Hearty, Healthy, and Simple! I love to throw together a dish like this, nothing fancy, yet when you take that first bite…you feel like ” Oh, Captain Crunch, I’m not trading cereal in completely …..but this is to good to pass up !”
Very much like my grandmother, Sittu, she would never pass up the chance to cook & tell stories. Especially when I’d come home with the boys after being out to a football or hockey game. As for the boys they jumped at the chance to get to drop me home safe and sound because they knew something good was going on in the kitchen. We would try to stay out later than my grandfather, only I think he was able to sneak a nap in the afternoon allowing him to play cards til the wee hours!
As we teenagers sat about the table, Sittu set them to task, like chopping onions. The aroma units begin to fill the air as she begins the interrogation; “where are you from, who’s your people” You see, for her it was important that you know where you come from, who you belong to, that way you know where you are going, and what your made of.
Whether she was putting a plate of meatballs in front of you, or a plate of eggs, she filled your soul with a comfort and a sense of belonging.
This recipe is really as easy as;
8 eggs, whisk in a bowl
2 Tablespoons of oil in a skillet
Add 1 cup of veggies ( onion, potato, spinach, broccoli ) ( bacon is optional )
Sauté veggies 5 minutes, add eggs, salt & pepper
Stir gently about 3 to 5 minutes
Place in oven at 350 for about 8 -10 minutes.
