Hi Friends!

Today we’re talking about one of my all-time favorite foods- eggs! If you follow me on any form of social media, you’re probably well aware that I eat eggs pretty much every single day. They’re healthy, versatile and I just never seem to get sick of them!


So the first recipe I cooked up for you guys are these Baked Scotch Eggs.

Eggs are one of my go-to breakfasts and snacks for Squish. He’s a fan of them pretty much any way I cook them but I’m always looking for new ideas. He’s also a growing boy. And he eats a lot. It actually truly baffles me how much he can eat for such a little person. But I’m doing my best to feed him real, well-balanced meals and snacks. Lately, I’ve been focusing a lot on breakfast and making sure to give him a protein-packed plate to kick off the day.

This recipe definitely fits the bill and it’s fairly simple to make.

Here’s how you do it:
