The best brunch ever: scrambled eggs, pancetta and sausages

The best brunch ever: scrambled eggs, pancetta and sausages | casaveneracion.com

There wasn’t a lot of cooking that went on in the house today as we were too busy trying to figure out if I was pregnant or not. Turns out, I’m not. Am I relieved or disappointed? Neither. No strong emotions either way. Probably, at the back of my mind, I knew I couldn’t be pregnant. Speedy’s too careful because, as he says, with our girls in college, we can already see the Finish Line and the prospect of going through all of it again kind of dampens the thought that, very soon, we can just go honeymooning wherever.

So, anyway. The only thing I managed to cook was brunch. Speedy took care of supper but didn’t take photos of the wonderful chicken and mangoes dish that he cooked.

And what did we have for brunch? Two dishes, both super easy to prepare.

The first was a simple scrambled eggs and pancetta (Italian bacon) dish. We were watching Junior Master Chef last night and I picked up a few tips about the proper way to cook scrambled eggs.

It’s all about the texture. Scrambled egg is not the same as omelet and scrambled eggs should be soft, light and have volume.

The second dish was sautéed Hungarian sausages and onions tossed in honey-mustard sauce.
