Bargain Breakfast

Bargain avocado toast.

We get it — you’re tired of eating the same granola bar for breakfast every day.

Fret not Mustangs, the Gazette is back with two recipes to improve your mornings and will actually make you excited to get out of bed.

Scrambled eggs have long been a student staple but, let’s face it, they get boring quickly. So, instead of eating the same eggs with salt and pepper, try out a version that’s cheesy, elevated and easy, or check out a brunch favourite — avocado toast — on a budget.

Ingredients

2 eggs

2 tablespoons shredded Monterey Jack cheese

2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon milk

Chives, for garnish

Salt and pepper to taste
