'applewood smoked' scrambled eggs

eggs9

I am not a big breakfast person. I like breakfast food, but chances are, if I am eating it, it's probably after 11am. But I do love eggs, bacon, toast, and pancakes for all it's worth. So on this Sunday morning I wanted something with a smokey flavor, like I had cooked it in the grease from bacon. But I find bacon grease kind of disgusting when I have to cook with it, so I decided to make a completely vegetarian egg dish by using a few items in my pantry. (PS looking for other vegetarian recipes - I've got lots!)

What You'll Need
1 Cup Egg Beaters (or 2-3 large eggs)
1/4 Teaspoon Liquid Smoke
2 Teaspoons Soymilk or Skim Milk
1 Teaspoon Apple Cider
1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Sea Salt
Pepper & Seasoned Salt To Taste
Sharp White Cheddar
Unsalted Butter or Margarine

First, in a skillet, melt about 1/2 Tablespoon of butter. You don't need much - just wanna grease the pan a bit.

While that's melting, whip together 1 cup of egg beaters (you know...eggs from a carton.....it's what I had), 1/4 tsp. liquid smoke, 2 tsps milk or soy milk, 1 tsp apple cider, and 1/2 tsp smoked sea salt (or seasoned salt if you need.)

Pour your egg mixture in. Stir slowly with a spatula scraping the edges over medium heat. They will start to harden.

Once the eggs form completely but are not quite done yet, add in 1/4 cup cheddar and salt and pepper to taste and stir well.

I continue cooking until slightly browned because I like my eggs well done! Season with seasoned salt and pepper near the end.

Serve with bacon, turkey bacon (my choice - Applewood Farms stuff is so yummy), tofu bacon, or whatever your heart desires! So yummy!

I got a little full at the end...so the leftovers went to Teemo! Mine my crappy apartment flooring.

  6. This looks amazing. Breakfast is my favorite meal, but I hardly ever eat it (and definitely not before 9 AM). Those eggs look heavenly. Even Teemo likes them. :)

  8. what a great idea to add liquid smoke. i usually just cook with the fake bacon, but it's probably not the same as the real stuff!!

  9. Teemo knows something good too. I love breakfast actually, but generally eat a proper breakfast on the weekend. Waffles and Eggs Benedict is my favourite. xo
