Onions and Eggs

27 Oct

unnamed (19)

My Mom used to make this all the time when I was young.

She would cook the eggs and put it all in a fresh loaf of Italian bread.

Instead of napkins she would give us a cloth dish towel because we had to wipe our mouths so much.

3 tablespoons olive oil, butter or canola oil

3 jumbo eggs

1/2 diced large onion

2 slices American cheese

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

Heat a non stick pan with the oil.

Add the onions and cook till they are soft but not brown

Season with salt and pepper

Beat the eggs and add it to the pan and swirl around, scrapping the edges to make a fluffy egg.

Cook to the consistency you like.

I like my eggs fully cooked.

Slide them onto a microwave dish and place two slices of American cheese on top.

Microwave for 20 seconds to melt the cheese.

I use ketchup and Franks hot sauce on the side but this is so good plain.

I am watching my carb intake so I did not have bread.  I will keep this in mind for my cheat day.

It is not the prettiest meal but it is so very delicious.

Franks Fabulous Fried Egg Sandwich

27 Sep

unnamed (65)unnamed (66)

Since I was a young girl the bottle of Franks Red Hot sauce has been on our table.

My family used it on everything and I mean everything.

One of my favorite meals is eggs with Franks.

My Dads eggs looked totally red with all the sauce he added.

Two eggs fried in oil or butter

I like my eggs turned over.

Add as  much Franks as you like

One or two  slices of soft bread

One slice of cheese

Thats it!

The best sandwich ever for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

 

Betty Crocker Blue Raspberry cupcakes

10 Aug

unnamed-58.jpg

I had a Betty Crocker blue raspberry cake mix that I thought my grandchildren would like because it was blue. But, I couldn’t use it because it contained milk.

So I had to make it into an adult snack.

Make the mix according to the box directions except DO NOT USE THE WATER.

Instead I used a container of berry yogurt that was almost expired.

Mix 2 tablespoons of flour with 2 cups of mixed berries.

I used a lot of blueberries, some blackberries and just a few raspberries.

After the batter is mixed fold in the berries.

Line a jumbo muffin pan with oversize paper liners and put two full tablespoon into each cup.

Do not use more than that .

If you want to make 12 cakes use a little less in each cup.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Start checking after 28 minutes.

My first batch took 33 minutes and my second batch took 30 minutes.

Cool.

I just put more berries on the top instead of frosting.

This is a pretty good portioned snack instead of a big cake.

3 May

It is Spring and I am going to turn into a Vidalia onion.

I LOVE them and this is their season.

Slice up half a vidalia onion and sauté them in butter

Add a little salt and stir together.

Crack two eggs and cook the way you like them.

I put everything on a soft piece of potato bread.

It was wonderful.

Breakfast Udon Noodles

10 Mar

unnamed (27)

It was one of those cold winter mornings when all I wanted was something warm.

Since I have become my Mom, I love soup.

I have become a fan of the packaged Udon noodles that you can buy in the produce department of any grocery store.

One package of udon noodles

3 cups chicken stock

Three baby bok choy cut into one inch pieces

One diced scallion

One 1/2 inch slice of ginger

One cup cooked chopped broccoli

Shredded carrots are optional

One fried egg

Boil the broth with the ginger

Add the noodles

Cook till they are warm and soft

Add the bok choy, broccoli and scallions

Cook till everything is nice and warm

Put the noodles in a bowl with the vegetables

Add enough broth to come half  way up the noodles

Top with the egg

Add hot sauce

Pour yourself a cup of leftover broth instead of tea

I love this and put any leftover vegetables into it.

Corn Beef Hash

18 Jul

I made a corn beef even though it wasn’t St. Patricks Day.

I wanted to make sandwiches and hash.

My kids were crazy with me because it is such a fatty meat.

By the time I finished cooking it , it wasn’t fatty.

I put the corn beef in a big pot of water, brought it to a boil and skimmed all the stuff that comes to the top.. Drained the water out and added new water and did the same but this time I took it down to a simmer , covered it and let it simmer all day.

You know when it is cooked when it is fork tender.

Take out of the water and cut off all the remaining fat.

Slice the meat into thin slices and start making sandwiches with good mustard, coleslaw, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing and of corse pickles.

Pick whatever you like.

A little swiss cheese is always a winner.

Take the leftover meat and cut into small pieces of about 6  cups. Set aside

Sauté one large diced onion in two tablespoons of oil till soft

Add one diced jalapeño pepper

Add last nights leftover french fries cut into small pieces about  4 cups

Heat everything together and then add the corn beef

Press it down in the skillet because you want to get a crust on both sides so don’t flip or stir fry this. This only takes about 5 minutes on a medium high heat.

You want a nice crusty brown hash

Season with salt and pepper at this point because the corn beef and fries could be salty enough.

Serve with a fried egg  and cheese on top.

5  sliced asparagus

Roll the ham around  the one whole asparagus

Heat one teaspoon of butter in a non stick pan

Place the cut asparagus plus the rolled asparagus and cook till done  about 3 to 4 minutes.

Take out of the pan

Pour the eggs in the pan and cook till set.

Add the chopped asparagus,  cheese and fold over

Top with the whole asparagus

This was so delicious.
