My Favorite Breakfast!

One of the reasons that I love Sundays so much is because I do not feel guilty about having a nice breakfast at noon! I love waking up later on Sundays and cooking a nice filling breakfast. A good warm cup of coffee with a filling breakfast always puts a smile on my face and my fiance's!

Anyone who has ever gone out and partied too late, has a favorite greasy food to help them absorb the surplus of alcohol. My friends and I used to go to a Greek diner that was always better at 4am than it was at 4pm :) I always ordered one thing, "The Gypsy Skillet". A skillet filled with sauteed peppers, onions, ham potatoes and smothered in deliciously evil liquid cheese. As if that was not enough, they covered it with two eggs, cooked to your liking, my choice was always over easy.
Yes this was the perfect 4am, after clubbing treat. While, this meal would have had no effect on my weight 5 years ago, now I have to think of it a bit differently. I clearly cut out the liquidy cheese concoction (who knows what's in that anyhow!) and changed two eggs into 1. All in all an extremely delicious breakfast that prepared me for a night of Super Bowl drinking :)

My Gypsy Skillet

*This recipe fed both my fiance and myself, however I did take a much smaller portion for myself, since I am trying to watch my weight. My portion is pictured in the picture below for anyone who is interested.*

3 eggs
1/2 A Large Onion, Chopped
1/2 A Green Pepper, Chopped
1/2 A Red Pepper, Chopped
1 Scallion, Sliced
1/4 Pound Canadian Bacon, Diced
4 Medium Red Potato's, Diced
2 Slices Swiss Cheese
Salt and Pepper
Olive Oil

1. Saute potato in olive oil for ten minutes.
2. Add in onion and peppers. Continue cooking for 10 more minutes.
3. Add Canadian bacon and cook until potatoes are cooked.
4. In another non-stick pan, cook 3 eggs to your liking.
5. Top the veggie skillet with 2 slices of cheese and melt. Top off plate with eggs and take a sip of your coffee! Enjoy!

*Sometimes this is the perfect dinner for me as well!*
