Crispy Egg and Cheese Breakfast Flatbread (Dining Hall)

F2

Brunch is definitely my favorite meal of the day, mostly because it involves having some type of comfort food! I had a little extra time to myself this past weekend since I don’t have any tests coming up, so I made a warm toasted flatbread in my dining hall. I chose to use only eggs, tomatoes and provolone cheese, but you can really choose any type of vegetable and cheese to go along with the bread–simply toast the entire flatbread and the melted cheese will satisfy your craving!

It would be a shame to miss out on all the important nutrients simply because of its strong taste; to reduce the after-taste of grapefruit juice, I added a bit of honey and some water to dilute it.

Good Morning Blueberry-Pineapple Toast

Sometimes the best breakfasts are the ones that are light on your stomach and don’t leave you hanging in a food coma. One day I was rushing to class (*correction- everyday I’m running late to class) and I was trying to come up with a feasible and portable breakfast snack that gives me energy- not one that leaves me tired after I’ve finished eating. I craved something more than just a slice of plain bread covered in butter.
