Eggs are nutrient powershouses, economical, and quick to prepare, which makes them an excellent option to turn to for any meal of the day. 

Eggs are such a great option to serve for all meals of the day because they help build muscle strength, and are recommended as part of a heart-healthy diet. They are a great way to start the day, and I love having these rolls on hand for my kids to have before they head off to school.

This savory breakfast not only tastes amazing, but it’s great for meal prep OR a fancy brunch!
