‘Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory’
I thought since this was my first post it would be fitting to start with the most important meal of the day….breakfast. Today I decided to make a ‘confetti egg for one’. My husband is not a big breakfast person so today it’s just me. It is very simple. I am going to do it while I enjoy a cup of coffee in my favorite cup.
You Will Need:
- Cooking Spray
- 1 Egg
- 1 Tablespoon Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Diced Red Bell Pepper
- Salt and Pepper
- Shredded Cheese
To make this egg I am using a 1 cup ramekin which I lightly spray with olive oil cooking spray. I then break one egg into the ramekin and remove ‘the string’, at least that’s what my Mama always called it. It is just a habit I guess. I then add 1 Tablespoon of milk. (I use half and half because I am totally addicted to it).
I then added 1 Tablespoon of diced red bell pepper and little salt and pepper. Sometimes I will add fresh chopped jalapeno or onions. It’s always fun to play with different ingredients. Dill is very good with eggs, just sayin’. This morning I just happened to have an attractive red pepper staring at me when I opened the frig so that is what I’m using.
I use a fork and stir it well. Then I cover it with a paper towel and put it in the microwave for 35 seconds. It will start to puff up around the edges. I then take it out, stir it a bit and put it back in for another 35 seconds. All microwaves are different so just experiment with it. I have a cheapo model but I do believe they work the best.
I take the fork and slide it out face up on my plate. Beautiful. I added some shredded pepper jack cheese on top and toasted half of an onion ciabatta roll to go with mine. Enjoy and have a fabulous day.
