How to “hide” veggies in their food!

Do you have trouble getting family members to eat their vegetables? Most moms do when it comes to their kids. While others have picky husbands. I know my husband would not pick up spinach or sweet peppers and eat them on his own. But in this recipe he asks me to add the sweet peppers!

SCORE!

It is really a very simple breakfast (or whenever meal) to make. It is what I would call a non-traditional omelet. I say it is non-traditional because it is not flat nor pretty like omelets I have been served in restaurants. I actually think it is better. I don’t add any grease to the skillet, you cook in the bacon grease. I like it best when the edges get crisp and crunchy.

What you will need:

skillet

spatula

*eggs (I use 2 eggs per person)

*bacon (I use 2-3 slices of bacon per person)

*spinach, sweet peppers or other veggies you have on hand (chopped)

salt and pepper

I start by cutting the bacon into bite size pieces and frying in the skillet. You need to cook it until it is done the way you like your bacon. I prefer a bit more crisp than my husband so I find a happy medium so we are both happy.

While it is cooking cut up your veggies and add to the skillet with the bacon. The veggies will cook up soft and have bacon flavor!

YA! for bacon flavor!

I break the eggs into a bowl and scramble them with salt and pepper before pouring into the bacon and veggies.

Once you get the bacon/veggies cooked to your liking, add the eggs.

I let it flow into the bacon/veggies before I move it around.

I use the spatula and mix it a bit to get it spread out into the skillet. Lift the edge of the “omelet” gently to let some of the egg flow under to cook evenly. Before I flip it in half I add any other ingredients here. My husband likes his spicy so (on his half) I add crushed red peppers. You can add cheese or any other toppings you would like.

I then fold it over to close it up and let it cook a few minutes longer. I press down on it so any uncooked egg squeezes out and cooks. I flip it once to make sure it is cooked good on both sides. I cut it in half while cooking to make it easier to handle.

When you remove it lay it on a paper towel to absorb some of the grease.

Put on a plate add some fresh fruit, orange juice or milk and breakfast is served. It takes about 15 minutes start to finish.

I hope you will see your kids eat it as quick as my grandsons do. They love it!

Let me know what you try and what works for your kiddos.

Enjoy life,

*The bacon I use is uncured. I use organic vegetables and fruits. I use grass-fed meats whenever possible. I use organic free-range eggs. It is sometimes hard to find organic, grass-fed, and free-range anything but do your best to find the best. It is better for you and your family.
