My best friend Dante ordered the huevos rancheros, and it was pretty awesome. (Photo by Dante)
This morning, when we got up for breakfast, I decided I would try and replicate the dish with what ingredients I could find in the kitchen. I had:
- King Sue luncheon meat (frozen)
- mushrooms (canned)
- tomato (one single tomato!)
- homemade pesto
- Red Hot Dutch cheese
In olive oil, I sauteed the garlic and the mushrooms, then added the meat. I let that simmer for a few minutes before adding the tomato and a dash of pesto for flavor. Then I turned the flame down really low and added the eggs and the cheese. I covered the pan and let it cook for about a minute, so the egg white cooked a little.
When it was ready, I brought the entire pan to the table, and Oneal and I had for breakfast with rice. There was enough to feed us both! And it was perfect with Sriracha!
Then I Googled the recipe for huevos rancheros, and it turns out what Dante ordered and what I cooked were nothing like huevos rancheros! Whatever, it tasted pretty good!
Next time I’ll try to cook real huevos rancheros, hahaha.
