My new favorite breakfast and Biggest Loser recap


I have a new favorite breakfast that I’ve made the last few mornings that I could eat pretty much every day and not get tired of it. What is it?

It’s 3 small potatoes, with the skin on, 1 leftover Chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s, sliced, sliced yellow pepper, a handful of edamame and 1 fried egg. Oh Ma Ga, it’s a huge portion and it keeps me full all morning and it tastes so good. The thing that I think makes it taste so good, is I sprinkle some of my Penzey Spices Sausage seasoning over everything!

I know it sounds weird to put the edamame in there, but I was cutting up veggies for salad club at my office and threw some in last minute.

I sliced the potatoes really thin, and placed them in a small skillet. Add about 2 tablespoons of water and cover for about 7 minutes, or until the potatoes start to get tender. Then I added the chicken sausauge, the pepper and edamame and sprayed it with Pam Cooking spray so it wouldn’t stick. After that was cooked (about another 5 minutes), then remove all that from the pan. Wipe the pan clean, cook the egg and chop up to add to the hash. I’ve had time to make this before work AND get 3 kids to school, so it’s something quick enough even when you have a lot going on.

Which brings me to my favorite day of the week at work – SALAD CLUB! It’s every Tuesday and the choices get better and better each week!

I had spinach, carrots, cucumber, edamame, apples, grapes, black beans, corn, a few croutons, a little bit of bacon bits, and something I haven’t had in a long time, but was great – Lite Catalina Dressing. I remember eating that as a kid and I haven’t had that kind of dressing in years, but it was great.

Spoiler alert! Make-over week on Biggest Loser!!! I was kind of dissapointed that they didn’t show them more getting ready and trying on clothes. There was a little glimpse of them here and there at the salon, but other than that, they just showed up all done up.

Hannah was the first to arrive. I was not a huge fan of the color of her hair and the dress kind of looked like it was a mermaid. BUT, her body looks great, she’s lost 100 pounds in 17 weeks, so that is fantastic. Her sister Olivia looked amazing. They cut her hair short, which was so cute and her dress was fantastic. She got to see her husband and he was also super chunky when she left for the ranch and he’s lost a ton of weight at home and looked great too. Irene. I love Irene, I kind of hope she wins the whole thing. They put her in a really pretty pink dress with sparkly silver shoes. She got to see her Mom. I had forgotten that her Mom was her partner in the show since she left so long ago, but she’s been able to lose weight at home. In fact, I thought they looked more like sisters than mother and daughter! Then men got to wear fancy tuxes and they both looked great too.

The bonus was that at the end of the show, NO ONE got sent home, so everyone gets to stay for another week, which of course everyone was excited about.

So, we are getting down to the wire…who do you want to win?

Have a wonderful day everyone! 🙂


  1. I totally predicted that no one would go home as Rulon the Idiot left last week. I don’t like Hannah’s hair either, style or color, she still looks awesome though! Totally want Irene to win! I think it might be Jay though. Who knows.

    I could totally eat that meal for breakfast every day too!

  2. copied and pasted! I LOVE this idea and it seems like it would reheat well too. Super heart and it sounds like a lot of flavor – i’ll be replicating – thanks!

    Mmm that breakfast looks killer good! I’m so much more a savory breakfast person, so that’s right up my alley. And I love edamame!! So much protein in there!

    What time should I come over for breakfast tomorrow? 🙂

  5. Watched Biggest Loser with my wife… You were polite. Hannah looked AWFUL… What was with those bangs. my wife was not pleased, and I had to hear about it for the rest of the show. I think she knew it too, as during the rest of the show, she pinned her bangs back. She deserved so much better.

    Actually, that was Jackie screaming that. personally, I thought the whole fantasy idea was a bit of a rip off for the contestants. I just can not imagine dropping 100 plus pounds, having a body they are not used to dressing and then being “shown” how to doll up for a once a decade evening. Would have preferred the producers showed dressing pudgy bodies well for special occasions, but not that special.

    love the tater idea!

  6. Sounds like a breakfast I could eat every day, too!!!
