Breakfast in five!

So my better half came home on his way back from work. So I made him breakfast in five mins... as part of a series of Quick 'n Easy recipes on my blog, I'm here to provide this too.

Scrambled Eggs on Toast :

Ingredients :

5 eggs
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Cream- 2 tablespoons
Skim Milk - 1/4th cup

Method :

Use a non stick pan.
heat pan first
add small amounts of butter.
let butter fizz and bubbles form.
meanwhile you should have popped bread into the toaster.
And begin beating the eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl with a fork.
When the butter is hot and eggs are beaten , add the eggs to the pan.
watch the base of the eggs. When they start solidifying, push the eggs from the edge to the centre in a straight motion. keep pushing eggs this way. when they are half cooked, add the cream, push eggs around again and then add the milk. let cook on low-medium flame.
by now the bread should have popped out, cut, spread butter.
Add the slightly moist or dry now [as per your taste[ on top of the bread and sprinkle pepper and serve~!
Tastes best with piping hot coffee :)

sadly this delicious and quick option is no longer viable for me, as the spouse has been diagnosed with high BP and Cholesterol. Sigh...

@Sucharita : Thats not true. there are some changes u can make to allow ur husband to have this dish. I'm a doctor so trust me :

-use only olive oil.
-only egg whites.
-skim milk instead of cream.
-whole grain/multi grain bread.

just replace the options in this. Trust me it tastes good and is healthy too. no need to deprive oneself. just eat healthier. I too don't allow my better half to eat egg yolks/butter. Except sometimes when i pamper him!
