Nice and colorful breakfast this Easter morning!  AND, the nesting blue jay’s eggs are gorgeous.

Poached Egg, Sweet Potato, and Veggie Breakfast

1 slice turkey bacon, cooked
1 egg
1/2 cup fresh spinach
1/4 cup diced sweet red peppers
2 scallions, diced
1/2 cup leftover roasted sweet potato

Start the poaching water.  Directions for poaching the egg can be found here:

Sweet potato recipe is here:
https://locarbjabberwockey.wordpress.com/2013/06/22/roasted-chicken-thighs-with-sweet-potatoes/

Get the egg into the poaching water…

Add potatoes, scallions, and sweet red peppers to a non stick pan that has been lightly sprayed with olive oil (I have a Misto) over medium high heat.  Saute until potatoes are warm all the way through. At the same time you can toss the turkey bacon into the pan, it just needs to be browned.

By the time the egg is done poaching the potatoes, veggies and bacon should be done.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Freezer Breakfast Bowls – Cooking in Bulk February 22, 2015

Freezer Breakfast Bowl

.

We finally got a breather this weekend and are not traveling to any fencing tournaments, so it’s time to catch up on some freezer breakfasts for my kiddo!  These can be popped straight from the freezer to microwave, or you can pull one out the night before and let it thaw a little before microwaving.  Either way it makes for an easier morning if your teenager is slow to get moving before school, and this is far more filling than a bowl of cereal.

COST.  Recently a friend and I were discussing monthly food budgets. She is feeding two adults, two teenage boys, and one teenage girl on a very tight budget. As a result of this conversation I have started paying more attention to the cost of my meals.  Here is the breakdown (none of my items were on sale, and I did not shop at a superstore):

.

Potatoes               $ 2.99
Eggs                      $ 2.68
Chicken Sasuage $ 4.99
Green onions       $  .69
Red bell pepper  $ 1.50
Cheddar               $ 1.25
+ ——
$14.10

So, for 12 servings, that works out to $1.17 per serving.  To save some $$ on this dish, you could omit the sausage, and use 6 more eggs instead.

Country Scramble Breakfast Bowls

5 lb Red potatoes
18 eggs
1 lb Chicken Sausage
8 green onions, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced finely
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp olive oil
Kosher salt and cracked black pepper

.

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Dice potatoes into 1 inch cubes. No need to peel! Spread evenly on two baking sheets. Drizzle with olive oil, add salt and pepper to taste. Roast for about 25 minutes. Turn potatoes halfway through using a spatuala, and if your oven cooks unevenly like mine, swap pans on the racks.

.

Meanwhile, cook the sausage and red bell pepper together. Remove to a large bowl.

.

Scramble the eggs, and cook over medium heat. Remove eggs to the bowl with the sausage. Add the diced green onions, and mix well.

.

Time to assemble!

Add about 1 cup potatoes to 12 freezer containers.
Top potatoes with about 3/4 cup of egg/sausage/veggie mixture.
Sprinkle each one with a little cheddar cheese.
FREEZE!

Perfect Poached Eggs August 24, 2014

Perfect Poached Eggs

.

Poached Eggs.  How hard can it be ?

Well, if you are fussy about the perfect consistency of the yolk, it can be hard !  For me, I like it to be like a nice thick gravy – and since it’s been a while since I made poached eggs, it took me a couple of tries to get the time right.  By the way, that yolk was not Photoshopped!  We have chickens (I call them “my girls”), and I had been feeding them a little more corn than usual, which contributes to a fabulous orange colored yolk.

.

Perfect Poached Eggs and Turkey Bacon
2 slices turkey bacon
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vinegar
Kosher salt and cracked black pepper

Bring 1 cup of water up to boiling.  Turn down the heat a touch so the water is just barely bubbling.  Add vinegar.  Crack an egg into a small bowl or cup.  Gently slide it into the water.  Cook for exactly 4 minutes!  Sometimes I find after about 3 minutes that the top of the egg needs a little more cook time so I gently roll it over with a large spoon.

While the egg is cooking, toss the turkey bacon into a non-stick pan and brown both sides.

When the egg is done take it out of the water with a slotted spoon to a folded paper towel, roll it over to “dry” both sides.

Jabberwock’s Breakfast Burritos March 23, 2013

breakfast4burrito600x402.

Not low carb, but not for me !  Every few weeks I make breakfast burritos which makes school mornings MUCH easier.  My 12 year old can just pop these straight from the freezer into the microwave, slice up an apple and have a pretty darned good breakfast that will tide her over to lunchtime at school.

Jabberwock’s Breakfast Burritos

1 lb. chicken sausage
18 eggs, scrambled
1 package frozen O’Brien potatoes
Cheddar cheese, grated
Medium tortilla shells

Cook the sausage, remove to large bowl.  Cook the eggs, remove to bowl.  Brown the potatoes until outsides are nice and crispy, remove to bowl. Mix well. Taste the mixture and add salt/pepper if needed.

Layout tortilla shells.  I used a cookie dough scooper, and placed two level scoops of the egg mixture on each tortilla. Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese ontop of the egg mixture, and roll up into burritos.

Individually wrap each burrito in plastic wrap, and pop into the freezer.  When a quick and easy breakfast is needed heat in microwave on high for 1-2 minutes.  For crusty outside, you can spray some oil into a non-stick pan and brown up the outside a little on med-high heat if desired.
