I know I will seem like a hypocrite for posting this, but here I go. In my about page I mention a few fun facts about myself. One fact I mentioned is that I don’t like eggs and here I am posting an egg recipe that I actually liked. I know…it’s a total shocker. First let me explain myself for trying this recipe. I’m desperately trying to love eggs, but for some reason I’m insanely weird. I figured if I continue to force myself to eat eggs, I eventually will like them.
I’ve always felt like the oddball. My relatives, friends, strangers all seem to enjoy eggs and I couldn’t understand why. To me, eggs smell and taste funny. I even tried to trick myself to like eggs by pouring an excessive amount of ketchup over scramble eggs and that didn’t even work…such a bad idea.
Growing up, my family didn’t cook eggs nor eat eggs. I guess it’s a family thing. When Easter came around, my parents didn’t bother. Instead, I had a large easter basket filled colorful plastic eggs and candy. When I would attend Easter parties, I would just collect the Easter eggs for fun and let others eat them. Maybe ten years from now I might appreciate eggs.
Here’s my question you: What’s your least favorite food?
The author from Cookie and Kate listed variations to try:
-sharp cheddar with dill, feta or goat cheese
-pepper jack and cilantro
-swiss and paprika
Eggs and Potato Breakfast Scramble
Adapted from Cookie and Kate
6 ounces red potatoes diced (or enough to cover a pan in a single layer)
1/4 cup water
2 tsp olive oil
pinch of salt
3 large eggs
dash of milk
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup cheese, grated
1 Tbsp fresh or dried herbs
Combine water, potatoes, oil, and salt in a pan. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook for 5 minutes or until the water evaporated. Lightly brown the potatoes and loosen the potatoes from the bottom of the pan. Add in the herbs.
Scramble eggs with milk and pour into the pan, toss in the scallions. Scramble until the eggs are set and remove from the heat. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top and serve immediately.
