Tamago Kake Gohan

This morning I prepared a simple recipe that I found online called Tamago Kake Gohan or Japanese-Style Rice With Egg. I made garlic-ginger sockeye salmon to go with it for a more complete breakfast. I have a Zojirushi rice cooker so I felt like this dish was mostly authentic!

The sesame seeds and soy sauce added a nice flavor to the egg and rice. I microwaved the sesame seeds until they started popping (10-12 seconds) which really brought out their flavor.

Homemade McGriddle

A perfect combo of sweet and... A perfect combo of sweet and savory flavors.
I must admit my love for American fast food. Wendy's, Five Guy's, Culver's, Burger King, and McDonald's all have some tasty food options. One of my guilty pleasures is a sausage, egg and cheese McGriddle from McDonald's. The sandwich isn't a totally awful nutrition or calorie bomb and it tastes so good I would get one when I wanted. However, I was spending too much money on eating out and I had all the ingredients to make one at home. So, I gave it a shot! The result is so good I'm not sure I will be able to justify going out for a McDonald's McGriddle anytime soon. My nutritional profile is much better and I can take creative liberty to season each ingredient to taste.

"Sausage" patty

3 oz (85 g) lean ground turkey
Salt and pepper to taste

Pancake buns

39 g Kodiak Cake pancake mix (3/4 one serving)
1 tsp (4 g) cinnamon
.5 tsp (2 g) vanilla extract
1/3 cup almond-cashew milk
2 g butter – used to prevent sticking to my metal ring mold
8 g maple sugar – used to make maple crystals

Mix dry and wet ingredients separately before combining. To get the little pockets of maple syrup like a McDonald's McGriddle, take maple sugar and add a few drops of water to help you form tiny lumps of sugar. I pushed maple sugar chunks into the pancake batter after I poured it on my skillet. If you don't have maple sugar then you can pour maple syrup over the finished pancakes/sandwich or set it to the side for dipping.


1 large egg, beaten to mix yolk and whites
1 g butter – used to prevent sticking to my metal ring mold
Salt and pepper to taste


1 Laughing Cow cheese wedge

Egg and Cheese Muffin

A lite and fluffy breakfast A lite and fluffy breakfast
This egg and cheese muffin is flexible, fluffy, and lightly filling. It can be prepared warm or cold. When time is short the ingredients are easy to grab from the fridge and prep at work. This snack-size meal is also easy to scale: add another egg and cheese wedge with fruit on the side for a complete breakfast.

Preparation is simple: toast an english muffin while you mash one boiled egg and one wedge of Laughing Cow cheese together with a fork. Season with salt and pepper or your preferred blend of spices and top the toasted muffin halves. I bet this would taste amazing with chives mixed in!
