recipe. man eggs.

the most requested breakfast item in our house (besides blueberry pancakes), would have to be what we aptly refer to as man eggs. the first time i made man eggs, chris and i were sitting at our kitchen table, and our conversation went a little something like this...

chris-why do these eggs taste like bacon?
me-they don't taste like bacon, they taste like smoked gouda.
chris-no they don't, they taste like bacon.
me-is that a bad thing?
chris-no! bacon is manly.

and that's how man eggs got their start.

here's to a happy husband and his eggs.
the recipe (serves two)

4 eggs
1/4 c shredded smoked gouda (plus a little more to sprinkle on top)
1tbsp butter
2 tbsp milk
salt and pepper

melt butter in a small pan over medium-low heat. while the butter is melting, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl. poor eggs into the pan and stir frequently (the key to good scrambled eggs is cooking them low and slow). when eggs are almost done, add the cheese and stir until eggs have finished cooking.

sprinkle the the eggs with the remaining cheese and more black pepper, then serve.

{it's basically scrambled eggs with a bit of a kick}

happy wednesday! {monica}
