Western Egg Scramble


That has been my life for the month of January!

I decided I needed to venture out and find some new and creative ways to prepare them. I wasn't sure I could complete this mission, but I think I succeeded at creating at a pretty awesome egg recipe. This is pretty filling so it is something I make for dinner for the two of us, along with some fruit.

(Please don't be scared off by the addition of cream cheese. I promise that the cream cheese is what makes this recipes so awesome!)

1/2 cup chopped peppers
1/4 cup onion
1/2 cup chopped ham
2 oz. cream cheese, cubed
5 eggs
splash of milk

In a skillet saute the onions, peppers, and ham in a little butter (I use a few sprays of I can't believe it's not butter) until tender. Meanwhile mix the 5 eggs with a splash of milk. Add eggs into the skillet and cook like regular scrambled eggs. When they are about 3/4 done add in cream cheese. Continue to cook until cream cheese is melted and mixed.

Serves 2-3

I tend to eat eggs one way... get sick of them, leave them for awhile and then repeat the cycle over. This recipe looks yummy because it has everything good about an omelet, without the hassle. :) I will be trying this out soon, adding it to my list now. :)

Tightwad Mom,

I hear ya! I am not a huge fan to begin with, but if I ate another fried egg I was going to get sick. Yes, I think it is much easier than an omelet...I am not a great egg cooker?!?
