I need breakfast to be simple when I get up at 5:30 AM to start my work day.
A few months ago I got on a boiled egg kick and my taste for them has continued strong. I started splashing them with Texas Pete Original Flavor Hot Sauce, but that’s it. No added salt, pepper, or anything else.
I boil six eggs at a time. I let them boil hard for 5-10 minutes and then turn off the burner and let them sit in the hot water for 30-minutes. I keep them in the refrigerator and eat one at a time with a piece of fruit.
I usually eat one boiled egg and a banana at 5:30 AM, another boiled egg and a pear at 7:30 AM, and another boiled egg and an orange at 9:30. Sometimes I substitute a few strawberries, a peach, or a nectarine.
If I am hungry at 10:30 AM, I usually eat an apple, although I have been known to eat the fourth egg of the day.
Maybe this sounds boring to you, but I like it.
