A classic Venezuelan breakfast includes scrambled eggs, black beans, grated white cheese and arepas. That's a classic at home! To make my life easier and to save some time in the kitchen, I prepare the beans during the week, for a lunch or dinner, and I freeze a serving for the weekend breakfast. That way, all I have to prepare are the eggs and arepas. To me, this is the best breakfast in the world... Try it!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onion, sliced
  • 6-8 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons salt (or to taste)
  • Black pepper, to taste (optional)
  • 2 cups black Venezuelan beans (caraotas), cooked and seasoned to taste
  • White cheese, grated, to taste
  • 8 small arepa, grilled

Directions

  • 1
    Heat a non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Put the butter and oil until the butter melts. Add onion and fry until transparent, for 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and green onion, and fry for 2-3 more minutes.
  • 2
    Beat the eggs and milk in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix to combine.
  • 3
    Pour eggs on the saucepan. Slowly stir with a silicone spatula. When the eggs start to cook, reduce heat to low. Fold cooked parts of the eggs over uncooked parts. Do not stir constantly. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the eggs are ready but still a bit wet.

    Serve with beans, cheese and arepas.
