If you're a football fan, it's not surprising that your Super Bowl Sunday is an all-day affair, which means your festivities likely begin within hours of waking. If that's the case, your first meal of the day is likely on your mind-- and we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
That's right, friends, here's a nutritious and delicious recipe that gives you a reason to eat nachos for breakfast. It's such a simple idea, but one that will appeal to just about any group of fans.
The only thing you really need to make nachos a breakfast food is eggs, but in order to consider them a good-for-you dish, a nutritious "base" is needed. That's why Simply7's Kale Chips are an awesome pick. (I chose the Sea Salt variety, but Simply7 also makes Dill Pickle and Lemon & Olive Oil flavors.) They're a tasty ridged chip (perfect for nachos), and they're designed to pack the fresh flavor and great benefits of kale.
And, of course, we all know kale is a wonderful way to boost the nutrients in your diet. Simply7's Kale Chips have nearly 80% of your daily Vitamin K, so they're definitely a high-quality snack. (The brand also makes Quinoa, Lentil, and Hummus Chips.)
Additionally, all of Simply7's products adhere to seven core standards that the company stands behind. Hence, the Simple7 name: Clean ingredients (nothing genetically modified), no added preservatives, 0 grams trans fats, no artificial colors or flavors, gluten-free, simple ingredients, and simply delicious. With all of these standards in place, you can feel good about eating these chips!
Ok, it's breakfast nacho time!
- 1 bag Simply7 Sea Salt Kale Chips
- 2 eggs + 2 egg whites
- 3 tbsp milk
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup fresh salsa
- 4-6 grape tomatoes
- 1 bunch of scallions
- salt + pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Whisk together eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Scramble eggs in a fry pan on the stove top.
Prepare your favorite nacho ingredients: Slice grape tomatoes and scallions. Other tasty (and healthy!) topping ideas: Black beans, green bell pepper, jalapenos, sour cream, avocado, crumbled feta, sliced black olives, and chunked chicken breast. Anything goes!
Spread Simply7 Sea Salt Kale Chips in a baking dish and then top them with scrambled eggs, sliced tomatoes, salsa, and shredded cheese.
Bake nachos for about 8-10 minutes or until cheese is fully melted.
Remove pan from oven, garnish with scallions, and serve immediately!
