Scrambled Eggs over Rye with Fresh Chives

Toast two pieces of rye bread. 
Scramble two eggs and scoop over the bread
Finely chop two to three chive stems and a chive flower (be sure to cut away from the reproductive part of the flower). Sprinkle on top. 

I used farm fresh eggs from Shag Valley Farm and chives from my herb garden. The rye bread is non-GMO. 

I love starting the day with fresh eggs. Farm fresh eggs, organic, locally sourced, cage-free, whatever you want to call them. There are so many great benefits to buying these type of eggs over the regular store bought ones. It all starts with what they eat. The quality of the chicken egg is directly related to what they eat. If they eat low-quality food without many nutrients, the eggs are going to reflect that. One benefit of farm fresh eggs from a local chicken farm is that their chickens are going to be able to get high-quality feed and are able to eat fresh grass, which is high in omega-3 fatty acids. The eggs will reflect that and be better taste, better nutritional value, and better overall quality. The food you make from farm fresh eggs is delicious and you’ll wonder why you ever bought commercially raised eggs.  I’m not saying that store-bought eggs aren’t an option, but the taste of local organic eggs is just so much better. Farm fresh eggs have more vitamin A and E. They also have extra omega-3s which is great for heart and brain health. You’ll also be helping your local farm stay in business. Farm fresh eggs can often time be the cheaper option because these local farms are trying to stay ahead of the competition. Plus it helps you develop a great relationship with the farmers and local people as well. And who doesn’t love mixing it up with the locals?

Breakfast Beef and Egg Hash⁣

Breakfast Beef and Egg Hash⁣

Beef for breakfast? Why not? This hearty and filling dish makes a great breakfast or lunch and uses ingredients you are likely to have in your pantry and freezer. ⁣

1 lb ground beef⁣
6 eggs⁣
16 oz tomato sauce⁣
1 yellow onion, finely diced ⁣
6 small or 3 large potatoes, yukon gold or red, diced into 1/4 inch cubes⁣
3/4 cup grated cheese (i used sharp cheddar)⁣
ghee ⁣
salt and pepper⁣

Add 1 tbsp ghee to pan on medium heat. When ghee is hot, add onion and saute for 3 minutes. Add ground beef. Crumble the beef and stir. Keep stirring and breaking up the beef until it is fully cooked through about 10 minutes. Add potatoes and stir. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add tomato sauce and mix. Add enough water to almost cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cover. Cook until potatoes are soft, about 15 minutes. Open and boil off some of the liquid if there is too much. When tomato sauce is nice and thick, crack 6 eggs on top of the hash. Sprinkle hash with the cheese, make sure it is simmering, and cover. Check every minute, and turn off when eggs have just set and turned white on top. This will make for a delicious runny egg yolk. Serve and enjoy!⁣
