OOOO-WE. Salmon Benedict Arugula Breakfast Salad over here just slaying breakfast.
First of all, If you have never had “Everything, but the bagel” seasoning from Trader Joe’s, you need to get on that. STAT. That is an order. If you think I’m being bossy, just know this; a little sprinkle of this gold transforms pretty much anything. Eggs, sweet potatoes, veggies, chicken- The list goes on and on. And it did WONDERS for this salmon benedict arugula breakfast salad. And may or may not really spice things up while doing Whole30.
There is no second of all, I just needed some dramatics
I roasted some fennel and crimini mushrooms to add into this salmon benedict arugula breakfast salad and it turned out fabulous! Now, I know fennel often turns people away when it brought up because people don’t know what to do it. As one of fennel’s biggest supporters, I’m here to say, it’s not so scary. You can make so many great fennel recipes with it. I love fennel with risotto, on pizza, in salads. (ie: this salmon benedict arugula breakfast salad)
Anywho, I hope you are sold on fennel recipes now- go try them out.
Now, the next subject
Soft. Boiled. Eggs. You guys, I got the BEST kitchen appliance for Christmas. It cooks eggs, anyway you want them. Hard-boiled, soft-boiled, omelettes, and sunny-side up. This dream machine is named the Dash- Rapid Egg cooker. I highly recommend grabbing one of those babies, it will make your life an over-easy egg. Ha! You know I just couldn’t have resisted.
Okay, okay I feel like I have said enough.
Your next task? Whipping up this salmon benedict arugula breakfast salad. It will be all the rage at your next brunch, especially if you know… you have Whole30 friends. Bye Friends!
