Tip

Psst...this recipe is excellent with or without the spice blend. Add a generous pinch of salt to both the eggs and the potatoes if you omit the packaged seasoning. 

Small changes can make a big difference

You guys. How is it the end of January right now? Every time I think I’ve gotten used to time speeding up and whisking us into the future, I swear it accelerates again. Dude. Lady. Whoever you are with your hand on the dial. Knock it off, please. Thank you.

I’ve spoken with a few friends and colleagues about this fleeting January, and how we’ve all gotten a heck of a lot done, but not nearly as much as we’d hoped. I don’t know why we do this to ourselves, quietly setting unreasonable expectations that we’re perpetually just shy of meeting. I’m proud to say I’ve been consciously trying to show myself as much compassion as I show others so far this year, and it’s going pretty well. And yet. It’s not a perfect system.

The good news is that even small changes in attitude and behavior can make a big difference in how we feel about these daily challenges. Better yet, those changes can start at breakfast.

Yay for breakfast

Umami central

McCormick Good Morning breakfast seasoning is a breakthrough line of products to help you do just that. You literally just sprinkle it right onto your already fabulous meal, and it amps up the flavor in all the right ways. McCormick makes sweet and savory breakfast seasonings, and of course I am all about the savory ones, because hi, have we met? I opted to use the Bell Pepper Salsa seasoning in this recipe, but you could substitute Garden Herb and be equally happy. They’re both seriously tasty and well-suited to these Greek Scrambled Eggs and Savory Roasted Potatoes.

The packaging says “sprinkle on cooked eggs OR hash browns,” so of course I sprinkled it on both eggs AND potatoes. I am not sorry and I am not looking back.

Breakfast, brunch, or dinner

This recipe makes a great family breakfast, but I also kinda can’t shake the idea of doubling it for brunch with friends, or sneaking it in once in a while as breakfast for dinner. Just putting that out there.
