Pig and Veggie Omelette

pig omelette

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love savory things. I prefer eggs and bacon to pancakes any day. I love eggs! They can be added to most any meal for that extra kick of protein. Their versatility is vast. My favorite thing to do with eggs? Why make an omelette of course! Here are some basic steps to making an omelette and, if all else fails, it can become a scramble.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbs butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs milk
  • salt and pepper

To do:

  1. Heat a pan with the butter on medium heat.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, s&p. Whisk it well! You want this to have some fluff.
  3. Gently pour the eggs into the pan and spread out.
  4. Let it “set”. You want to allow the eggs to cook, but not turn brown. Bubbles will form under the surface. This will tell you that you can:
  5. Gently nudge the eggs with a spatula. Allow the top runny egg get underneath to cook. This will kind of look like a giant egg pancake.
  6. Next, flip it! I use a wide spatula for this because I still suck at this part.
  7. Add your innards to one side! And carefully fold the egg pancake in half. Let it cook for another minute or so. A tip: I sometimes cover the pan but allow a vent for the steam to escape through.
  8. Eat it!

For this to be the pig omelette:

  • bacon, cut and cooked about 2 strips to 2 eggs.
  • Diced bell pepper and onion to equal a 1/4 cup sauteed
  • chopped deli ham, I’m resourceful and if we have that, I add it!
  • I add 1 tsp hot sauce to the eggs while whisking for a kick.
  • shredded cheese! As much as your heart wants. I had cheddar and topped with smoked Gouda.

Don’t stop yourself there, what other things are good to put in your omelette? Crispy hashbrowns? Maybe try a caprese omelette with roasted cherry tomatoes, mozz, and basil?

Pulled Porkin’ It

pulled pork

So tender, juicy, sweet with a hint of heat…

Why I love making pulled pork: 1. It is super simple and can easily be thrown in the crock pot 2. We can have it a million different ways. 3. I especially love this for game days. 4. You can also premake a large batch, separate it into ziplock freezer bags, freeze em and pull them out as you please.

Tonight we will be making a pulled pork sandwich topped with coleslaw. Other nights, this is amazing on top of homemade mac n cheese. It’s amazing in a tortilla with melted cheese and sauteed onions…

INGREDIENTS

  • 2ish pounds of pork tenderloin
  • 1/4c chicken stock
  • 1/4c apple cider vinegar
  • 2 c bbq sauce (I love sweet baby rays) A honey or brown sugar kind is best, divided
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix together the chicken stock, apple cider vinegar and one cup of bbq sauce.
  2. Mix together your spices.
  3. Place the pork into your crock pot and rub the meat with the seasoning mix.
  4.  Make slits across the pork, about halfway through to allow the sauces to penetrate.
  5. Add the sauce.
  6. Set to High for about 5 hours.
  7. Shred the meat and place back into the crockpot.
  8. Stir in the remaining bbq sauce and let the meat sit on a low or warm setting for 20 minutes so it can take in the flavors.

Take a bite!
