Cold Weather Breakfast to Warm the Heart

Scrambled eggs with kale chips, hot sauce and lots of coffee
It's 20F out this morning (10F in Houghton), one of this year's colder days.  I wanted something warm and spicy this morning knowing that I was going out to run hills near our house in a few hours. 

This is breakfast for 3 - so 6 eggs and a slice of Velveta,  a cheese food product.  No telling what that is but it sure tastes good with eggs.  I whisk the eggs in a small bowl using a fork and a splash of water until thoroughly combined.  Heat a pan over medium-high heat with a bit of olive oil.  Pour in eggs, lay cheese pieces on top and don't be in a hurry to disturb the mixture.  Let it cook for a minute or 2.

coming along nicely
I don't continuously stir my scrambled eggs, which makes them crumbly, I prefer mine more omelet style.  Turn over big chunks with a spatula which gives it a nice crispy crust. 

Notice the size, 12 ounces...we go through this pretty quickly
coffee - drink it all morning, then switch to green tea, and finally water by dinner
Off to start the day.
