Two posts in one weekend?! I’ve surely gone off the blogging deep end.
And all in the name of
love BEEF. If you’ve got beef with that, just relax. Don’t have a cow now.
Yes, because one burger-infused blog post wasn’t enough for this converted vegetarian in one weekend. When life hands you free beef, make burgers of uncharted territories.
As in breakfast burgers. Burger wrapped egg burgers. Say whaaaaa?!
If you’ve never heard of a scotch egg before, it’s a popular English breakfast dish composed of a hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage, breaded, and fried. Sounds legit.
So I decided to American-ize it, and burger-ize it!
And whoever says you can’t have a burger for breakfast is someone that doesn’t deserve to be in your life. Along with those people who question your peanut butter eating decisions..
Plus, eating 20-30 grams of high-quality protein, like lean beef or eggs can help you lose and/or maintain a healthy weight, and support a healthy metabolism. Not to mention being able to eat a burger for breakfast.
Some of the more remarkable benefits of eating protein throughout the day include feeling satisfied after a protein-packed meal, which helps reduce mindless eating as well as helps build muscle and reduce body fat. You can get more information about the research/benefits of lean beef protein right here.
I can guarantee you this protein-filled breakfast will get you much further than any bowl of cereal or slice of toast could ever dream of.
