Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Sparkling Wine are great choices for Omelet. Even if you aren't making mimosas, sparkling wine is great with eggs for two reasons. One, if you're eating eggs early in the day, sparkling wine has less alcohol. Secondly, it cleanses the palate, which is important since yolk is known to coat the palate. The Shingleback Black Bubbles Sparkling Shiraz with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 23 dollars per bottle.

Shingleback Black Bubbles Sparkling Shiraz

Deep garnet in color with vibrant magenta bubbles. Aromas of concentrated blackcurrant with hints of licorice, spice and dark cherries. Creamy bubbles and luscious sweetness envelop the plump blackberry mid-palate, which is enhanced with hints of savory development. The long sweet fruit finish is balanced with fine tannin and acidity. This is a non-vintage wine blended from a number of years of Shiraz to create complexity and consistency in the style.

Instructions

In a medium-heated large skillet, add a little oil and thoroughly cook the meat and potatoes along with soy sauce, garlic and onions. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine cooled meat mixture with the eggs, tomatoes, cilantro and scallions. Season with salt & pepper and whisk until evenly incorporated. In the same skillet in medium heat, ladle just enough to form a thin pancake-size patty, one batch at a time. Cook both sides, flipping over after 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to over brown the eggs. Transfer to a plate, cut in wedges (for bite-size servings) and garnish with cilantro leaves, if you want.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • You can choose lean ground beef or switch to ground turkey or ground bison if you prefer less fatty meat.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

Price Tips

  • The price of ground beef is going up. Beans and lentils, on the other hand, are both cheap and filling. Depending on the recipe, you might be able to add beans or lentils to stretch out your beef.

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

  • Make sure you cook ground meat thoroughly. Grinding meat creates a lot of surface area that bacteria can grow on, so eating undercooked ground meat poses a real health risk.

Green Tips

  • Choose organic, grassfed beef whenever possible. If you're worried about your grocery budget, try eating a few vegetarian meals so you can afford better meat!
