The 2012 Summer Olympics opened on Friday, July 27 in London, England. As I write this post I am very proud to announce that Canada has won a total of four medals. Way to go! The Olympics are special so I have been making a few dishes to celebrate them. I checked out Life Made Delicious for Olympic recipes. There are a couple of recipes there that I am planning on trying as soon as I get a chance. Right now I am in full home canning mode which means little time for cooking but also means lots of great produce on hand. I was slicing up red peppers the other day and came up with a breakfast idea supporting our Canadian athletes.
This is a very easy breakfast to make. I place two red pepper rings in a ceramic coated fry pan on medium heat. Then I cracked an egg into each ring. Once the egg white started to cook, I placed a lid on the pan and let the eggs cook until just set. I garnished with a little Spanish paprika for flavour. This protein rich breakfast was served with side bacon, whole grain toast, homemade yogurt topped with crumbled General Mills Whole Grain Oatmeal Crisp Triple Berry Cereal and blueberries (not pictured), and extra pulp orange juice.
Aside of being a high protein breakfast, I tried to work in healthy fiber. The cereal is one of three cereals in General Mills new Green Banner Campaign. The other two cereals are our all time favourites, Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios. These boxes now sport a green banner to let you know that oat fibre helps lower cholesterol. It's all part of healthy eating. Cheers to our Canadian athletes!
