A little refrigerator-diving yesterday morning resulted in this pretty thing. I call it a “California Scramble” because it reminds me of a dish that was served at an LA haunt of mine, The Griddle, and because…I don’t know, it seems fresh and light and at least respectably healthy, what with the avocado and tomato and all.
CALIFORNIA SCRAMBLE (serves 2)
What you need:
1/2 onion, finely diced
5 large eggs
Splash of milk
2 tbsp butter
1 tomato, diced
1/2 ball fresh mozzarella, diced
1/4 avocado, diced
Salt & pepper
What you do:
1. Heat a little olive oil and saute the onions until just translucent. Set aside.
2. Whisk together the eggs and milk in a small bowl.
3. Heat the butter in a frying pan until foaming (be generous with your butter; this is a more-is-better situation) and then add the eggs and scramble while they cook so they’re nice and fluffy.
4. Toss in the onion, tomato, mozzarella, and avocado, season to taste, and serve.
