Brilliant Brunch: Western Scramble

Print Friendly and PDF

If it wasn't for John, I probably wouldn't have eaten this week.  Not joking. I was out of the house every morning by 7 a.m. and the earliest I got home any of these last 5 weeknights was 7 p.m.  It was awful; my favorite part of any day is getting home and spending time with John (aw, aren't we cute?!). 

So when I can't have my Johnny time, I can get very cranky.  To make matters only worse, I was exhausted but the minute my head went down on the pillow my brain went into overdrive.  I literally tossed and turned half the night kept up by more work that I hadn't gotten to in the 12 hours I was sitting at my desk.  Poor John had to deal with cranky me, and then was kept up by my tossing, turning, kicking, and restlessness. 

By Wednesday, well, I was ready for this weekend.  However, once the weekend came, I couldn't get myself to sleep in.  I was awake and restless but didn't want to wake John, who suffered in his own ways last week.  What to do?  Well, I got up to make him a western omelet - his favorite.  What did we learn?  That I can't make an omelet.  I'm going to keep working on it but when a few eggs crack, make a scramble.  Just as good with less stress - exactly what I needed this weekend!
Western Scramble
Serves:  2
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup green peppers, diced
1/2 cup red peppers, diced
1/2 cup white onion, diced
1 tomato, diced
3 eggs
1/3 cup skim milk
1/4 cup low-fat mexican shredded cheese blend

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add green peppers, red peppers, and onion to the skillet and saute 3-5 minutes, until onions are translucent.   Add tomato and cook an additional minute.  Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together eggs and skim milk.  Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook the eggs, stirring often, over medium heat. 

Once the eggs are fully cooked through, stir in cheese.  Serve immediately. 
Until the next time my oven is on...
