If you have been visiting the blog recently you have seen a ton of sweet treats like these... and these.... and these. Contrary to as it may appear I do actually cook healthy foods too! Today I want to share with you one of my favorite weekend breakfasts - it's easy, has lots of protein, and is full of flavor!
Southwest Scrambled Egg Whites
You will need:
2 whole eggs
4 egg whites
1/2 of a red, yellow, orange, or green pepper, sliced into strips
1/4 of an onion, sliced into strips
1/2 teaspoon of crushed garlic
A pinch of seasoning salt (Johnny's is my favorite) and pepper (more to taste)
1 avocado, sliced (optional)
Coat your frying pan with olive oil.
Put the frying pan over medium heat.
Once the pan is heated, add the sliced peppers and onions.
Cook until soft.
Turn burner down to medium-low and addd garlic to pepper and onion mixture, stirring occasionally so garlic doesn't burn.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, milk, seasoning salt, and pepper.
Pour egg mixture into frying pan over cooked veggies.
With a spatula, scrape the egg mixture from the bottom to scramble eggs. Continue to scramble until the eggs are almost set.
Take the eggs off of the burner and let them sit another minute to continue cooking.
Serve with sliced avocado and toast
This recipe serves 2-3 people and is easily doubled, tripled, etc. depending on how many people you are serving.
