Spray a skillet with nonstick cooking oil.

Once eggs are done add spinach and 3/4 cup cheese to one side, flip up other side.
Cook, until cheese is melted, flipping occasionally top with remaining cheese, and salsa.
4. Stove Top Apples- This is one of my favorite breakfast dishes. It pairs nicely with toast, pancakes or oatmeal.

Wash, peel and core apple’s.
Melt butter, add apples cover and cook on a med heat for about 10 min.

Stir and cover for another 5 min, stirring halfway.
Cook to desired consistency. I usually like mine to be more tender so I cook a little longer.
5. Sausage Balls- these are so delicious and can be prepped the night before if need be. I’m a huge Paula Dean fan in the kitchen so I follow her recipe, which you can find here
