Equipment: Spatula, Pan, stove, cook on medium or number 5, oil pan if necessary
Look in the refrigerator and see what fresh vegetables are on hand. I am using the following:
¼ Yellow Onion
¼ Green Bell Pepper
¼ Red Bell Pepper
¼ Orange Bell Pepper
1 Tomato per person or per 3 eggs
1 small green onion
6 snack carrots or ½ of a carrot
1 Jalapeno Pepper
1 Tablespoon of paprika
1 ½ of Lemon Pepper
1 Tablespoon of Basil
1 Tablespoon of Parsley
1 Tablespoon of Italian
1 stalk (branch) of celery
1/4 -1/2 Cup Sharp Cheddar cheese (Substitute with cream cheese and a tablespoon of milk, cottage cheese, mozzarella or powder cheese and milk or water)
The seasonings are primarily for the vegetables. The reason is they are water based and water weakens flavor. The lemon pepper is for the tomatoes to draw out the water and enhance the flavors of the vegetables and eggs and cheese. The basil is for the tomatoes because it heightens the flavor of the cooked tomatoes. A little tip, if you put basil on uncooked tomatoes, use oil. Vegetable oil is cheaper and just as good as olive oil.
Do not cut these by hand if you can help it. It takes about 30 minutes to wash, rinse and cut all these vegetables by hand. I use dishwashing soap and a cap of bleach to wash my vegetable because there are some bacteria soap kills and some that bleach kills. Some people use vinegar.
Wash vegetables and put into your blender or chopper. Sometimes I add the seasonings in the blender including the eggs when I am feeling lazy. When you add the eggs all the seasoning comes out when you pour mixture into hot pan. You can add cheese just before you pour into pan or after you pour into pan. Using a spatula knead or fold eggs over as they cook. Fold from the bottom meaning scrape the bottom of the pan. This is why you oil the pan so it’s easy to fold and chop the eggs as they are cooking.
This is good for 6 eggs and is enough to feed 2-3 people and four if you do not eat a lot in one sitting. Eggs are ready when they are no longer runny and are stiff. If you wait until a bit stiff you get more of a cheesy taste. Place on a plate with a biscuit, syrup and bacon of choice. They are good as leftovers just put in a container with a tight lid and refrigerate. Reheat next day in microwave for one minute. Do not add water when reheating. 30 seconds to 60 seconds max heating time. LUTG RADIO Show with Kathy Brocks starts Monday - Friday at 9 am, www.lutgradio.com/podcast .
