My dad (aka “the original dude”) is all about presentation.  I guess thats probably really good for a food blog, considering the tremendous feedback that was given on Facebook about this breakfast and the dinner the night before.

Breakfast is easy to overlook when you’re at home, trying to get to work.  Muffins or cereal are super easy and quick.  However, on the weekend and if your family is in town, take a few minutes and prepare something for them.

The ingredients are easy:

  • Eggs
  • Onions
  • Scallions
  • Capers
  • Meat or Bread for the side.


Chop onions.  Drain capers.  Chop scallions from the white up towards the green stem, leaving some stems for plating.

To make it:

Olive oil, salt and pepper in a pan on medium-high heat for a few minutes.  Add the onions because they take the longest and we want them soft from cooking.  After a few minutes the onions will start to brown.  While you’re waiting, mix 1-2 eggs per person in a mixing bowl.  You can make the eggs a little fluffier by adding milk to this mix.  Also add a pinch of salt and pepper. Now pour the eggs into the already hot pan with the onions.  Keep the eggs moving a bit, just like a scramble.  Now, add your capers.  Capers are strong, so add to taste (but at least add a tablespoon’s worth!).  Add a few chopped scallions.  Keep the eggs moving around until they’re firm enough to your liking.  Remove from the heat and plate.

Plating like a boss.

Dad did this like you see above.  Plate the eggs.  Then add a “schmear” of BBQ sauce.  Place a scallion end on this.  Place your bread or sausage next to this.  Finish with a sprinkle of paprika around the plate edge.

Tools you’ll need to make this breakfast.
