This is my third month as a member of the Secret Recipe Club, and I love the surprise every month of finding out who my secret partner will be and looking through all of the delicious recipes on her blog. This month I was paired up with Tina from Mom's Crazy Cooking. At first I was convinced that I would choose one of her tasty dessert recipes, but in the end I was more in need of dinner, so I turned to Tina's unique recipe for scrambled eggs. She includes cream cheese along with the eggs, which makes for extra fluffy, extra rich eggs that are totally delicious. I made them a complete meal by topping the eggs with avocado, tomatoes, and a bit of cheddar cheese. An easy and delicious meal - thanks, Tina!
Creamy Scramble with Fresh Veggies (adapted from Mom's Crazy Cooking)
Juice of 1/2 lime
Salt and pepper
2 T cream cheese, softened
1 T butter or olive oil
1 small heirloom tomato, roughly chopped
Shredded cheddar cheese
1. Mash the avocado, and then add the lime juice plus salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine well.
2. Whisk together the eggs, cream cheese, and salt and pepper. (The cream cheese won't get completely incorporated, so just aim for breaking up any large chunks.)
3. Melt the butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and stir with a rubber spatula, breaking up any remaining pieces of cream cheese as they melt, until the eggs are done to your liking.
4. Top the eggs with the mashed avocado, chopped tomatoes, and shredded cheese. Serve immediately.
