Food is one way I celebrate my Latino culture and share memories with my kids. When I introduce them to a dish from my childhood, I also find myself being transported back to specific periods in my life. Some of the recipes become instant favorites for my kids, while others, flop. But being able to share them with my family, along with my childhood stories, brings me a lot of joy.
With the recent hurricane that devasted Puerto Rico, I find myself clinging to every memory I have from my days on the island. I’m proud of my heritage, and although my children will not experience what I did growing up, I can at least share my experience the best way I know how. Growing up, my grandmother always had a pot of Café Bustelo® brewing in her home. I remember having a cup of café con leche (coffee with milk) paired with Puerto Rican water bread or a breakfast sandwich. Although her home was completely destroyed by the hurricane, the memories will stay with me forever.
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes. This breakfast recipe is called Huevos Revuelto con Salchicha (Scrambled Eggs with Sausage), a colorful medley of delicious flavors. This tasty Latin-inspired breakfast paired with a hot cup of coffee is what mornings should be made of. I love pairing my eggs with a cup of Café Bustelo since the rich bold flavor stands up to any milk and sugar I add to it. Hey, this busy mama needs her coffee! 😉
Huevos Revuelto con Salchicha
1 small onion diced
1/3 of red pepper diced
1/3 of orange pepper diced
1/3 of yellow pepper diced
1/4 cup of finely chopped cilantro
1 can of Vienna Sausage
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Add butter to skillet. Over medium heat, sauté sausage, peppers, onions, and cilantro.
2. In a small bowl, beat eggs with salt and pepper.
2. Add eggs to the vegetable and sausage mixture.
3. Pull and lift egg mixture until there’s no liquid left. Flip the eggs to ensure it’s evenly cooked, but don’t over stir to prevent the eggs from breaking up.
4. Transfer to a plate and serve with a cup coffee, toast and/or fresh fruit.
Of course, I had to pair mine with a hot cup of Café Bustelo which is high-quality Hispanic coffee. Just another way for me to connect with my Latin culture during Hispanic Heritage Month and beyond. I like to use the K-Cup® Pods, which I found at my local Target store, so my coffee is ready in minutes.
