Arepas are the South American take on flatbread, usually made from corn flour, and completely delicious. Topped with perico-style eggs (the Venezuelan way to make a veggie-egg scramble), it's the perfect way to jumpstart your morning.

Ingredients

Arepas

1
cup whole-grain corn flour
1/2
cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
1/3
cup finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4
teaspoon salt
1
cup fat-free (skim) milk
1
teaspoon canola oil

Perico-Style Eggs

3
eggs
1
tablespoon fat-free (skim) milk
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1/4
cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4
cup chopped tomato
2
medium green onions, chopped (2 tablespoons)
Fresh parsley sprigs, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In medium bowl, mix flour, corn, cheese and 1/4 teaspoon salt. In microwavable measuring cup, heat 1 cup milk on High 1 minute 30 seconds or until hot but not boiling. Stir milk into corn mixture; let stand 10 minutes.
  • 2 In 8-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1/2 teaspoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Stir batter. Pour 1/4 cup batter into skillet; spread to 4-inch round. Cook about 30 seconds or until light golden brown on bottom and edges are dry. Turn and cook about 30 seconds longer. Transfer to heatproof plate; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter and 1/2 teaspoon oil.
  • 3 In medium bowl, beat eggs, 1 tablespoon milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper; set aside. Heat same skillet over medium heat with any remaining oil. Add bell pepper; cook and stir 1 minute. Pour egg mixture over bell pepper. Cook until eggs are set but slightly moist, stirring occasionally from outside edge to center of pan. Stir in tomato and onions.
  • 4 To serve, place 2 arepas on each of 4 plates. Serve with egg mixture. Garnish with parsley.
