In Judging Judas, book 3 of my Tarnished Saints Series, sheriff Judas Taylor makes breakfast for his new wife, Laney in order to prove he can make a meal that is half-way healthy and not just junk food. He calls it his Judas Breakfast Sandwich. I’ll let Judas tell you about it himself. Go ahead, Judas.
Judas: Thanks Elizabeth. I’ll tell you, Laney didn’t think I could do it, but I do know how to cook . . . somewhat. I was a bachelor so long that it was more of a burden to cook just for myself, and I’ll admit – I got lazy. Anyway, I made her my Judas Breakfast Sandwich and she really liked it. It’s easy, and here’s how it’s done.
(I don’t measure anything, so I just guess. About a handful of each.)
Some leftover chopped up ham
Zucchini and Red Sweet Pepper – chopped
Put enough olive oil in a pan to cover the bottom and get the oil hot and drop it all in. While it’s cooking, whip up two eggs in a bowl and add a little black pepper.
Mince a large garlic clove and add to the cooking veggies.
Take a little spinach, or Laney likes kale, and chop it up and add it to the whole mixture. It doesn’t need to cook long.
Then drop in your eggs and scramble it all up til it looks done and not runny. Turn off the heat and add some sliced pepperjack cheese atop it and cover the pan so the cheese melts.
In the meantime, toast up an English Muffin. Then place the egg mixture atop a muffin half and add my secret ingredient. Ground up spicy chips of any kind to the top of the sandwich to give it that crunch factor. And there you have it. Even my snack foods can be incorporated into a healthy breakfast dish. Serves two. – Judas ☆
