5 Ways to Eat Eggs for Dinner

Happy Sunday, everyone!

While I’m in the middle of my move, food is an issue since I don’t want to have a lot of food in the fridge to transfer. Whether it’s now while I’m moving, or instances when I’m lazy or rushing, eggs are usually my go-to for a quick dinner.

They’re packed with protein, super easy, and go great with so many things. With that being said, I thought I would share some of my favorite egg recipes!

    Yes to the breakfast tacos all the way!!! Breakfast for dinner is the best meal ever. Ever since I was a kid I think that’s my favorite meal and times it by two when I get it for dinner. Lol. Excellent ideas. I need to spice up my eggs a bit more.
