Egg Basics (pickling, scrambled, etc.)

Shake & Scramble


2 eggs
2 tbsp (30 mL) milk
1/4 cup (50 mL) finely chopped smoked turkey or ham
1/4 cup (50 mL) finely chopped green or red pepper, or cooked vegetables
1/4 cup (50 mL) shredded Cheddar or Colby cheese
Cooking spray


Combine ingredients in a container with a tight fitting lid; cover and shake together until well mixed. Lightly spray a skillet with cooking spray. Add egg mixture. Scramble over medium heat.

Makes 1 serving.

To microwave: Shake ingredients in a microwaveable container; cover loosely. Microwave on Medium-High (70%) 1 to 1½ minutes; stir around outside edge to move cooked eggs towards the center. Return to microwave and cook 15 to 30 seconds longer. (Eggs should still look a little moist.) Cover and let stand 30 seconds.

Tip: Prepare fixings in separate airtight microwaveable containers the night before, with each family member's choice of meat, vegetable and cheese. Cover and refrigerate.

Suggestions for Complete Meal: Serve with whole wheat toast and a glass of grapefruit juice.
