This is a delightful protein packed breakfast to start and nourish your day. Pair it with a slice or two of bread, or replace the bread with one or two slices of boiled yam or a couple wedges of boiled or fried plantain for a gluten free option.
Whatever way you choose to have this meal, it is delicious, easy to make and fills you up until lunch time.
Ingredients are usually few and simple, chopped onion, tomato and peppers with a sprinkle of salt to taste. However you could make them very elaborate as well.
When I was growing up it was not unusual to see people add a bit of mash sardines or corn beef to the whisked eggs before frying. Some people love these flavours while others cannot stand these additions but the ball is in your court twick this recipe to suit your palate or leave it as it is. No right or wrong way of doing it as long as you enjoy your meal. Bon appetite
Sometimes the eggs are cooked in tomato stew with a bit more sauce especially for eating yam in which case the tomatoes and peppers are usually blended and you use a bit more then, fried as above. Instead of two medium tomatoes you could use say five and two large bell peppers. When this is done this way, you have enough juice to soak up the yam.
