Early 4th of July Celebrators

    WIN_20150702_160411 (2)

    At three in the morning some neighbor decided to shoot off fireworks. It accomplished two things. It woke Diva and me up and it upset Diva. . . well, I’m not thrilled by this early celebrator. This is not going to be good.

    I was in a hang-out last night with my internet marketing group. One person was commenting about how unhappy his dogs were. There were fireworks going off in his neighborhood last night. And his dogs are all much older than my precious Diva. They were hiding out to get away from the noise.

    One thing I can say about my little girl, she is brave. She has let it be known that she didn’t appreciate having her sleep disturbed by such nonsense. I was surprised other dogs in the neighborhood weren’t protesting. They must have hidden out. Or slept through it. We’ll have to wait and see how the day and night progress.

    As long as I’m up, I guess a recipe is in order. I do wonder what would be appropriate for 3 in the morning, but I’m sure I can stir up something.

    I am feeling like eggs. Some nice fluffy scrambled eggs. This is a good I was awakened at 3 in the morning by fireworks breakfast. Yes, I think these scrambled eggs would be excellent on toast or an English muffin . . . or even a bagel.

    3 A.M. Impromptu Breakfast

    Let’s get the ingredients gathered:

    This recipe will serve 3 or fewer, depending upon how hungry everyone is. If you need more just double the recipe.

    • 6 large eggs
    • 3 tablespoons of diced butter
    • 2 tablespoons of sour cream
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 3 chives or green onions
    • 3 slices of the bread of your choice or English muffins or bagels

    Now to put this recipe together:

    1. Break the eggs into a cold pan, then place on the lowest heat.
    2. Add half the butter.
    3. Stir continuously to combine the yolks with the whites.
    4. When the eggs begin to set, add the remaining butter.
    5. The eggs will take approximately 4 to 5 minutes to scramble. You’ll want them to be soft and lumpy.
    6. You can now toast the bread, muffin or bagel.
    7. Add the sour cream, salt and pepper at the last minute. Then top with chives or the green onion.
    8. Put the toast on the plate and pile the scrambled egg mixture on top and serve.

    This was easy enough, even at 3 in the morning. And it is so very delicious!

    Hearty Egg Breakfast Recipe



    This Hearty Egg Breakfast Recipe could also work for Brunch or even Dinner

    Initially I thought this was going to be an easy recipe, just throw everything in one pan and you’re good to go . . . but there’s a lot of chopping and shredding and you’re going to dirty up two bowls for the 4 eggs you separate — one for the whites and the other for the yolks.

    I’ll quit complaining and get on with the recipe.

    But, before I do, I’d like to say that this recipe is only a suggestion. You can add to it or delete from it. This is merely a suggestion.

    Here we go with the ingredients:

    • I already mentioned separating 4 eggs — whites in one bowl and yolks in another
    • 1/2 cup of cheese — it could be sharp cheddar or it could be a cheese of your choice
    • 1/2 cup of chopped tomatoes
    • 1/2 cup of meat — this could be interesting — bacon, ham, sausage, pepperoni, steak, roast beef — whatever you want to put into this delicious egg dish
    • 1/4 cup chopped green onions or you could go with a regular white onion or a red onion or is it purple . . .
    • Now, you can garnish with parsley or with chives or with mushrooms, green bell pepper slices — do what sounds good to you
    • Toast

    Now for the directions:

    1. I’m sure you’ve already separated your 4 eggs and sliced and diced the other ingredients — if not, get to work!
    2. You’re going to start out by cooking only the egg whites for 2 to 3 minutes on a low to medium heat
    3. Add the cheese, tomatoes, onions, meat and whatever you decided to chop up
    4. Continue cooking for another minute or two
    5. Add in the egg yolks and mix everything together evenly
    6. Continue cooking for 3 to 4 minutes
    7. Serve on toast, garnish with parsley or salsa or green bell peppers or avocado or whatever your heart desires — did I hear bacon bits? 

    I know I added more ingredients at the end, but you get the idea — this is your egg breakfast so make your family proud!
