    My collection of Egg Breakfast Ideas includes over 30 varied ways to cook eggs from all around the world.


    • 4 eggs
    • 8oz mushrooms
    • 4 cups fresh spinach
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • ½ tsp dried thyme
    • ½ tsp red chili flakes
    • 1 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1.5 Tbsp butter, divided
    • Salt and pepper to taste


    1. Heat olive oil and 1 Tbsp butter in 8" skillet over medium high heat.
    2. Slice mushrooms and add to skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes then add chopped garlic, thyme, and red chili flakes, along with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until soft and all juices from mushrooms have evaporated.
