Call me a late bloomer but it's only been recently that I went to watch a movie by myself. I don't know why it took me this long, but I tell you, it was liberating. Liberating in the sense that I get to pick what I want to watch... sit where I want to sit and do the silliest things like sprinkle hot sauce and add chocolate m&ms in my popcorn. I didn't have to think of how another person would feel seeing my popcorn flavor!
The movie that I watched was Morning Glory... shhh yeah I know, it's one of those movies. In fact the movie was very predictable. But sometimes I love movies that don't require for me to think nor get myself scared... oh well that's why there are chic flicks... and that's why they make movies like this for people like me.
Although this happened a few months ago, I am reminded of the movie Morning Glory because of my husband's question this morning while I was making breakfast. He asked me how do you make fluffy eggs just like in the restaurants. And the answer I could give him was from Harrison Ford's line in the movie. He said that the secret to a fluffy egg dish is a hot pan. Indeed, it's that simple, and as I made this almost perfect egg texture my husband craves for... let me share with you one of my family's weekend breakfast favorites, what we call Beachside Skillet.
5 eggs. beaten (in a bowl) with a small amount of milk
1 pack of sausage, fried and sliced
salt and pepper to taste
strips of bell pepper
1 medium tomato, sliced
1/2 medium onions, sliced
1 potato, boiled and sliced (I actually used potatoes from a left-over dish)
a slice of butter
On a hot pan (with a little cooking oil) mix together onions, tomatoes, pepper and sausage slices. Created a space in the middle, where you will pour the beaten eggs. Wait for a few minutes until the egg starts to form. Fold the eggs (do not stir), slide and fold to cook.
When the egg is not runny, take it off the pan just to get the right texture and fluffiness, add butter if desired... Season with salt and pepper...
It's that simple and for sure, your day will get off to a great start, as you started with this oh so perfect fluffy egg skillet... enjoy!
