    FLUFFSTER's Note:

    What a fantastic way to have carnitas any time of the day or night! If you do not care for cilantro, you may use chopped parsley in it's place. This is great for large groups of friends or small get-togethers. Here's a tip: I buy Pork Butt Roasts, bone-in. All you have to do is remove the bone. You just take a sharp knife and grab ahold of the bone, take your knife and just run it around the bone. It's so easy, I know you can do it. Those pork butt roasts, sometimes called Boston Butt Roasts, are really inexpensive. Much cheaper than pork chops. You are paying for the bone, but it's so easy to take out. And, it's a very flavorful piece of meat. That's all I use for my Mexican food recipes.

    1. 1
      Saute pork, 3 tablespoons onions and garlic in 2 tablespoons butter in small skillet over low heat.
    2. 2

      Sprinkle pork mixture evenly over eggs. Carefully pour remaining eggs over pork, cover and place in preheated 350°F oven for about 12 to 16 minutes, or until eggs are set. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with cheese and return to oven till cheese is melted, approximately 7 to 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove from oven and sprinkle with cilantro leaves, tomato and remaining 1 tablespoons onion. Let set 5 minutes before cutting.

      Made for KK's Chefs Picks Event. Because I would be the only one eating this I made 1/3rd the recipe, using left over pork butt roast shredded, and left out the tomato due to digestive tract problems. This was a very easy breakfast/brunch dish and quite tasty. The lime juice really adds to the pork mixture and thusly adds to the dish altogether. Thank you Di for the wonderful meal.
