Looking for an easy breakfast to eat before (or during!) your morning Zoom meeting? I put this simple recipe together because I wanted something quick but protein-packed. To make it flavorful with minimal prep, I’ve used a blend of fresh herbs; you can mix up your own favorites. If you want something heartier, you can always add a tablespoon of cooked and crumbled breakfast meat, chopped spinach or broccoli, or sautéed onions or bell pepper. You can substitute a milder cheese as well if you prefer, though I think sharp Cheddar gives the eggs a nice morning wake-up punch. Enjoy!
