So, this morning I went to make my husband and myself a veggie and scrambled-egg dish for breakfast. I chopped the onions, diced the avocado, chopped the tomatoes, crumbled the goat cheese, and prepared the turkey bacon. As I began sautéing the onions, I realized … uh oh, we are out of eggs! The hubby offered to run to the store for eggs, but I had a better idea.
You see, I hard boil between a half-dozen and an entire dozen of organic eggs per week and then keep them in the refrigerator. That’s one of my “tricks” to always having healthy protein available at a minute’s notice.
I went to work using my hard boiled eggs. To be honest, it gets boring just eating them plain or sliced in salads! So I was glad to try something new with them.
For just my husband and me, I took out four hard-boiled eggs and chopped them up and set them aside. After I sautéed the onions with the turkey bacon, I then added the avocados and tomatoes. After a minute or two, I added the chopped hard-boiled eggs. After another few minutes, I added the goat cheese. Voila, hard-boiled egg scramble!
It was delicious! And easy! And a nutritious way to start the day!
Hard-Boiled Egg Scramble
- 4 organic hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
- 3 slices organic turkey bacon, chopped
- 1/2 white onion, chopped
- 1/2 large tomato, chopped
- 1/2 avocado, diced
- 2 oz. crumbled goat cheese
Sauté onions with bacon in a skillet (I do not use Teflon or other non-stick coated cookware because of the toxins. I either use steel/cast iron or ceramic cookware – currently considered safe). When the onions turn a translucent color, add tomatoes and avocados. Let cook for a few minutes. Then add the hard-boiled eggs and cook for another few minutes. Finally, add the crumbled goat cheese, let sit in the pan for a minute. Serve and enjoy!
