#PWMF2014 Recipe Contest Breakfast Winner: Vicky’s Strapatsada

I’m still working on the free recipe e-book for this year’s “Play With My Food” recipe contest, but I thought in the meantime I’d showcase the
winning recipes. So check back this week as I post each of the five winning
recipes in the following categories: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and
dessert.

First up, breakfast!

The winner of the breakfast category also has the honor of
having submitted a recipe I had never, ever, EVER heard of in my life. But it’s
kinda fun to say. Stapatsada!

This is a yummy breakfast recipe from Greece, where Vicky lives. (How awesome is it that we have Foodies, everywhere?)

Vicky’s Strapatsada
Ingredients:
  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoonful of olive oil
  • 1/2 tomato finely chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper finely chopped
  • 50 gr feta cheese (1/4 c. for us non-metric using Americans!)
  • Pepper, to taste

In a non-stick frying pan heat the
olive oil with the green pepper until soft (2-3 minutes). (Nik-note: I’d set a
pan over medium heat, allow it to get hot [2-ish minutes] then add olive oil.)

Add the tomato and let simmer for
about 5 minutes.

Beat the egg and add to pan along
with the feta cheese crumbled.

Cook for another 3 minutes. Add
pepper to taste (no need to add salt as feta is quite salty), turn off heat and
let stand for another 5 minutes. It will continue to cook.
Serve hot.
Here’s what the Breakfast
Foodie-Judge had to say about why this was a winning recipe:
This recipe was super flavorful, the simmered tomatoes gave
this dish a fantastic rustic flavor…and while I would have probably added a
tiny bit of salt (not recommended in the recipe) they flavors were fabulous
together. I also chose this recipe because 90% of the time when I choose to
prepare an actual breakfast and not a breakfast drink, I am the only person who
will eat said breakfast.
This recipe had all the flavors I love, and was a perfect portion for
me. I started out with half of the finished portion (as the recipe said it was
filling) but I found that the full portion with a couple slices of tomato was
just the right size for me. No leftovers!
Before the judges could make a final decision on a winning recipe, they
had to prepare the dish they were considering. Here’s Shannon’s Strapatsada.


Congratulations to Vicky, who will win a $50 Amazon gift card for her
winning entry.
