Back-to-school. Don’t those words conjure up all sorts of images?! I’m reluctant to believe summer could be ending already—but I’m also looking forward to the shift in seasons. Sam is excited about seeing school mates and being in first grade, so that’s sweet. I have to admit I’m eager to get in a new routine myself. Since I stopped doing outside agency work this summer I’ve been caught up in a happy whirlwind of visiting with family and friends.  Now that summer is waning, I will be re-arranging my schedule. Exciting!

Omlet in a Mug

One of the things I am determined to do is make the everyday events in our life as streamlined as possible. One of the first events of the day is breakfast. It must be quick and it must be good. We are not generally big breakfast eaters at our house—at least not early in the morning! But I know how important it is to be fueled for the day, especially for energetic little boys to stay energetic. That means breakfast has to be really tasty or no one will want to make time for it. Burnbrae Shelled Eggs make it easy to get breakfast together in about five minutes and we all like this recipe—in fact, I am not one for hyperbole, but I could eat this every day for a year! It’s that good. Very light and fluffy. This is based on a recipe from Burnbrae Farms.

Omelet in a Mug

  • Author:


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • pinch of basil


  1. Switch up the taste by adding extra vegees or crumbled bacon, spicy Pepper Jack cheese, and diced tomatoes. Fill a pita pocket with the mixture and you’re out the door! It’s a great start to the day because eggs are a high quality source of protein and many vitamins and minerals, plus they’re low in saturated fat. The choline in eggs supports brain development and function—a real boon to anyone, but especially growing kids that are being sent off to school. One egg provides half of the daily choline recommended. Eggs also provide carotenoids, which are good for healthy eyes.
  2. You can also buy convenient Burnbrae Snack Pack Hard Boiled Eggs in the deli departments at the grocery. They’re a quick idea for lunchboxes and a healthy snack after school, especially before and after sport practice.
