Nighthawks at the Bento


Every time I make eggs and sausage for breakfast, I always start singing “Eggs and Sausage (In a Cadillac with Susan Michelson)” off Tom Waits’s Nighthawks at the Diner. Unlike the song, however, there is no side of toast, I was drinking my coffee while I was cooking, and the presence of a roll is replaced by a side of cucumbers and baby carrots. There is also a lack of hash browns over easy as well as chili, burger and fries because, let’s face it, that is WAY too much food to consume in one sitting. I’d end up like the enormous man in Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life.

My scrambled eggs are a 4:1 ratio of egg whites to a whole egg. I put in some frozen spinach and half an ounce of shredded Mexican cheese as well. This whole mixture is very high in protein, pretty filling, and just shy of 200 calories. I recommend eating it with salsa.
