Man, October has been an insanely busy month for me! So much excitement and catching up with old friends. Unfortunately it hasn't given me much time to cook, let alone blog. But luckily it has given me lots of time to come up with new ideas for dishes you'll love! And I finally have the time to share with you once more.
Like this morning - not only did I use leftovers from dinner yesterday (which I love to do) but it created an amazing fall morning meal. It's easy enough to do on a weekday before work or school and indulgent enough to want on the weekend.
This time of year raw pumpkin seeds are practically a staple in my kitchen (look forward to them being featured in many of my upcoming posts!). I eat them with almost everything and certainly don't mind the extra dose of iron they offer up.
Depending on how long you have been reading my blog, I am sure you have realized eggs are absolutely a staple of mine year round (if you are new to thealiconklin take a look around - you'll find lots of delicious egg recipes and even more egg photos on my Instagram feed!). Given my love for both, the combination of egg and pumpkin seed was inevitable!
Each of these ingredients are so incredibly flavorful on their own and don't need much spicing up other than a pinch of salt. The egg is savory, the butternut squash sweet, the pumpkin seeds nutty...the exact combination you would want for a fall breakfast. Perfect.
