Cholesterol Overload

Every once in a while on a Saturday morning you have to make a breakfast, or brunch, that sends your cholesterol through the roof, at least that is the case at my house. This Saturday was one of those days; it has been no less than four or five months since we made such a brunch. I used what was on hand, but there are suggestions for additional ingredients.

Steak & Eggs


4-5 eggs
1-2 T water
Hot Sauce, 1 or 2 dashes
Worcestershire sauce, 1 or 2 dashes
Dash of dry mustard
Cheese, shredded, sharp cheddar is best
Salt and pepper

Beat eggs with all above ingredients including water, except cheese. It is said that a little water keeps eggs fluffy. Add and stir cheese into the egg mixture as the final step.

To the side:
Sliced and cubed left-over steak
Mushrooms, sliced
Onions, chopped, to taste
2 T butter

Optional ingredients:
Green pepper, chopped
Fresh tomato, chopped
Jalapeno pepper, about 2 crosswise slices, chopped or to taste
Left over, cooked rice

Saute' steak, onions, mushrooms, and jalapeno in butter. If adding rice, add it after the saute' ingredients are well heated. Add the egg mixture and scramble. Add the green pepper and fresh tomatoes a minute or so before the eggs are done, leaving the green pepper a little crunchy.
I did not have green pepper or a fresh tomato in the fridge, but those truly add to the scrambled egg dish.

Serve with pan fried potatoes - baked potatoes sliced then fried in butter, biscuits or tortillas for a breakfast taco, salsa, orange juice or fruit on the side.

This was our big meal for the day. After a breakfast like the one above, there is not much room for anything else. :D

As an aside, I had no time to dress up the presentation because hubby was so hungry that I barely had time to take a picture. And, I've also discovered that cooked eggs don't photograph very well, or I need to learn how to take better pictures. Methinks it is the latter. :D

Until next time, God bless.

Wimberley is about 30 miles away; but as you know, anything within 50 miles of your home in Texas is considered next door. lol

I tried but made a mess. Nothing like the pic seems I really am bad cook.

Kim, there is no telling how many cooking messes I've made and still make whenever I try something new or even a dish I've done several times. lol

If it tasted good, you were a success; if it did not, it's try again. You get timing down with practice.
