Am I seriously blogging about breakfast? Why, yes. Yes I am.
You see, people on Facebook seem to care about what I'm eating. I'm not really sure why. But they do. Whenever I post a picture of what we're eating, someone inevitably asks for the recipe. While I'm no culinary expert, I do prepare somewhere in the realm of 1000 meals per year, so I guess you could say I've got a little bit of cooking under my belt.
Anyway, I thought instead of just posting a recipe, I would also post pictures since I know how much I appreciate pictures when I'm preparing a meal. And we all know how well this works for our Ree Drummond (Pioneer Woman). People LOVE her. I LOVE her. And I also LOVE her kitchen.
My kitchen isn't nearly as pretty to look at (or as clean, mind you), but here we go anyway...
This is my Breakfast of Champions. Or something like that.
Start out with 3 eggs, a handful of spinach, 1 carrot, 1 onion, 1 brat (err...your choice of meat), garlic, avocado, cheese, and of course...butter. I don't cook anything without butter.
Mmm, I love butter.
Throw a few tablespoons in a non-stick pan (I like my wok-like pan. Say "wok-like" 5x fast.) and turn the burner to medium. Then grate up your carrot and chop your spinach, onion, and meat.
(A brat just happens to be what I had in my fridge. Don't judge.)
Your butter should be all melted now so swirl it around and throw in your chopped goodies.
Let 'em saute in there for about 5 minutes until they are lovely and mushy and then throw in some garlic. (I'm lazy and I buy the minced garlic, but feel free to chop your own if you're so inclined.)
As you're getting ready to put in your eggs, notice that two small humans have suddenly awakened and are hungry. Get out 6 more eggs and add all 9 to the pan. Swirl those around and consider how much less yummy meat you're now going to be eating thanks to the arrival of those small hungry humans.
Scramble up that yummy goodness and top it with shredded cheese. I prefer colby jack, but if you're more a cheddar person or a swiss person, I imagine that'd be good too.
Now here comes the really fun part. Pull your eggs off the burner and cover with a lid. And if you're using a wok-like (wok-like, wok-like, wok-like, wok-like, wok-like) pan that doesn't have a lid, grab the largest lid you have and plan to just hang out there for a few minutes.
Or get really creative and use a spatula to prop the lid precariously on your wok-like pan.
You know, whatever suits your fancy.
Then chop up some avocado....
remove the lid....
and feast on the breakfast of champions (which you are now sharing with those small hungry humans)!
