Breakfast for dinner_Berniedette of Petite And TonedPetite Version of This Post

A few times a week, I actually have breakfast for dinner! This basically means eggs, some avo, and protein.

My fave? Ground turkey with homemade taco seasoning mix!


Full Post

Breakfast for dinner is one of my go-to’s because it is fast, filling, and easy to whip up after a long day. I typically have eggs, avocado, perhaps some salsa, and a side of protein. Sometimes, I eat this with a can of tuna and slivered almonds. Other times, I get a treat with ground turkey flavored in taco seasoning, which is homemade and less salty than store bought.

I got this spice mix recipe from my friend Lani, who was perhaps one of my first mentors when it came down to nutrition and eating right.

Breakfast for Dinner with Homemade Taco Seasoning
Author: 
Recipe type: Spice Mix
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 2-4
 
A quick and healthy taco seasoning you can make at home!
Ingredients
  • 1 lb ground turkey/ground meat
  • ¼ teaspoon dried cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dry yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle pepper spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder (1 clove minced)
Instructions
  1. Prepare spice mix above
  2. Mix with 1 lb of meat, cook, and serve

I just stir up the spice mix in the ground turkey, saute fry to your liking, and serve! I eat leftovers for dinner over the course of a few days, which prevents me from being a hungry monster after work!

Tip: I sometimes create a few batches of this spice mix for future use! I’ll store them in little spice jars for future use. Saves me a few minutes in terms of prep and in terms of time it would take to wash my measuring spoons and mixing bowl!)

Bon appetit!
