Doctors and nutritionists tell us breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And we diabetics must never skip breakfast! Looking for something different? Give this recipe a try.
6 large eggs, beaten
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup chopped canned green chili peppers
1 tsp minced dried onion
couple splashes bottled hot sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 tbsp butter
3/4 cup shredded Mexi-Blend cheese
1 tomato, cut into wedges
In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk, chili peppers, onion, hot sauce, and salt; allow to stand for 1 minute. In a 10-inch skillet, melt the butter. Add the egg mixture to the skillet. Cook without stirring until the mixture begins to set. Lift and fold the partially cooked eggs with a spatula so the uncooked portion flows underneath. Stir in half the cheese. Cook 5 to 6 minutes more or until eggs are completely cooked. Serve on a bed of shredded lettuce topped with the remaining cheese and tomato wedges.
Yield: 4 servings
WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD
I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you!
