Scrambled Eggs Special

2013-01-23

One of the most odd and divine scrambles known to man. Consisting of egg, garlic, spinach, and ground beef.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
    5 cloves garlic, minced
    1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
    8 oz. ground chuck
    1 (10-oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry in paper towels
    8 eggs, lightly beaten
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    ΒΌ cup finely grated Parmesan
    Crusty Italian bread, for serving

Method:

Heat oil in a 12″ skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion; cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add chuck; cook, stirring, until browned and all moisture evaporates, about 10 minutes. Add spinach; cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add eggs; cook until eggs are cooked and mixture is slightly dry, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; sprinkle with Parmesan. Serve with bread.

    How do you flip an omelette without turning it into one big burnt scrambled egg mess?
    I just tried and failed miserably.

    Well, not always. I usually find myself enjoying the scrambled eggs that my mom makes instead of my own. I prepare them the same way she does, but they always taste better when she makes them. Why I that?

    I would like to eat scrambled ostrich eggs but would like to know what health impact it might have on me.

    I just boiled green and red cabbage, carrots and added spices to the water and then drained. I added some green peas, scrambled eggs and a dab of butter. It’s actually pretty good!

    Hello. Sometimes when i try to cook scrambled eggs, after i cook then i taste them and sometimes they dont have any flavor so i throw them away.
    The same thing happens sometimes when i try to make over easy eggs.
    So how do you make scrambled and over easy eggs?
    Are you supposed to use butter and do you need some spray so they wont stick too or what?

    Should I have scrambled eggs that have more calories and more fat or special K with low fat yogurt with less calories but more carbs?

    I want to know how much weight you would lose in a week by doing this.
    For breakfast I would usually have a bowl of special k or rice krispies, and sometimes scrambled eggs on toast.
    And for dinner usually vegetables and a meat. I don’t eat after 6.

    How much weight can you lose?

    Please no answers of ‘don’t do it, it’s bad for you’ etc. I’m curious.
    I said I would eat breakfast AND dinner.
    Two meals a day.

    i always eat omlettes and egg scramble, but i want to try something else new done with egg. can you give me some tips on some varieties with simple ingredients?

  13. posted by Agent 47 on Mar 18, 2013

    is that the best way to start losing weight? but why? i usually only have special k for breakfast and a salad for lunch and thats pretty much it and i also drink lots of water? but would it be better to have 6 small meals trhuout the day? and what kinds of food i can eat?

    I do!

    My 6 year old read a whole Goosebumps books from front to back in a weeks time. She’s very proud of herself. :) I know other kids might have been doing that since they were 5 but this is pretty special to us.

    My eldest daughter (11 soon) learned to make mac & cheese all by herself, yesterday. :) The brings the cooking skills up to french toast, scrambled eggs and mac & cheese.

    Share your latest mommy brags!

    I don’t have much in the fridge or in the cupboards, but I’m wondering if there’s some special egg recipe I can make. Just something out of the ordinary since I already had some scrambled eggs this morning.

    I’ve got some cereal if that helps.
    no mushrooms.

    Personally I like to make smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on brown toast served with a glass of orange juice and champagne (although i usually cheat and use sparkling wine – can’t tell the difference with all the orange juice)

    I had it for salads and then didn’t use it. My family isn’t big on spinach, but I don’t want to throw such a healthy food out. Any ideas on how to cook/freeze it and use it later in a way 15,16, and 17 year old boys would enjoy?

  18. posted by rashest_hippo on Mar 21, 2013

    i know all the usually ways boiled, poached, scrambled, fried, omlettes etc.
    what are some different ways?
    preferably healthy ways too.

    like…
    eggs, butter, etc, some things that are “necessary” in cooking of some dishes, what do vegetarians use as substitutes?
    there aren’t any vegetarian stores, or vegetarian sections in stores where i live. i live in texas… you probably won’t find a vegetarian in this entire state, at least not within a 100 mile radius of where i live.

    I’m proud of myself when I get that flip thing just right, and I get a perfect semicircular omlette. But more often than not I don’t have enough eggs, or the egg sticks to the pan and I get horribly malformed Denver omlette. So I put it out of its misery by scrambling it.

    Can I serve it as My Special Scramble or do I fess up?

    I want to cook eggs, but nothing too plain, but I want something different. I like eggs, and can only think to scramble, boil and make fried eggs. Can anyone help me think of another and different way to cook them so that they are delicious? Thank you!

    I like bacon & egg in a fluffy white roll, my sister has scrambled egg with smoked salmon & we both have Bucks Fizz with it.
    Yeah ok, there’s generally chocolate involved too, lol!

    Today my 18 month old son ate some oatmeal with brown sugar and cinnamon with pieces of bananas, a handful of cheerios, and diluted apple juice. He also had his 4 oz of milk.

    What did your toddler eat? I try to get some ideas since this was one of the very few times he didn’t eat his eggs, which he LOVES.
    Oh, I meant that Im trying to wean him from eating eggs everyday… he usually eats nothing BUT eggs in the morning and today he didn’t…finally! lol!

    Ok I know this is kinda a stupid question but i wanna get this right. I have to make a special breakfast tomorrow, but im only 16 so never tried this. You boil a bunch of eggs for how long exactly? Then you cut the eggs up with a knife or something right????
    ok i just looked up a youtube video and realized i was totally wrong. u break 4 eggs. put 2 tbsp of oil in a bowl. then cook.

