Yowza Healthy!

Do you like egg salad? My version may be a little different than yours, but I can guarantee, this one is packed with flavor (and it is yowza healthy).

Except for the Feta, everything you see in the photo up there typically comes from our garden. (The eggs came from a friend on this particular morning, and the cherry tomatoes are store-bought as it’s too early yet for those. When we are a little bit further into the season, my egg salad ingredients come from home).

At times I want something a bit more substantial and may add a piece of my husband’s grandmother’s shortcake, but usually, the only thing I vary in this recipe is the berries.


I warm olive oil in my small fry pan. I never measure.

While the eggs are cooking, I prepare my plate with berries, and the spinach and lettuce I’ve grown in pots in my greenhouse.

These are the main ingredients I use to create this lovely dish.

What is your YOWZA breakfast?
