1/4 cup green pepper

1/2 cup cheese

Beat eggs. Add butter to pan and let melt. Keep on medium. Add egg and green pepper and onion. Turn down to low or medium low- cover. Let cook about 10 minutes. Add cheese and cook for about 5 more minutes.

I used the smallet skillet I had. Probably about 6-8 inches.

Chef Salad

There really isn't a recipe for chef salad. We just throw things together, but here is a list of some of the things that we like.

cheese chunks
ham, turkey or chicken
boiled egg
toasted walnuts
kidney beans or balck beans
red onion

chicken salad

2 cups diced chicken- i use canned chicken
2 cups diced celery
1/4 minced green onion
2/3 cup miracle whip- add 1 tsp sugar and 1 tsp vinegar

Mix. You can refrigerate overnight- this will cause the celery to not be so crunchy if that is how you like it.
