some of you have asked what i do when i’m just cooking for myself. well, it’s really not that different than when i’m cooking for both the mountain man and i, however i tend not to use recipes as often and just wing it with whatever i have in the kitchen. case in point – any breakfast i make.
each morning i make two breakfasts, one for him, and one for me. we rarely want the same thing at the same time, and i need more variety than he does in my morning food routine. when i’m in a rush and need to get out the door, i fall back on a variation of a basic scramble my mom used to make when i was a kid.
it’s pretty easy – halve a handful of cherry tomatoes and cook them in a small cast iron pan on medium heat. while those are warming up, whisk one egg with a pinch of garlic salt and a pinch of italian seasoning in a small bowl. pour the egg mixture in with the tomatoes, gently folding with a silicone spatula for 4-5 min as the egg sets. if you have a toaster oven, set it to broil. once the eggs have cooked, sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite cheese (omit to keep paleo), and place the pan in the toaster oven. broil for 2-3 min, till cheese has melted, and serve immediately. if you don’t have a toaster oven, turn the stove down to low, and let the cheese melt on your scramble on the stove-top. enjoy!
