Scrambled Eggs and Mushrooms on Toast

Apologies all! I know this is not the perfect way to start a post but I had to tell anyway. I am so late on my posting schedule that I have to ask you to be patient and please do keep coming back.

I remember telling you before that our family is relocating to Brazil on coming June. This is proving to be a much bigger task that I ever imagined and my days are consumed between work, parenting and making lists and lists of everything that I have to organize or do before we go. Seems that my days don’t have enough hours and I find myself going to be really late every evening and of course waking up exhausted.

Anyway, it is all for the good of the family and I am in piece with this decision and really excited as well to be reunited with my family after 12 years. I just imagined (probably in my dreams) that I would be able to go thru this phase unshaken and in a more pragmatic way.

I can’t start to describe how much I am looking forward to weekends to have some extra sleeping time, cook and meet some friends. This past weekend though was spent running errands that I couldn’t delay anymore.

So when Sunday morning came and I realized time was slipping thru my fingers I decided I needed to treat myself with one of my favorite breakfast recipes: scrambled eggs and mushrooms on toast. What an indulgence!

I don’t cook this recipe very often because I am the only one who likes it in our home. So it is what I usually chose when I want to say: I need some time for myself please!!!!

Hope you like it. Takes around 10 minutes to prepare/cook however the time can vary a lot depending on how sleep you are when you reach the kitchen.

Scrambled Eggs and Mushrooms on Toast
Serves two.

2 eggs
2 egg whites
100g of white button mushrooms
½ cup of chopped onions
1 table spoon of olive oil
Salt and black pepper
2 slices of bread

Start cleaning and chopping the mushrooms. Next chop the onions.
Add the olive oil to a skillet and sauté the onions until brown. Add the mushrooms, the salt and pepper and cook for about 5 minutes in medium heat.

In a medium bowl, add the two eggs and the egg whites and mix them well. Transfer the eggs to a non-stick skillet and cook them in medium heat. The secret for good scrambled eggs is that you need to move them around the pan to avoid sticking to the bottom. Be careful to not overcook them otherwise you will end up with dry scrambled eggs.

Prepare the two toasts and top them with a layer of mushrooms and add the scrambled eggs on top.

In case you want to watch a video on how to prepare scrambled eggs this is a good one. The ingredients are a bit different but the technique is the same.
