Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
3 ounces American pistachios, roughly chopped
4 Large eggs
2 tablespoons Milk
1/2 Green bell pepper, cut in 1/2-inch squares
1/2 Red bell pepper, cut in 1/2-inch squares
1 Jalapeno pepper, diced
1/2 Small red onion, diced
4 ounces Cajun or spicy sausage
2 tablespoons Sweet butter
Whip eggs and milk together until frothy. Sauté sausage, then onions and peppers, and finally oysters with 1 tablespoon butter for 1 minute. Drain and reserve. Over medium-high heat, melt remaining butter and add whipped eggs, cooking while stirring until barely set. Quickly add peppers, pistachios, sausage, onions and oysters; blend together and serve with fresh pineapple or apple wedges.
