Breakfast of Champions

We feasted upon this deliciousness on New Years morning. It is Mediterranean scrambled eggs with turkey bacon and blueberry crunch pancakes, with some left over champagne mimosas.

Mediterranean Eggs
5 eggs
2 Tblsp milk
crumbled tomato basil feta cheese (~1/4 cup)
5 fresh basil leaves chopped
1/4 chopped yellow onion
1/2 tomato chopped
kosher salt
fresh ground pepper
Beat eggs with milk. Pour into skillet and add other ingredients. Scramble.

Blueberry Crunch Pancakes
Pancake mix (and ingredients the mix says you need)
Container of blueberries
I just use box pancake mix(I use Krusteaz). Once I have the batter mixed up, I pour about 1/4 cup into a preheated skillet and drop some blueberries on top (I sqeeze them between my fingers and pop them first) and then sprinkle some granola in as well. From there, cook like any normal pancake.

How to cut an onion without crying

I recently stumbled upon this link and it totally works. Usually when I cut onions I'm in the kitchen crying like a baby. Not anymore!
