Blue Collar Breakfast - Scrambled eggs, and Salami

Hey, have you ever been sitting around wishing that you had a tasty savory breakfast? One that could be done real quickly, and not make to much of  mess?  After seeing a friends post about  bacon, I was yearning for something salty and savory myself.

Rather then thaw out a pound of bacon, I opted for something a little different. Hard Salami.  Yup.  Cooked and crispy salami, and crispy cheese.  I was only cooking for myself, and didn't really want to make a big mess.

I had some large (circumference wise) sliced salami, so I sliced them up like a pie, so they'd be easier to handle once they were cooked up in the eggs.

Toss the salami in a pan, and let it cook up until it's crispy, I like to flip them over so both sides get cooked and crispified. 

Next grab a hunk of Colby-Jack cheese sliced up. It doesn't have to be exact, as it's only sliced up to make the melting a little easier.  Rather then use milk, I'm going to add some ranch dressing to the eggs, and whip them up. 

Pour the eggs mix into the pan, and evenly toss the cheese in too. As the pan is hot, you'll not want to let it stay like this long, as we're not making an omelet, we're going for scrambled eggs, with a crispy cheesy crispy salami mess.  

Note the golden color to the cheese, as it's gotten crispy. If you've not turned the heat down on this by now, NOW would be a good time.  You might want to let it sit after you've flipped the eggs to get both sides of the mess crispy. 

Slide the mess onto your plate, add some hot sauce if wanted, and enjoy!  

Do you have some quick and simple meal ideas? 

I'd love to hear about them!

Oh Plz! I H8 Twizzlers, they're not Red Vines!

I don't like Twizzlers, and they're not Licorice, and neither are red vines. But I'd take black licorice over Twizzlers.

Then there's the Red Hots vs Hot Tamale's debate... but that's for another day...

Shave the cost of shaving.

I'm sure you've noticed the high cost of razors and blades.  I'm sure that you've also noticed that the razors don't last very long too.  That's due to oxidization of the blades. One easy way to keep the oxidization from happening is to use Vegetable Cooking spray on the blades after you're done, and they've had a few mins to dry. This helps keep the air from the metal and reduces the amount of corrosion.

Simple and nifty, eh?

You got any money saving tips that you'd like to share?

Jupiter and Venus from Earth - GIMPed

Jupiter and Venus from Earth

Just a quick edit of something I read this morning with a nice "space" image to go along with it. Might have something to do with having watched a program about Gene Roddenberry last night. 

I guess the message is:  We must dare to dream, and from those dreams comes reality, and new inventions.
