Hopefully everyone enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, the great company of family and friends, the excellent eats, the turkey and all the trimmings, the pies, cookies and cakes... and of course, being thankful for what we have.
But it's time to get back on the diet, back to re-establishing those good eating habits after indulging a bit over the holiday break.
Besides, just how many turkey day leftovers can one have before that gets 'food boring?'
Here's a nice Sunday morning breakfast with a bit of a kick. After all, you can only eat so much of your Mother's Turkey/Broccoli Quiche.....
Bacon & Egg Scramble
- 4 slices of bacon, rough chopped
- 1/2 a medium onion, diced
- 3 eggs
- A splash of milk
- 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- Black pepper
- 1 teaspoon Louisiana Hot Sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- A handful of shredded cheddar cheese
Fire up a frying pan over medium heat and crisp up the bacon, remove the bacon from the pan and set aside. Using that great bacon fat, put the onion in the pan to soften them up. TIP: Don't try to crisp up bacon and saute onions in the same pan at the same time thinking you'll save a step, it won't work. The chemical reaction between onions and bacon means under-cooked bacon and over-cooked onions. Once the onions are too your liking, drain off any excess fat, add the bacon back to the pan, add the Louisiana Hot Sauce and black pepper, stir lightly until the hot sauce and black pepper are well incorporated. Scramble the eggs with the milk, garlic powder, seasoning salt and add to the pan. Add the shredded cheese and stir until the eggs are creamy and delicious!
This is WAY better than quiche.
