On Sunday morning John and I were watching Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations.
We’d been out the night before, and since our dinner was over an hour late to be served, the waiter gave me an extra two free glasses of wine. Needless to say, I slept like a baby, and woke up 13 hours later hungry and watching Food TV.
I love Anthony Bourdain. The man knows food. As we watched him hit up the best hot dogs, deep dish pizza and smoked fish in Chicago I started craving some comfort food myself.
I stood up and proclaimed “I need to make a fried egg served on top of a tortilla with hot sauce and avocado!”
The slice of cheese was John’s added genius. It would probably smarter and prettier to grate it or melt it, but we were rolling with the punches.
I heated up some leftover slow cooked shredded chicken to his, and he was pretty happy about it.
Even though we used fried egg I’d say this breakfast is a great take on healthy comfort food. It sure as hell was comforting. We also used a small tortilla, one egg, and no extra grease other than the oil for the egg, so it beats out any diner breakfast in a heartbeat.
Making your favourite comfort dishes in a smaller portion and add in more fresh ingredients is a great way to make it healthier. Especially if it’s this delicious in the end.
And if you’re wondering, yes, I do have a hot sauce problem.
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Small tortilla
- ¼ avocado
- Baby tomatoes
- Cheese (optional)
- Hot sauce (I recommend Valentinas)
- Heat up your pan on high with olive oil
- Warm your tortilla in the oven or microwave
- Decorate the plate with tomato, corn and avocado
- Fry your egg, add it on top of your tortilla, add cheese and hot sauce and enjoy!
