Refrigerator Scramble

Jay and I almost always have a good breakfast that includes plenty of veggies.  This starts the day off right, and helps ensure we are eating 7-9 servings of fruits and veggies every day.  One of my favorite ways to cook is to just scramble up almost everything I find in the fridge.  Here is how it’s done.

Ingredients:

  1. Chopped onion and/or garlic 
  2. Chemical free sausage, bacon, or any leftover meat from the night before.
  3. About a cup of chopped mixed veggies (I like squash, tomatoes, banana peppers, and mushrooms, but any assortment of veggies should work fine. Use what you have)
  4. About a cup of washed and chopped greens such as kale, spinach, or chard. (You could also add fresh herbs)
  5. 4-5 fresh eggs
  6. Your favorite grated cheese

Instructions:

  1. Fry out the onions, garlic, and meat until it is almost as done as you like it.  
  2. Add the chopped veggies and cook until getting soft.
  3. Add the greens and cook until just wilted
  4. Add the beaten eggs and scramble up the whole thing.
  5. Top with cheese and serve.

There really are no rules about this dish.  Use anything you want in it.  One CSA member adds fresh tomato and balsamic vinegar to her egg/veg dishes. Try it!  I also never measure any of it.  I just chop up a bunch of veggies.  Mine is different almost every time I cook it, based on what I have in the fridge.  Don’t be afraid to experiment.  This dish is hard to mess up.  It makes a really solid breakfast, that is high in protein and loaded in veggies.  This one will stick with you at least until lunch!

Eat your veggies, and your eggs, 

Robin
