mastering the art of: eggs

I love it when Sunday mornings start like this – some yoga already under my belt, coffee with a quiet city and some sunshine!

This particular Sunday I decided to make some eggs. Not any eggs, the way eggs are meant to be…
I love eggs – pretty much any way they come, I’ll take ‘em! (I do draw the line at Organic and Cage-Free though!) But I had yet to really master the preparation – real preparation. You know, Half & Half, butter, etc? I usually just pan-fry or poach and don’t get me wrong I love my eggs these ways too but I always like to try new things! I had caught Ina on the Food Network making some eggs so this is what I’m basing it off of. Hey, it could be worse, my Grandmother Leola used to fry eggs in the bacon grease! :)

I turned the burner between 2-3 and then put a pat of butter to melt in the pan (no Pam in these eggs!) I then poured the eggs (2 beat with 1 Tbsp Half & Half) into the pan and slowly, slowly stirred.

Then when they are just about done, add another pat of butter to “stop the cooking” as Ina said…or “make them taste even better?!?!” Whatever the reason, it worked for me. These were honestly the best eggs I have ever had! So creamy (obviously) and I couldn’t get a great picture, but I had to give up – I wasn’t about to sacrifice these eggs for the sake of a picture!
This was definitely a very rich breakfast (I also added some bacon into the mix) and I certainly wouldn’t have it on a daily basis but when I added the calories of the eggs and bacon the calorie count was about 500. Not bad for a totally indulgent, satisfying, special breakfast.

This is an easy, satisfying meal (although anything that involves eggs usually is for me) that comes together quick and provides lots of filling protein and fiber.  I served my eggs over a bed of organic baby romaine and black beans, sprinkled with Habenero hot sauce.

There is something about eggs and beans that I just love! Maybe it reminds me of Mexico – beaches, ocean, sun……take me back!!
