Scrambled eggs are one of my favorite meals to eat any time of the day. Next month I’ll be sharing Logan’s and my go-to scrambled eggs recipe, but in the meantime, I wanted to share this quick eggs-for-one recipe that I made this morning.

Normally Logan and I are together on Saturday mornings, but I was solo today. Because I do intermittent fasting, I got in a tough workout before I had anything to eat. After my workout, I made this hearty breakfast.

If you want to scale it down, reduce the amount of sausage to half.


1/4 red bell pepper

1/4 green bell pepper

1/4 medium onion

1 sausage (I used Trader Joe’s sun-dried tomato chicken sausage)

2 eggs

salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1-2 tablespoons half and half (or whatever milk you’d like)

1 tablespoon pesto (I used Trader Joe’s kale and cashew pesto in this recipe; homemade spinach and almond pesto recipe coming soon)

1/4 cup cheese (I used fontina but virtually any would work: goat, cheddar, mozzarella)

1/4 avocado

SERVES 1 (large portion)


Dice bell peppers and onions. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot (15-30 seconds), add bell peppers and onions.

While veggies are cooking, crack eggs into a bowl. Add a splash of half and half and whisk. Add salt and pepper to taste and whisk again.
