Home Assignment #1

Hi there!  I always find breakfast to be an easy meal to whip up without having to buy extra ingredients since we always have eggs.

Ingredients (change quantities to suit your needs)

  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Red/orange sweet peppers
  • Onion

Step 1: We haven’t used our eggs in a while so I had to make sure they were still good.  I heard that if your eggs don’t float in a bowl of water, they’re still good.  I tested them out and they didn’t float!  Everyone is still in good health several days later so I’d agree with the results of the test.

Step 2: Put eggs in bowl with salt, pepper and a splash of milk and whisk away.  I used 6 eggs, but you could easily change the quantities to whatever suits your fancy.

Step 3: Cut garlic, sweet peppers and onion into small pieces that won’t since to the bottom of your egg mixture.


Step 4: Mix vegetables in with egg mixture.

Step 5: Grease muffin tin and put egg mixture in muffin tin.  I only filled them about 3/4 full so it wouldn’t overflow when cooked.


Step 6: Bake in oven on 350 for 20 minutes.

Step 7: Take your egg bake out of the muffin tins.  I put seaweed around a couple of the egg bakes, but they just got soggy from the moisture in the eggs so I wouldn’t recommend it.

Step 8: Make a fun design with what you have!

    Gotta love eggs – the perfect food! They pair well with so many vegetables, and the combination of onions, mushrooms, pepper, and garlic is particularly tasty.
    I’m wondering if you had a chance to reflect on the other part of the assignment – meal planning and the status of your pantry…
    What was your second recipe?
    Thanks for the post!

      Meal planning for us is usually pretty spontaneous which often times leads to eating out or making a pizza. When grocery shopping, we often buy staples of a main meal (ground beef, chicken, pork loin, etc.), but don’t have a lot of options for sides.

      This week, we had the right foods to prepare what I wanted, but we usually don’t have as much produce since we don’t cook a lot. I think going forward, we’re going to have more produce since it was actually pretty easy to whip a meal together when we had it.

      Going forward, I would like to learn more about healthy sides I could make.

      Not always, but we almost always have it. I usually use it to make spam musubi which is basically a giant sushi roll with spam instead of fish. My family is Hawaiian and my grandma taught me how to make it when I was little.

      I would be curious to know what else I could use the seaweed for though. We have plenty of it.
