Kicked Up Scrambled Eggs

Some days, you just need eggs. I love scrambled eggs, but not the plain boring kind. I like mine kicked up a notch. My secret to awesome scrambled eggs? Hot pepper spread. I use it in anything (well, everything) that needs a spicy kick.

Kicked Up Scrambled Eggs

(Prep, 10 minutes. Cook time, 15 minutes)

Ingredients:

  • 1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
  • 1 Large Onion, chopped
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 4 Cups Egg Beaters (or 8 eggs, beaten)
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Hot Pepper Spread
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese (4 Cheese Blend, Sharp cheese, or Mexican Blend)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Chop up green pepper and onion, mince garlic. Add 2 Tbs olive oil to skillet along with onions, peppers, and garlic. Saute over medium heat until onions are soft and translucent. Add hot pepper spread and eggs. Scramble eggs and cook until desired doneness.  Sprinkle cheese over top of cooked eggs, cover and let sit for three minutes until cheese is melty. Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy.

(I like to put ketchup on them, but Mike thinks that’s gross. He doesn’t know what he’s missing!)
