I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and avocados weren't exactly on our shopping list or in our grocery stores.  But when I married a Californian, they became an essential item at our house.  And I became more acquinted with Mexican food!  (The closest we had in Washington was Taco Time.  Sad, I know.)

But our children grew up with lots and lots of avocados, and we use them in so many dishes.  

Here is One of Our Favorite Breakfasts, Featuring Avocados!

Eggs with Everything

Creative name, right?


Our daughters spent a lot of years in gymnastics, and meet days always required a favorite breakfast.  Our youngest daughter always requested this one because it tastes wonderful and is filling, but never felt heavy.  She called this her lucky breakfast!

You'll Need:

Chop First, Then Cook

First, chop your vegetables.  Set the tomato, avocado, and cilantro aside.  Shred the cheeses and set aside.

Now You Can Start to Cook

If you are using bacon, fry it until it is almost crisp, and then drain off the fat.

Add the onion, peppers, mushrooms and jalepeno to the pan, and fry until tender.
