Ingredients
  

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 large red bell peppers diced
  • 1 cup pepperoni pcs diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes or 10-15 pcs sliced into half
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese optional
  • salt & pepper to taste.
  • 3 tbsp miracle whip or mayo or 1/4 cup heavy cream / half& half
  • 1/4 tsp crushed pepper optional

Instructions
 

  • Whisk together eggs, whip/mayo/cream, pepper in a bowl. Add tomatoes and set aside
  • In a medium size non-stick pan, add the olive oil and saute onions until translucent.
  • Add pepperoni and bell pepper and saute for an additional 3 min
  • Pour eggs on top. Allow cooking without touching for 30-45 seconds. .
  • Using a spatula, push the eggs toward the centre letting the uncooked part flow into the pan.
  • Do this until most of it is cooked, about 2-3 min.
  • Once it sets, add cheese, reduce heat to low, and cover pan. Taste and adjust salt if needed
  • Serve and enjoy once the cheese melts.

Notes

  • Very simple and easy breakfast option that you can easily play around with. In addition to pepperoni, you can add shredded or diced cooked chicken, ground meat (beef or pork), bacon, or chopped ham.
  • You can add vegetables such as sautéed spinach, mushrooms sautéed in butter, or hash browns for a complete meal. 
  • I highly recommend miracle whip for this recipe, it gives it a distinct sweet and savoury taste. If using whip or mayo, be cautious when adding salt. Add salt once the dish is cooked to avoid over salting. 
  • Serve with a side of avocado or toasted buttered bread.
