  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1/2 tangerine, peeled
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup grated cheese, I used Blarney Castle Kerrygold


  1. In a skillet, place a non-stick skillet on medium heat and add butter.
  2. In a small bowl add the eggs, salt and pepper. With a fork beat until blended.

  3. Add the eggs to the pan and move them around with a spatula, pulling sides inward while swirling pan to fill in the gaps.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients.
  5. Once the eggs are set, lift one side over, forming an envelope.
  6. Cook for 2-3 more minutes for the eggs to set and the cheese to melt.
  7. Flip onto a plate and enjoy!
