I read this trick recently and it works!
When you crack your eggs in the non stick skillet place a plate over the skillet.
Just for a minute or two and you will see the whites of the egg quickly are firm.
Makes for easier flipping and you salt and pepper and replace the plate again for a minute or so and you have perfect over easy eggs.
You can leave plate on longer for less runny yokes.

Confession! Since finding this little gem at our HEB deli we have had these tacos …. Uh well, let’s just say …. Too many times!
I was at our local HEB and I buy their in house roasted deli meats. You pay more but they taste better and have no nitrates added.
I noticed they now had brisket. So at just $12.97 a pound I thought “hey easy meal” “why not”?
I always buy the mission brand extra thin corn tortillas. The reason is for 3 tacos you are under 200 or so calories and your carb count is around 24.
So I thought, hey we have some Hot Hot Hot Salsa and some Holy Guacamole – why not have easy tacos?
I don’t fry my corn tortillas in oil to keep it healthy and instead place on a baking pan.
Our big pan holds 6 easily.
I laid down one slice of the thin brisket, and a small sprinkle of Extra Sharp White Vermont Cheddar. Placed in oven at 350 for 5 minutes.
Topped with shredded lettuce, and our salsa and guacamole. You can add sour cream or olives or onions or tomatoes or whatever taco toppings you like.
There you have a quick easy dinner idea and of course something new for taco Tuesday or any day of the week.
We loved those so much we decided to make a breakfast version- we topped them with a nice over easy fried egg. #YummO. – Holy Guacamole is optional but we liked them with the avocado.
It was good stuff! ~XXOO Michelle Bollom
You can also make with rotisserie chicken or whatever meat or even beans you have handy.
Want to know how to get the perfect avocados?
Buy then hard and green when cheap and place in a brown paper bag.
Holy Guacamole – it works!
In 1-2 days they are perfectly ripe!
I learned this little trick years ago.
We like to smash ours with garlic, lime juice, cream cheese and a spoon of our homemade salsa.
And there you have the secret to the best avocados and guacamole.
All your friends and family will be saying “Holy Guacamole” when you share this little trick!
