Happy Monday! I hope you had a rejuvenating weekend and feel ready to face the week! We had some crazy weather come through on Saturday, knocking out our power not once, but twice and the second time it was out all night until the early afternoon Sunday. The good news is that Pat made us a fire and I lit candles making for a quiet and cozy night. The bad news? The power surge did something to our fridge, where it now no longer works. And you know I just went grocery shopping so it was of course packed full.

Luckily, we have another fridge in the basement, but for then next who-knows-how-long (until I can find a fridge I like) I’ll be running up and down a flight of stairs while cooking. Basically a food blogger’s (or anyone’s really) nightmare. The silver lining is that the fridge downstairs was just thoroughly cleaned out and it was ready for the incoming load of groceries. #thisismylife

Before the whole power outage, I made my go-to, all time, most favorite breakfast. Ever. I make this at least 3 times a week and it still hasn’t gotten old. I keep everything on hand; even prepped minced onion and sliced mushrooms so I can make this wholesome breakfast in minutes. The flavors are simple yet work so deliciously well together. I prefer use spicy veggie breakfast sausage in this scramble because for one, they’re already cooked and only need to be warmed up. And secondly, I like their flavor better than traditional breakfast sausage and they aren’t as greasy.

To recap, this is what you’ll need: 2 teaspoons light olive oil, 1 tablespoon diced onion (red, yellow or white), 1 cup sliced mushrooms, salt and pepper, 1 cup or large handful baby spinach, 2 large eggs, 1 cooked sausage patty (I prefer spicy veggie sausages) and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Add in 1 tablespoon (go ahead and eyeball it) of diced onion, a cup of sliced mushrooms and a pinch of kosher salt. As for the type of mushrooms, I use cremini but any mushrooms will work just fine.

Meanwhile crack two eggs into a bowl and add a pinch of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Whisk until light and fluffy, then set aside.

Once the onions are soft and the edges of the mushrooms are golden brown, add in 1 cup or a large handful of baby spinach. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
