savory.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh wow, I’ve made a few crepes in my day, but I’m really liking the ideas you have for fillings! I’ll take TWO…one sweet and one savory! 😉

  13. Oh, I think that wrap looks absolutely delicious!! Goat cheese is my favorite cheese . . . and paired with walnuts and cranberries, you can’t go wrong! Happy Friday! :)

  14. Lauren says:

    Sorry to be the only downer who can’t stomach the though of sweet eggs. I just keep thinking about how much I hate when my maple syrup runs off my pancakes and into my eggs!

  15. I’m going to take advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend and go HIKING! :)

  16. Sarah says:

    Ok girl….you KNOW this breakfast wrap is being made ASAP in my house!! Fruit and goat cheese!? Is there anything better?!! Sooo delicious! I hope you enjoy your last few days before back to work!!! Have an awesome weekend Heather!

  17. The wrap sounds really good! I love adding goat cheese to eggs and im sure walnuts would also be a tasty addition.

  18. LOVE sweet eggs! And this looks delicious btw! I’m not a huge goat cheese fan though. Although it sounds delicious. Maybe I just need to get used to it!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      I think it does have a bit of an acquired taste due to the tartness of it, but if you can find some with flavor/seasoning in it (herbs and spices for savory) or rolled in fruit/jam like the one I have, it really is a whole different taste! Trader Joe’s has a blueberry vanilla one that is TO DIE FOR!!

  19. Allie says:

    Nothing with goat cheese is “strange” in my book, the “good” outweighs any potential weird ;D Mmm, had eggs for lunch (well, egg), now your post makes me want MORE egg!

  20. i always add cocoa to my egg whites! when i make my “powercake” (which is basically egg whites and pumpkin) i always add cocoa powder, or my click mocha protein powder. chocolate eggs are the best!!!

    my cookie butter jar is taking forever to finish (when you have 6 jars of pb open it’s kind of hard to finish one quickly) but chocolate eggy’s in it sound amazing!

  21. Jessie says:

    Oh I love “eggs in a jar”!!!

    work on a Sunday? Well that just sounds horrible, and not fair whatsoever!

  22. I love sweet eggs.. hence eggs with honey! :) A crepe is a very thin pancake that can be rolled with all kinds of good stuff in the middle! Delicious! Especially with Nutella and strawberries….

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh I definitely know my way around a crepe…one of my favorite fillings was a mixture of cottage cheese, banana, and peanut butter! I was just trying to get people to think about other variations of sweet eggs! And I swear, I will forever be in your debt for you introducing me to eggs and honey! Mmmmm!

  23. I’m not really a fan of sweet eggs (unless you count egg whites in oatmeal… or meringues!), but that wrap looks like just the right ratio of sweet to savoury. Plus you can never go wrong with goat cheese!

    As for my weekend plans, I went to a 7 course fundraiser dinner last night (and I’m still omgsofull) then today I’m going to my great great aunt’s 97th birthday. Hope you have a great weekend girl!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh WOW!! I don’t know what’s more impressive…a seven course dinner or a 97 year old great aunt!! That’s awesome!

  24. Kat says:

    Maybe I’ve been a fan of yours for way too long, but neither of these seem too “strange” to me. They both sounds down right delicious!! Anything wrapped in goat cheese is a winner in my book anyway though 😉

  25. Even though I don’t like eggs at all – can you believe I haven’t had a single sunny-side up (or else) fried egg in my life? – your fondness of them [egg shell] cracks me up ;). I’ll take the wrap minus the eggs, thank you :).
    Boo, working on Sundays sucks but I’m sure you’ll reward yourself with some eggy kitchen fun before or afterwards. Hope it doesn’t get too stressful!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      [egg shell] cracks me up <- Hahahaha! LOVE it! And just for you m'dear...I would whip up an eggless wrap ANY day!! Though I do think you should have a runny egg at least ONCE before you die! 😉

  26. Holy lord almighty!! Why didn’t you show me those sweet eggs in your cookie butter jar earlier?! I’m dying over here!!

  28. Oooh, cranberry goat cheese sounds divine. You could pair it with anything in my book. In fact, you could stuff it in a crepe if you felt so inclined. I haven’t had crepes in forever, but they are amazing and basically light and thin pancakes which you could stuff anthing into. They’re also French, and you need to let the batter rest for awhile before actually cooking them so plan accordingly. Then again, you probably already know that.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Yes ma’am! I’ve made a few crepes in my day…though I don’t really have much patience for them (does that REALLY surprise you?!) I just want all the sweet egg haters out there to think outside the box shell and recognize! <- Picture me saying that with a little head-bobbing sassy action in there! 😉

  29. calee says:

    I think the word “porn” in relationship to food irks me, except for the fact that it’s kind of a bit ridiculous when in relationship to eggs, because, well, think about it.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh yes, I HAVE thought about it…and it makes me giggle every time! Though now, I have this sudden urge to run to the store for some sausage links…and maybe a couple of meatballs! 😉

  30. So, awhile ago you commented on my blog about how sad you were that I couldn’t have cheesy eggs…but I tried some goat cheese at the farmers market a couple of weeks ago…and it was OK! So maybe I CAN get on board with that. :) As for sweet eggs, I can’t say I’ve had chocolate eggs…except, oh wait, microwave muffins are essentially that! Also, honey on eggs? DELICIOUS.
