All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast. ~John Gunther

Boosting your veggie intake for breakfast is a great way to hit your 5 a day. It will fill you up, enhance your vitamins and mineral intake and tastes delicious. Baked eggs are eggs baked in a cast iron pan and loaded with whatever vegetables in the fridge. I had cherry tomatoes, red peppers, cucumber and mint. I added tomatoes and red peppers and cumin to the baked eggs. I prepared side dressing of cucumber, mint and cottage cheese. Surprisingly, it complimented the baked eggs very well.  Don’t knock it, till you try it.  Chill out with warm water and lemon, coffee or green tea while you wait for the palpable smell to waft throughout the house.


What you will need:

* Cast Iron Pan was used to bake the eggs in the oven.
