Open-Faced Breakfast

Open-faced Breakfast Sandwich stephanie-spring.comOpen-faced Breakfast Sandwich stephanie-spring.comI love slow mornings just as much as productive ones. I love being spontaneous as much and I love routine. I love new creations as much I love go-to’s. The other morning I tried my hand at mixing some flavors together and embracing the unknown of how it would turn out. This is 100% Eric’s forte more than mine. That being said, after the first bite I think I gave him a run for his money.¬†ūüėČ


  • One bunch of green onions, washed and diced
  • One organic egg
  • One piece of Ezekiel Bread
  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons Vegenaise
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • Homemade ketchup (found, here!)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon of unsalted butter


What to do:

In a small pan, melt the butter on medium heat. Add three fourths of the green onions. Stir until they are slightly browned. Add the egg over the green onions in the pan. Toast the Ezekiel bread. Once it is toasted, spread the Vegenaise onto the toast, followed by the avocado. Use a fork to slightly press the avocado into the toast. Place the cooked egg and green onions on top of the toast. Place one tablespoon of ketchup onto the egg and sprinkle the remaining uncooked green onions on top. I use a forked to eat it and savor every bite!


Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola--Recipe at: Homemade Granola--Recipe at: Homemade Granola--Recipe at: stephanie-spring.comRight as I got into soup, sweaters, and socks… it hits almost 80 degrees. It’s November and in our neck of the woods that is not exactly common. But for a girl who¬†dreams of 90 degree days, pools, and sunshine… this is the life. One day I crave a salad and the next I want to cuddle up next to a fire and eat soup. I needed to find a happy medium food that would settle all this moody weather… and let me tell you, I think I may have hit the jackpot. I am completely guilty of eating this almost all day long with no shame. My logic is if I have it¬†with milk for breakfast,¬†then with yogurt for lunch, and then graze on it by the handful all by itself an hour later, then it is acceptable. Wishful thinking? It’s addictive in the best way possible. The great this is…it’s a guilty pleasure you don’t have to feel guilty about.
