#FoodieFriday: Turkey Breakfast Skillet

Happy Friday All!

I am a HUGE fan of a breakfast eatery called Snooze. One of my favorite dishes there is the Snooze Spud Deluxe. It’s basically harsh browns and eggs plus two additional add-ons you choose. Needless to say, it’s delicious! It light of this, I decided to make my own Spud Deluxe out of egg whites, left over turkey breast, and shredded potatoes! I ended up being making more of an egg scramble with potatoes because I was out of whole eggs, but it made the perfect lunch recipe! Check it out below:

What You Need:

With four days until Christmas, I wanted to share one of my favorite Christmas cookie recipes! It’s a little messy, but the recipe is super easy to follow and pretty low maintenance.

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Cup of Butter (warmed)

2 Cups of Flour

1 Cup Powdered Sugar (for coating the cookies)

Roll a tablespoon of dough into the shape of a ball. Cook for 13-15 minutes. Basically, you just want the bottom to be brown!

Pull cookies out of oven, and let them cool for a minute. Using a metal spatula, place four or five cookies in powdered sugar. Toss the cookie until coated completely, and then place on wire rack.
