  2. Add butter to pan wait for it to melt then add the egg. While the egg is cooking spoon the melted butter from the pan on top of the egg until done
  3. Add buns to same pan to toast and warm slightly
  4. To build the sandwich put bottom half of bun on plate followed by the cheese, ham, egg, sliced avocado, pepper. Optionally you can add the tomato and or hot sauce.

Smoked Paprika my new favorite spice!

Smoked Paprika - Yum!

Smoked Paprika – Yum!

Last night was one of those nights where I just did not know what I wanted for dinner. I walked around the kitchen looking in the cabinet then the freezer then the refrigerator then back to the cabinet starting the cycle over again.  Then something caught my eye, Smoked Paprika. I have been meaning to try this for quite sometime now. It was getting late so I did not have much time to make anything that was time consuming and I knew eggs could be fast.

Smoked Paprika had to go well on soft-boiled eggs but there is only one way to find out and that’s to try it of course. Soft-boiled eggs are easy to cook only requiring a pot with water that covers about half way up the eggs then boil with the lid on for 6 1/2 minutes. When times up fill the pot with cold water and let sit a few minutes letting the eggs cool so you can handle them and they will be easier to peel. Peel on a paper towel but be careful as these are soft-boiled after all and you don’t want to lose that golden goodness before you plate it.

As for building I went simple by just toasting wheat bread then topping with american cheese followed by the soft-boiled egg splitting it. Spice it up with a dash of kosher salt and of course the Smoked Paprika.

This was an amazing tasting dish! Smoked Paprika is now my favorite! If you have not tried Smoked Paprika before you HAVE to try it!

Quick Breakfast Taco

I found a Southwest-Inspired Corn & Black Bean blend at the store which got me thinking that this would go great with tacos.  I was thinking breakfast tacos but I wanted this for dinner so I went with a spicier flavor.

This is an easy meal and only requires a few ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • Southwest-Inspired Corn & Black Bean blend – of course this
  • Tortilla – homemade or store bought but of course homemade are so much better (but that will be another post)
  • Cooked bacon
  • A pinch of grated cheese of your choice
  • 1 egg per tortilla

While doing the steps below start cooking the Southwest-Inspired Corn & Black Bean blend.

Cook the egg. What I found best for this recipe is a lightly scrabbled egg. Crack the egg and put is on the skillet as you would if you are going to prepare a fried egg. Cook until the white of the egg is nearly cooked  then scramble the egg on the pan. Remove the egg while it is still light and fluffy.

Now you have to warm up the tortillas or they will just break apart when you try to build and eat them. A quick and easy way is to use the warm pan you just cooked the eggs in. Warm each side of the tortilla for about 30 seconds each side and when side 2 is up put the cheese on the tortilla while still in the pan to start melting it.

Now for the building stage. Remove the cheese topped tortilla from the pan and put it on your serving plate. Add the egg followed by the  Southwest blend and finally the slice of bacon. Now wrap it up and add the side of choice if desired.

And the final result with a side of smashed potatoes. This was very tasty!
