Notes:

You can easily replace the blueberries in this recipe with pretty much any other fruit you want. I'd recommend other berries, bananas, or apples, but you do you.

You can also add ½ tsp ground ginger to the egg mixture if you want to add a little something extra. Play around with other common dessert spices too! This is a dessert masquerading as breakfast, after all.
