We’re heading into our second week of school here, and we’re still getting into the swing of this early morning rush thing.  I’m typically a morning person…but my son?  Not so much.

He’s also never had much interested in eating, especially breakfast.  Unless breakfast is pizza, that is. 🙂

The perfect way to start the morning – flatbread pizza for breakfast! Serve with fresh fruit for a well-rounded breakfast. #recipe #breakfast #egg

Hey, you’re not going to find me turning down pizza for breakfast, either.

We’ve been eating eggs for breakfast for the last week, and I have to admit, I’m finding that I stay fuller longer in the mornings than I did when I ate just my standard cereal.  I also tend to get shaky if I don’t have enough protein, so eggs for breakfast gives me a great start on the day.

And as a mom, I’m constantly focused on my son’s food intake – especially when it seems like he can exist on not much more than a few bites of fruit or cereal as we’re heading out the door.  While that might be enough to get him by for the first hour or so of the day, it’s certainly not enough to last until lunch time.

According to a recent survey conducted by the American Egg Board, 82% of parents agree that eggs are a more nutritious breakfast than cereal.  Eggs are all natural and filled with essential vitamins, minerals and six grams of high quality protein.  With a breakfast like that, I can feel good about sending my kiddo off for a full day of learning.

For this pizza, I used one flatbread (about 6-inches in diameter, although mine was what I refer to as “rustically shaped”), one egg, a little milk, precooked turkey sausage, some Italian spices, and cheese.

All stuff Doodle will gobble up, and a meal that I can make in the microwave while he’s getting dressed for school. It’s a win-win.

Plus, this breakfast costs only $1.99 per serving.  That’s less than what I’d spend on purchasing a school breakfast, and one I can feel good about feeding my kiddo.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
