I have tried on multiple occasions to make omletes. I can’t make them. Apparently I’m just not French enough. But, I can however throw a bunch of delicious things into a skillet and add farm fresh eggs. I mean, it all tastes the same in the end…it just doesn’t look very pretty. When I could afford to go to a crossfit gym, I used to make these pork belly scrambles almost every morning, using what ingredients I had on hand. You can add whatever you want based on your dietary needs, but this scramble is packed with macros, omega 3s and can easily be used as a 21 day fix recipe.
Pork Belly Scramble
4-5 ounces pork belly. Baked or Fried until crispy.
1 tablespoon butter
red, green and yellow bell peppers,chopped (Stoplight peppers, for the fancypants who shop at Whole Foods)
1/2 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
Baby bella mushrooms, chopped
1oz Tillamook Medium Cheddar Cheese
Dash of Hot Sauce ALL THE HOT SAUCE YOU CAN HANDLE
Chia, flax or hemp seeds
What do do:
Start off by preparing your pork belly. I usually just fry mine up in a skillet until it is crispy. Or, you can use a broiler. But, it is hot as an armpit outside, so I am not trying to turn on my oven and crank it to 500+ degrees.
Set the prepared pork belly aside, high on the counter, away from bad ass dogs who climb onto said counters to eat your food. (oh wait, that may only be at my house)
Melt the butter in the skillet and add the peppers, onions, mushrooms and garlic. Sautee 2-3 minutes.
Crack yo’ eggs into a bowl, wisk them around until the yolks are broken and you have a bowl off yellow. Yes, yellow. DESCRIPTIVE WORDS!
Add the bowl of yellow to your sauteed stuff.
If you are a culinary god, now is the time to turn this into an omelet. If you aren’t a culinary god, now is the time to add your cheese and scramble the shit out of this mixture until it is cooked.
Once it is ready, remove it from the pan, put it on a plate and sprinkle it with chia, flax or hemp seeds to get your omega 3 fix. At this point, I dump about half a bottle of Trader Joes’s Green Dragon sauce on top. You could just use salsa, or even ketchup. But I like to live dangerously.
It isn’t the prettiest meal, but it is tasty. And that folks, is all that really matters.
