This past weekend, I spent 24 hours cooking video game-themed food while my friends and I played video games for Extra Life. The first dish I made, at 9am that morning, was a Yoshi Egg Scramble with applewood bacon and apples on the side. It was healthy, delicious, and gave us all the energy to keep going!
Yoshi Egg Scramble
Ingredients (to feed 5):
- 4 pieces of applewood bacon
- 1 TBS olive oil
- 6 mushrooms
- 10 eggs
- 1/2 TBS milk or water (optional)
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Additional bacon and/or apples for the side
Begin by cooking the bacon. I prefer to use the microwave (it leaves the stovetop available for the other items). To make bacon in the microwave, place some paper towels on a plate and lay the bacon strips over the paper towels. Cover with a paper towel and microwave for 4 minutes. Remove the bacon and let cool with a new paper towel on top to soak up a bit more grease.
While the bacon is cooling, start heating a pan on the stove with a bit of olive oil in it.
Chop the cleaned mushrooms up into small pieces, place in pan.
Chop the cooled bacon into small pieces, set aside.
Crack the eggs into a bowl and add 1/2 TBS of milk or water to the eggs. Whisk until the eggs are blended.
Add the shredded mozzarella to the bowl of whisked eggs, mix. Put the mixture into the pan.
Add the bacon pieces to the mixture in the pan. Add salt and pepper to taste.
As the egg mixture solidifies, move it around the pan and “scramble” it up. The eggs are done when they are no longer runny.
Serve with apple slices or additional pieces of bacon. Enjoy!
