Dietitian's Tip: It’s easy to work vegetables into your breakfast meal when you combine them with eggs. This meal can work for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

*Kids Cook: I find teaching kids how to cook breakfast is a great introduction to cooking.

  2. (ingredients are in bold)

  3. Step One
  4. In large rimmed baking dish spread out 3 cups of Spaghetti Squash with Herb Butter and Parmesan set aside.

Try making this in the toaster oven. Once the egg white is firm it’s ready.
