1 Dec

unnamed (93)

This is another leftover treat.

One cup cooked zucchini

3 eggs

2 slices of American cheese

One slice of flat bread

Heat a skillet with just a little butter

Heat the zucchini in the microwave till hot. Drain any liquid off.

Pour the whipped eggs into the hot pan and swirl the pan so the eggs cook evenly.

Add the cheese and zucchini.

Cook for another minute or to the doneness you like.

Place on the flatbread and roll up.

This was pretty good.

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.

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.

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.

Fried ham, toast  and melting butter.

Its a good day.

My oldest son was making asparagus omellets and they were delicious.

Two eggs , whipped well with a dash of milk, salt and pepper

One slice of American cheese

5  sliced asparagus

One whole asparagus

One slice of ham

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.

Thank you Andrew

Son #3 Recipes: Healthy Protein Breakfast

10 May

IMG_2916

For those who don’t know me I’m one of the sons in the fam that cooks the least. My speciality however? Eggs. And lots of them.

This morning I had a hankering for Mah’s Chimichurri sauce and luckily she gave me about ten ounces of it yesterday at the house.

I also noticed that she gave me four avocados that are close to being mushy so I have to average an avocado a meal before they go bad. I’m not complaining, this just happens every time I go home.

-Four fried egg whites in a little olive oil

-One Full Avocado… (if you don’t have a mini surplus cut up a couple slices or make half)

-Generously pour on the Chimichurri 

You can throw on some coarse black pepper and tabasco for extra heat.

It’s a great spicy breakfast but just be aware of what you’re eating. A lot of garlic in the sauce. Like, a lot. So keep your distance.

Also if you run your dishwasher at a regular rate like a normal person you can add in a yoke or two if you have a spatula. I didn’t have a clean one so I didn’t risk breaking a yoke. Plastic ladles aren’t good for flipping eggs by the way…

Steak and Eggs

18 May

Steak and eggs

My sons love this and once in a while I do indulge them.

One pound of thin sliced steak tips

One tablespoon butter

One tablespoon oil

One large sliced onion

1/2 diced hot pepper without the seeds

8 beaten eggs

Heat the butter and oil in a pan.

Add the onion and pepper.

Saute for two or three minutes

Stir to cook but keep the onions almost raw and crunchy.

Add the meat and cook till medium well.

Season with salt

Add eggs and scramble till cooked.

You can add cheese now if you like.

I decided to be a little healthy and add pea shoots.

The pea shoots took away the guilt of eating beef for breakfast.
