Breakfast should be part of everyone's day. Did you know that studies show that if you eat breakfast you have a greater chance of maintaining a healthy weight. I don't know about you, but I love studies that tell me if I EAT I will keep my weight at a healthy place!
I'm not saying you should eat such an elaborate breakfast as this but when you're looking for a real treat, give this a try. I made this for my boys (Neal & Quinn) Neal loved it and Quinn took a bite and replied, "Best Breakfast EVER!" Their smiles made my time in the kitchen worth it. So here's how I did this:
- I used 2 baked potatoes that were left over from the night before. If you don't have these leftovers, you can put the 2 potatoes in the microwave for 2 - 4 min. depending on the size of the potato. You only want to cook it about 3/4 of the way. Dice the potatoes into bite size pieces.
- Put 1 tbsp olive or avocado oil in a pan over med. high heat. and add the potatoes. Stir. Cut up 1 red pepper and slice 1 small onion or 1/2 a med. onion. After cooking the potatoes for about 5 min. add peppers and onions. Cook for about 2 min and turn heat down to low. Crack 4 eggs into the pan. Cover and cook for 4 min. or until whites become slightly hardened.
Pour 1/2 cup of Enchilada Sauce over eggs. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup grated cheese. Place in broiler on high and cook until cheese melts. Remove from oven and top with 4 tsp plain yogurt and fresh cilantro!
- Serve with some fresh cut cantaloupe and get ready for the "Best Breakfast Ever!"
