Sam can cook!

I wanted a yummy, hot, simple and healthy breakfast.

Spanish omlet hit the spot!

2 "egg beaters" healthy eggs,
2 strips of bacon chopped
1 clove of garlic chopped
1 small shallot chopped
1/8 of a green pepper chopped
1/8 of a red pepper chopped
1/8 of a tomato chopped
dash of cayenne pepper to test
dash of ground pepper to test
splash of EVOO
pat of "smart balance" butter
splash of water
Fine shredded Sharp Cheddar
Fine shredded Monterey Jack
Sprinkle of chopped parsley
splash of 100% pomegranate juice to taste.

I started by lightly cooking the bacon, putting it off to the side, and leaving part of the fat in the pan. Then threw in the garlic, shallot, red and green pepper lightly cooking those with the bacon drippings and peppers. Cooked those until hot and tasty, with the shallots lightly caramelized, and the red and green pepper still crunchy. Added chopped tomatoes and cooked to hot. Reserved this mix in a bowl.

Scrambled eggs, splash of EVOO, splash of water, pinch salt and pepper and a liberal splash of Pomegranate juice in a cup, poured them into the hot pan with some melted "smart balance" butter and cooked the first side until the eggs "set" and then gently flipped it. Added the mix of veggie to half the cooking eggs and then added the chopped bacon and cheese. Cooked until eggs where lightly browned and the cheese melted. Slipped it out of the pan onto the plate and flipped the other half of the eggs onto the first half, thus creating the fold. Sprinkled with some parsley and cheese and then ate the evidence!

Total time about 10-15 miuntes, serves 1.
