          Directions

          For the caramelized onions: Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and onions, separating them, and sprinkle with the salt. Saute for 10 minutes, then turn down the heat to medium-low and cook until the onions are deep amber in color, another 35 to 40 minutes.

          Meanwhile, for the fig jam: Combine 1/4 cup water, the figs, sugar and lemon zest in a saucepan and simmer over low heat until thick, 45 to 60 minutes.

          For the eggs: Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil and use a paper towel to grease the pan and remove the excess oil. Crack 2 egg whites into a bowl and beat with a whisk. Pour the whites into the skillet and add 1/4 teaspoon piment d'espelette and some black pepper. Cook until opaque, 1 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook for another minute. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining eggs to make 3 more omelets.

          For the salad: Combine the olive oil, vinegar and maple syrup in a small jar with a tight-fitting lid. Seal the jar and shake vigorously to blend. Toss the arugula and blueberries with the dressing.

          Toast the bread. Spread 1 tablespoon jam on each of 4 slices of toast and add 1 tablespoon caramelized onions. Top with the egg whites and cover with the remaining slices of toast. Serve with the salad.

            This is my new favorite breakfast. If you dont feel up to making the fig jam, jarred fig preserves work too. Fuels you up right for the day ahead.
