Recipe: 10 Minute Brunch for Lovers and Fighters

Lately I’ve been on a quick yet savory meal kick. I want a great meal, but don’t want to spend an hour making it, and yet another hour doing the dishes. Below is a great huevos rancheros inspired brunch option using one pan and ten minutes of your time. I prefer fried eggs, olive bread, and a pico de gallo style salsa, but you can use whatever egg, bread, and salsa options you like. Plus, the recipe can be easily adjusted to accommodate 1 to 18 guests!.


  • Eggs (1 egg per guest)
  • Bread (1 slice per guest)
  • Salsa (1 spoonful per guest)
  • Uncooked Spinach (quarter cup per guest)
  • Olive Oil
  • Lime Juice
  • Salt & Pepper

Directions are as follows:

  • Preheat your pan on medium heat
  • Add butter, margarine, or non-stick spray.
  • Add eggs to pan
  • Begin toasting bread
  • Flip eggs.
  • Next add spinach to each guest’s plate and season with fresh lime juice, olive oil, salt & pepper
  • Place 1 piece of toast on each guest’s plate and add 1 scoop of  salsa on top of each piece of toast
  • Remove egg from pan and place it on top of toast with salsa
Serve with a cup coffee or a glass fresh squeezed orange juice and enjoy.
As an FYI, this post title was inspired by a great jam by Mos Def entitled Bedstuy Parade and Funeral March
