EoMEoTE #3: "Local Boy" Omelette on Toasted Pao Doce
I had honestly wanted to participate in this online event previously. On the first go around, I was too hungry to take a photo of my eggs on toast before gobbling them up. On the second go around, I had come down with a fever. Once again, unable to participate. In this latest go around, I was more determined than ever to participate. Here is my creation for this month's event.
"Local boy" scrambled egg omelette with Spam® and melted cheddar cheese, topped with green onions, seasoned with fresh ground black pepper, all sitting atop a nice thick slice of toasted and buttered pao doce (Portuguese sweet bread). How's that?
In case you're wondering, here's the recipe:
2 large eggs
2 slices Spam®, about 1/4" thick
small handful of shredded mild cheddar cheese
1 stalk green onion, chopped
scant 1 tablespoon milk
1 slice pao doce, about 1" thick
-Toast pao doce until lightly browned. Spread with unsalted butter. Set aside.
-Whisk eggs with milk until frothy. Set aside.
-Take two 1/4" slices of Spam® and roughly chop. Stir-fry until crisp. Drain and set aside.
-Spray a non-stick sauté pan with cooking spray (or for those of you that are not mindful of what they eat, use one tablespoon unsalted butter).
-Add eggs and stir until eggs start to come together. Add in cooked Spam® and continue to stir until set. (I like them soft scrambled). Remove from heat and transfer to toast.
-Top with a handful of shredded mild cheddar cheese and put under the broiler until cheese has melted (about 2 minutes).
-Top with chopped green onions and serve.
Thanks a lot folks for dreaming this one up. Is this going to become a monthly worldwide blogging event? Judging by the participation of Sam of Becks & Posh, Viv of Seattle Bon Vivant, Santos of The Scent of Green Bananas and yours truly, it looks like we're well on our way. Just a side note, how many times is one able to present eggs on toast creatively? We'll just have to wait and see, won't we?
