Entertain At Home, Inexpensively-Bring An Easy Cobb Scramble To Brunch
(NAPSA) - Going out is out, eating in is in. Home entertaining has become big again, as folks look for an economical way to gather friends and family together but still stay within a budget. This easy meal in a skillet is just right for any brunch occasion-pregame, lazy Sunday or "just let's get together"-or for a weekend breakfast or weekday supper.
This winter there's a bumper crop of beautiful Hass Avocados from Chile. The seasons down there are just the reverse of ours, so Hass Avocados from Chile complement the California supply. Use leftover chicken or turkey and select less expensive blue cheese crumbles and you'll have an impressive main dish. The food cost is low and so is the calorie count-less than 250 per serving!
Avocados are more than just pretty and tasty-they provide nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, including phytonutrients thought to help prevent many chronic diseases, and all for just 50 calories in a 1-ounce serving. They have no sodium and no cholesterol. A 1-ounce serving of avocados contains MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids)-the "good" fats.
For other eating-in events, consider a fruit plate of citrus and avocado slices sprinkled with some fresh mint, or Hass avocado slices atop a frittata, in a club sandwich, on a burger or even scattered over a hot dog-a Chilean favorite. For plenty of great recipes, visit www.chileanavocados.org.
All the great flavors of the famous Cobb salad-turkey, bacon, blue cheese and, of course, avocado-in an easy, easy skillet breakfast, brunch or supper. Complete the quick-to-make meal with a fruit salad and you're done.
