Sofrito Eggs

Have you ever gotten in trouble for being late, promised it’ll never happen again and then for some unforsaken reason you’re late the next day? Or maybe you commented on how often you do something and after that you’re unable to do that task for a while?

Well, I talked about packing lunch and today I woke up without any time to pack today’s lunch. Fail. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow.

Egg Quesadilla

One great thing I managed to do was a delicious breakfast. It may sound weird but I did something I never thought I’d do. While I was whisking my eggs I added about 1/2 a tsp of sofrito. I know, I know. You’re probably cringing at the thought, trust me I did. I opened my refridgerator door wondering what on earth can I add to my eggs that isn’t fattening. I stared at a block of goat cheese and shunned the little voice in my head. That’s when I saw it, the jar of freshly made sofrito. As I reached for it I thought to myself, I can’t believe I’m about to do this. Then I figured if it was bad I could always whip up a batch of creamy pear oats. I’m a fan of adding salsa to eggs so I figured it couldn’t be that bad. Let’s just say, I’m happy I went outside my box! This breakfast was super yummy and filling! I normally despise garlic anywhere near my eggs so I’m pleasantly surprised at how well this turned out, I just had to share :)

Sofrito Eggs
This recipes double or triples easily. If making more than 1 serving stick to 1 tsp of sofrito as a max.
Cuisine: Spanish
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white
  • ½ tsp sofrito
  • 1 wrap (I used a habañero lime wrap)
  • chopped tomato or any vegetable
  • 2 oz. gimme lean breakfast sausage or breakfast sausage of your choice
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • ketchup (optional)
  1. Whisk your eggs, softrito and salt and pepper in a bowl. One you have a heated pan that's lightly buttered add your eggs and cook on low.
  2. Just before flipping your eggs add your chopped vegetable, then flip. While that's finishing up heat your breakfast "sausage".
  3. To serve, place your eggs on one half of your wrap and add your "sausage". If adding ketchup add now, fold like a quesadilla and enjoy!
  4. If you start drooling you know you did a good job. The flavor of the sofrito is definitely not strong at the least, it's almost not noticeable but it does have a familiar Latin flavor to it, maybe somewhat similar to adding salsa.