    I saw it in my friend’s refrigerator last night and it had a specific name but I can’t remember what it is. It comes in a clear bag and the flat bread is brown and filled with a thin layer of a chopped spinach mixture. It was called Spinach ______. I think it may have started with an M and was sort of ethnic sounding.

    Thanks you so much!!

    Okay I’m a 13 year old girl, 5’7 and 128lbs. I wanna lose wieght by dieting and exercise. This is what I did today is it a healthy routine?

    -got 9 hours of sleep
    – breakfast: small bowl of special k with blue berries, almonds and bananas with green tea
    -played voley ball for about an hour a little later
    -lunch: toasted whole wheat sandwich with scrambled egg (mostly egg white) with 2 glasses of milk
    -about an hour of yoga
    -dinner: small bowl of gucamoly and a banana with a glass of water

    So is this healthy? Any more meal ideas? How often should I switch up this diet? Is this dinner big enough? (Small bowl of gucamoly and a banana)?
    All fruit and veg mentioned was fresh btw..

    My fiance and I have been having a hard time. We’ve been forced to go to different universities because we couldn’t find 1 that did the courses we both want to do.

    Anyway, he’s coming to stay with me for a few days next week and I want to cook something really special but I don’t know what.

    The fact that Im a student means that I have a tiny budget too.

    Any help would be great.

    I’m planning for tommorow’s breakfast.

    I want to eat Pancakes and Eggs with Ketchup but do you make your pancakes special in any way or make your eggs special in any way? Thanks :)

  34. posted by Squall Leonhart on Mar 24, 2013

    What kind of special ingredients do you put in there? I like experimenting with my eggs. I just put random stuff in there. A few years ago, I would eat jelly with my eggs and even jelly with cheese eggs! I also tried whipped cream with my eggs. Of course, it melted, but it added a sweet creamy taste. I don’t think I’ve tried it again (Maybe I should…)

    What do you do? Maybe I’ll use some of your ideas.

  35. posted by Sonny on Mar 25, 2013

    I add brown sugar to it now to make it sweeter, but I was wondering what else might go good with it?

    also if anybody knows a special recipe for scrambled eggs too please let me know!

    Thanks!

    okay so basically i have a holiday coming up in about 4 weeks ish (give or take a few days) i need to tone my stomach up. Honestly the rolls i have when i bend my stomach are beyond acceptable for a 14 year old girl. So i know i must diet and i think my current diet is acceptable.
    Breakfast:
    Slice of wholemeal toast.
    Bowl of special K.
    Scrambled egg and toast.
    All of the above with a glass of orange juice and multi-vitamans (i am vegetarian so my mum makes me take them to strengthen my immune system)

    Snack:
    Raisins and dried fruit.
    Carrot sticks.
    A glass of water normally.

    Dinner:
    I normally have like i would have for a snack then, i come home about 2 hours later and have 2 plain rice cakes with humous(however you spell it) and celery sticks.
    Or i’ll have these john west salads (less that 250 calories and then i wont snack in the afternoon either way suits me)

    Tea:
    Salmon and boiled rice (i am willing to eat fish if im feeling paticulary week or my mum feels that i am looking tired or fragile)
    Stir Fry with/without noodles.
    Lasagne.
    Shepherds pie.
    Rissoto.
    Quorn with rice or noodles (My mum makes me eat a minimum amount of carbohydrates)

    i wont snack after 6 o clock because i am aware it stores as unused fat.
    The exercises i do are:
    10 Minutes on Cross Trainer.
    10 Minutes on Bike.
    5 Minutes on Cross Trainer.
    5 Minutes on Bike. Totalling to 30 minutes.

    100 Sit ups.
    3 rounds of 10 second planking.
    3 rounds of 10 leg lifts (when you only let your legs drop an inch about the ground)
    will this help? or if not any suggestions or improvements?

    What kind of rice do you like best ? Can you think of special herbs befitting rice ?

  39. posted by Cupcakerum on Mar 26, 2013

    I don’t mean the small deep fried ones, which is all I could find when searching, but the big ones they cook on stones usually in an outside oven (fogon). Is it the same recipe only a different way of cooking them or do they have another recipe for these types of tortillas? In Panama they usually use a special stone over a fire, can I make them in the oven the same? It’s one of the foods my husband misses the most from his home and I’d really like to surprise him by making him some corn tortillas. Thanks everyone!

    Palak Paneer [PAH-lehk pah-NEER]
    In India, palak means “spinach”; PANIR is a type of fresh, unripened cheese. It’s logical, therefore, that palak panir dishes contain spinach and panir. Such dishes can include various other ingredients and be prepared in many ways. For example, palak panir pulau is a rice dish with spinach, panir, lemon juice and various seasonings like CORIANDER, CAYENNE PEPPER, CUMIN and MUSTARD. Palak panir sak contains finely chopped (sometimes pureed) spinach and chiles along with various seasonings and fried cubes of panir.

    My favorite egg breakfast is called the Hollandaise Special at a cafe here. It’s a bowl with hashbrowns layered underneath fried eggs (over medium) and topped with hollandaise sauce. It’s really rich, but amazing. What’s your favorite?
