Isn’t this gorgeous? It tasted just as good!!!
Last night was the Tenth Anniversary of the opening of the Cochise Oncology Clinic here. Little did we expect as we watched it being built that we would be going there on a regular basis in just a few years. It was wonderful to see so many survivors, and the real happiness that exuded from the staff that we have come to know and love.
It was a really big “do”, with the Mayor of our town presenting a plaque to the founder of the clinic. There were mounds of very nicely presented food of all kinds, but one of us is not keen on eating food that is out where others have (or could have) touched or breathed on it.
We had a bit of one of our usual ham and cheese on sourdough snacks before we left, but when we came home, we were famished. Time was of the essence, so I whipped up this delightful dish. The appearance cannot even come close to how delicious it was in the eating.
I knew I didn’t want to make a fold-over omelette because there was so much in the way of toppings that I had planned to put on/in it, so the idea of making it like a pizza was born. So, I just poured the eggs/cream/seasoning mixture in the pan I had dry-fried the mushrooms in, using a bit of ghee as a buffer between the eggs and the hot pan.
As the top began to cook solid, I quickly put on the toppings (listed below), covered it and let the cheese melt. The picture above was taken before all of the cheese had melted.
We cut it into quarters and dove in. There is a little over a quarter left, so that will be a good lunch for one of us today or tomorrow.
Three large duck eggs, with a splash of 1/2 and 1/2, ground mild chile powder, Montreal steak seasoning, and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning.
Black Olives, tomato salsa, red pepper salsa (homemade), cooked bacon, leftover ham bits, chopped red onions, dry-fried mushroom slices, leftover cooked broccoli, and two slices of Cheddar/Jack sliced cheese.
Clearly any leftover veggies or bits of meat could find a home here. If you wanted a bit more of a “pizza” ambience, hot Italian sausage and anchovies would work well. Drag out what you have put aside from other meals and surprise yourself with what a delicious meal can be had – quickly and economically.
Since there is no crust as such on this dish, you might want to add some nice whole wheat toast, or a crisped-up tortilla.
If mealtime rolls around and getting into the car to go somewhere is not at all appealing . . . this is a good way to use up what you have, while enjoying a fantastic taste treat that is quick to prepare and so satisfying to eat.
Try it! ;->
