Irvine’s Cowboy Breakfast

Irvine KinneasIrvine:  “Hey, hey, hey, this isn’t my department.”

Squall:  “Then what is?”

Irvine:  “Guns and women, of course.”


This recipe serves two for breakfast… just the way Irvine likes it.  Pair with freshly brewed coffee and introductions if necessary.

  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • Salt and freshly-ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • Hot pepper sauce (Cholula or Tapatio are recommended)
  • 2 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can refried beans
  • Corn or flour tortillas, warmed

In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.  Melt butter in a large skillet and add egg mixture.  Sprinkle with hot pepper sauce.  Continue to cook over medium heat until the edges begin to set.

Add cheese and stir gently, allowing the parts that are still liquid to flow to the bottom of the pan.  Cook for about another minute, until cheese is melted.  Divide eggs between two plates.

Add beans to the skillet and heat on medium-high.  Serve with eggs and tortillas.
