This whole breakfast took me less than 10 minutes. So for those people who say they don’t have time to make a delicious, healthy breakfast and choose to simply pop a bagel in the toaster and grab a yogurt, are totally full of shit.
I was home alone on Sunday morning and decided to get crackin on my Escaping Eggoredom egg ideas. So this recipe served just me! However, I tend to eat a lot, so this may actually work for 2. Up the eggs and quantities of the goodies according to how many you are going to feed.
- 1/2 large shallot, diced
- 1/2 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon sun-dried tomato flakes
- Chiffonade of fresh basil, 3 large leaves
- 3 eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
I started with a warm pan on medium heat, and my ghetto-blaster-ipod-thingy blasting my jams. I added 1 olive oil ‘Z’ and let that heat for about 30 seconds. I added the diced shallots and minced garlic along with a pinch of seat salt and a couple turns of cracked pepper (add your salt and pepper to taste). I let that saute until the shallots were tender. I added 3 eggs and the sun-dried tomato flakes and scrambled them up. Just before the eggs were done I added the fresh basil chiffonade.
At the same time as the eggs were cooking, in a separate pan, also on medium heat, I added 2 Z’s of olive oil and 1 sliced chicken apple sausage. I cooked this for about 5 minutes until browned.
Before I started the eggs and sausage, I cut 2 strawberries in half and hollowed them out a bit, and also cut open a pineapple and sliced it into thin chunks. I had bought a baby coconut at whole foods- have you seen them? The ones with the straws? I poured out the coconut water, and took the coconut outside and slammed it to the ground 3 times to crack it open. That was pretty much my workout for the day.
Once it was open, I scooped out small pieces of the wonderful fatty meat, and made little coconut fruit bites. I also made a mental note to serve these at the next party that I am invited to. They were pretty much amazing.
There it is… my whole breakfast in under 10 minutes. A delicious and hefty amount of protein, a bit of fruit, and a bit of yummy fat. I said delicious and there wasn’t even bacon in it… that’s when you know it’s good!
