Crispy Breakfast Egg Rolls

Crispy Breakfast Egg Rolls 

Try these for a fast and fun breakfast.

In a small bowl mix 1 tablespoon flour with 2 tablespoons cold water. Stir until combined.
Add 2 eggs, 1 spoonful sugar, a pinch of salt, and couple drops of soy sauce. Stir until it's combined.
Over medium heat lightly butter a nonstick pan and pour out a small amount of the egg mixture. Twirl the egg around until it is one layer. Cook for 30 seconds. 
Once the edges of the egg star to pull away from the pan, gently slide your spatula under and flip it over. 
Cook for another 30 seconds.
Flip over and cook for 15 seconds moving around any air bubbles that may appear. (They are a good thing.)
Flip over again, sprinkle with a little shredded cheese and bacon bits, making sure to get some of the cheese on the pan so it crisps up.
Remove, place on plate and roll up, starting at one end and wrapping tightly.
(For a real treat, spread with crab dip instead of cheese and bacon, we like the Blue Crab dip from Costco)

Enjoy, you've cooked well.

Super Bowl Ideas 2012

The Super Bowl is the second biggest eating day of the year in America (the first is Thanksgiving). So if you're looking for some quick ideas to feed your crew, here are two - Little Shrimp Cups and Pork Stuffed Corn Muffins.

Little Shrimp Cups

What you'll need:
1 bag of Tostitos Scoops
sour cream
1/2 lb little shrimp peeled
Seasoned salt like Lawry's or Thai Seasoning
Shredded cheese

Lightly fry the shrimp over medium heat lightly sprinkling with your seasoned salt.
Put a couple scoops of sour cream in a plastic sandwich bag. Cut a small corner off the bag to make a makeshift pastry bag. Squeeze a little sour cream in to the bottom of each Scoop.

 Then add a few of the little shrimp.

Sprinkle with a little shredded cheese and then place under the broiler until the cheese just melts.

 Serve and root against the Patriots.

 Pork Stuffed Corn Muffins

This idea I got from my friend Chef John at

What you'll need:
Barbecued Pork from your favorite BBQ joint.
Jiffy Corn muffin mix

Mix the Jiffy corn muffin mis according the box directions.
In a greased muffin pan pour 1/2 inch of Jiffy corn muffin mix into each cup.
Then add a generous scoop of BBQ Pork
Cover the rest of the way with the Jiffy Corn Muffin mix.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Serve and root against the Patriots.
