December 7th Surprise

An easy to make, easy to eat breakfast:

Open a carton of pre-washed, pre-sliced Monterey mushrooms. Let them languish in the fridge for a few days until they're somewhat dried up, alllowing for a more intense flavor.

In a microwave-safe dish, place a pat of butter and about 3 oz. of the mushrooms. Drizzle them with some olive oil.

Cover and zap for 1 minute. (All times based on my microwave. Yours may be different.)

Break 3 eggs atop the fungi. Smush up the eggs, mixing them gently into the steamy mushrooms. (Trader Joe's sells these great DHA Omega-3 eggs that have intense yellow yolks, just like the country farm variety.)

Cover and zap for about 45 seconds.

Sprinkle a handful of shredded cheddar/jack cheese mix and stir into the eggs.

Zap uncovered from 30 to 45 seconds, depending on how moist you like your eggs.

Stir, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

For a special Dec. 7th surprise treat, bomb the eggs with Japan's finest soy sauce. ( Kikkoman is an excellent brand.)
