Tired Of Boring Egg Recipes For Breakfast? Here’s a Good One – and It Includes Wine

Scrambled. Boiled. Poached. Coddled. Over easy. Hard boiled. On avocado toast. Between bacon and cheese. Shakshuka.

Did I miss any? Oh yes, my latest favorite– with red wine.

No, that’s not a typo. And, no I’m not suggesting sipping on a glass of pinot with your toast at 8am (although I certainly wouldn’t stop you!).

Cue these over easy eggs with mushrooms cooked in a red wine butter sauce with sautéed spinach. There’s garlic in here, sage, and a hint of lemon — it’s packed with flavor. And, luckily all these ingredients are all pantry friendly.
