Sundays are meant to be lazy. I always sleep in and when I wake up I take my time relishing the fantasy of not having to do anything. And then I waddle my way through the day like the fantasy will never end and Monday will never come. Remember the failed loaf of bread experiment? Note to self: Sundays aren’t for making bread either.
This morning’s breakfast was a delicious scramble. It started off with the intent of being an omelette. But it’s a Sunday, the need to carefully fold the omelette wasn’t going to happen on a lazy Sunday morning. So instead, swishing around of the spatula cooked it just the same and it was absolutely delicious. Throw in any odds and ends you have in your fridge. Our scramble had spinach, heirloom tomatoes, and cheddar and parmesan cheese. I like my scramble extremely soft and almost runny inside. Cook it at low heat, use lots of butter, and this delicious and comforting meal comes together easily even if your eyes are half open. Like I said, Sundays are meant to be lazy.
The quantities in the recipe below are just rough suggestions, as are the ingredients. Precision isn’t a requirement, that would require too much effort on a Sunday morning.
Lazy Sunday Scramble
What you need:
salt and pepper
handful of spinach, chopped
handful of heirloom tomatoes, roughly sliced
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
sprinkle of chili flakes
butter (about a centimetre thick off a butter block)
What to do:
1. Beat the eggs in a bowl and add a generous amount of salt and pepper. Add the cheddar and parmesan cheese, spinach, tomatoes and chili flakes. Whisk together.
2. Heat butter over medium low heat in a pan. Be careful not to brown it.
3. Add in the egg mixture and use a spatula to rim the edges.
4. Attempt to fold in half. If that fails, use spatula to break apart. Once it’s cooked on the outside but still wet and shiny in the middle, it’s done. Take off the heat and sprinkle with more grated cheese if you wish.
