Huevos de Christine
I'm back! Sorry for the lack of posts these past couple of weeks. As you all know from experience, life sometimes gets in the way of important things like blogging and sleeping. But worry not, I am back to share a quick recipe with you all! I've missed you. This recipe isn't so much a "how-to" as it is a "remember-to". I know you all know how to make eggs and cook veggies. I mean, if you've tackled the brunch frittata, you're a breakfast champion. But I know it's important to be reminded of how much you know and the skills you have acquired during these how many years you've lived. So let me be the one to remind you. You can make an easy, delish breakfast for you and your loved ones. Honestly, you might be surprised at how hearty and satisfying this dish can be. You might be surprised at how much you've improved your cooking over these short months of following this blog. (I know I am!) You might even be surprised that you're more talented than you ever thought. And don't you just love surprises?
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 green pepper, diced
- 1/4 red pepper, diced
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 1/4 avocado, optional
- 2 strips bacon, optional
- Beat 3 eggs in bowl until combined. Set aside.
- Cook strips of bacon on frying pan, flipping every minute or so until cooked to desired crunchiness. Set aside.
- Place avocado oil, red pepper, green pepper, and onion in pan over medium heat. Cook until softened (about 3 minutes).
- Add eggs to pan.
- Stir regularly until scrambled. Cook to your desired consistency. I don't like them runny, but that's my business.
- Spoon eggs onto plate. Garnish with avocado slices and bacon strips.
- Eat and enjoy!
I usually bust this dish out after a hard workout or when I'm just craving some bacon and eggs! I made these while visiting my folks on the west coast and they went crazy over them. Feel free to add spinach for the extra greens. Salt and pepper to taste. Throw some hot sauce on there! Whatever you do, do it with conviction. There is no wrong way to make these babies. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
