sliced fresh mushrooms
chopped green bell peppers
chopped fresh tomato
shredded Cheddar cheese
Great for a Sunday breakfast! I didn't use 1/4 cup of olive oil though - about half of that as I use a non-stick pan. This combination of veggies is great, all I added was a little minced garlic. This was perfect with a side of bacon and whole grain toast!
I leave out the chopped tomatoes and add Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles or any left over ham or smoked sausage I may have and a bit of minced garlic. 1/4 cup of Olive oil does sound like a bit much though,I just add a drizzle to the pan!
Of course most of us know how to make scrambled eggs as one reviewer correctly pointed out BUT we often forget delicious veggie combinations that are yummy with scrambled eggs. Recipes often jog our memories. Thanks for jogging mine!
Old, I mean experienced, cooks like me don't need a recipe for something like this, but I'm sure they'll agree with me that when you're brain dead and don't know what to make a recipe like this is great for an "aha!" moment of inspiration. Novice or beginner cooks will appreciate this recipe as it is so ideal and instructional. Good for you and good tasting too, packed with healthy carbs, protein, dairy and a little fat, you know you're doing your body good. I made only one real change to the recipe...I use olive oil for just about everything, but never with eggs so I used butter instead. I added salt and pepper, didn't measure anything precisely, and used a colorful mix of orange, yellow, green and red bell peppers. I served this with "Crispy Mashed Potato Pancake," also from this site.
Ooooh, what a great way to start the day. I used butter instead of oil & served this wrapped in warm tortillas. When I'm in a pinch for time, I use salsa (chunky works best), delicious! Thanks Eiore!
I cut this down to two servings, used one full egg and one egg white, and increased the veggies. I used 2% sharp cheddar and added some fresh minced garlic. Very good.
I agree with many of the comments here. What a wonderful memory jog to inspire me for this morning's breakfast. I had everything in my refrigerator; even made this type of breakfast before, just wasn't thinking about it. Thanks for the inspiration. By the way, I did use butter instead of olive oil, my preference for eggs.
