Give some extra flavor to regular scrambled eggs by adding some colorful vegetables, and don’t forget to accompany this delicious breakfast with a good cup of Café Bustelo®!
Being in a foreign country by “yourself” can be a bit stressful, I remember when I came to this United States about 15 years ago to pursue my dreams. Although I had family here, I missed my mom, dad, my sisters, my friends, of course the food, and the bold flavor of Latin coffee.
I stayed in touch with my family and friends through email and phones calls (social media was not famous back then). But still, I missed my mom’s sazón– I mean, you can find Dominican food almost everywhere here, but there’s nothing like a good home cooked meal made by your mom!
One of the first dishes I learned to make was her scrambled eggs, a simple yet so delicious recipe. Then little by little I started creating other recipes and that’s how my passion for cooking started…
Today I want to share this easy recipe for revoltillo de huevos (Dominican scrambled eggs) which I love to accompany with a good cup of Café Bustelo®. Dark, pure and flavorful, this bold blend is roasted and ground from the finest coffees in the world, it reminds me of my Latino café. No fancy equipment needed–just brew it and enjoy it your way!
Café Bustelo® is a high-quality Hispanic coffee that connects you to Latin culture. It has a rich full-bodied flavor that stands up to milk and sugar. (i.e you can still taste the COFFEE). So when I make my delicious Dominican style scrambled eggs for breakfast I make sure my cafecito is ready to go!
So…Are you ready to try this unique recipe? 🙂
