One of my favourite easy and healthy breakfasts is any veggie, a little onion, scrambled eggs and hot sauce. My favourite veggie to throw into this combo is zucchini. It’s a crunchy-in-parts, soft-in-others texture, and tastes incredible mixed with eggs and topped with hot sauce. (PS have you seen Beyoncé’s new music video?? #igothotsauceinmybagswag – instant classic)
I made a little video on Snapchat (@sophiecaldwellc) so I thought I would share it here so you can make it too. It’s dead easy and almost embarrassing to write a recipe for, but I swear it’s delicious and can totally change your breakfast game! I spend 25% of my time when I’m home making cooking videos on Snapchat, so if you don’t want to see that do not follow me! Ha!
Easy Zucchini Scramble
Serves 1 because Peter had chocolate chip muffins (life is unfair). You can easily scale up for a big group.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small zucchini, sliced thinly
1/6 white onion, sliced thinly
pinch of salt and pepper
2 eggs Cholula hot sauce to taste (my favourite hot sauce for eggs and fish tacos) Maldon sea salt to taste (the best salt in the entire world and will change your life trust me)
1) Heat pan over medium heat with olive oil.
2) When hot, add veggies.
3) Add pinch of salt and pepper. Cook veggies until soft.
4) Add eggs directly in pan, scrambling as they heat up.
5) As soon as they’re scrambled, turn the pan off.
6) Top with hot sauce and Maldon.
Hey Y’all! Happy #WineWednesday. You know it’s my favourite day of the week. While I won’t be indulging tonight (I’m getting over a cold), I did want to share the wines that I chose for mine and Gilian’sThink Pink Brunch hosted on Camille Styles. Being brunch, it’s really nice to keep things light and fresh. Instead of doing a full pairing menu with each food, I wanted to start with a mimosa (recipe below) and move to rosé throughout the meal. I wanted a pink mimosa, so I tried grapefruit juice instead of orange. I absolutely loved the result! It was more refreshing, a little less sweet, and my new go to brunch drink!
To make the mimosa, fill the glass with prosecco ¾ of the way and top with the juice you desire. Grapefruit is a great alternative to orange and keeps you refreshed.
For the rosé, I wanted something punch in colour, and bold in taste to go with the smoked salmon bites. I found the perfect match in Olivares Jumilla Rose. At $12.99, this wine is a STEAL and a half. Bold flavours like strawberry round out this refreshing sipper, and I wouldn’t hesitate to serve it at night time either.
I wanted to keep the glassware simple and elegant. Gillian found those gorgeous hot pink cups, so we decided to play with the heights of the glasses by using my super tall Champagne glasses for the mimosa, and a geometric white wine glass for the rosé. I truly believe the glassware you drink your beverages of can have a huge impact on the taste of your wine.
Cheers to #WineWednesday! Don’t forget to read the full feature on Camille Styles.
