One of the struggles here at Blue Shutters- This Momma’s House is breakfast. Yeah, that’s right, my family doesn’t give me any time to wake up and get my bearings straight. When it comes to breakfast, they see my kitchen as the International House of Pancakes. Everyone likes something different and I’m not about to tempt being a short-order cook while trying to get everyone ready for the trip to school.
So when trying to think about what I could make other than waffles, pancakes, or just a plain old bowl of cereal for breakfast, I remembered something that my dad would make my sister and I on his weekends… browned sausage and scrambled eggs all mixed together. We’d gobble that up faster than he could make it.
The first time I made it for my group, they loved it. Then I had to go around and add in veggies like a weird mom… and they still ate it! At first I was in shock. 9 out of 10 times I put vegetables in front of my kids the whole room goes into a mass hysteria. “I’m not eating this! I’ll eat peanut butter out of the jar instead.” I’m not hungry anymore.” If I eat that, my insides will pop out!” Even hubs, “What do you think I am? A rabbit?” Yet they still eat this dish! So it’s definitely been a keeper around here and I think one of the reasons it’s done so well, it’s never the same. Let me explain…
eggs- about 1 per person.
cooked bacon or browned ground sausage or diced ham (whatever you have or is on sale)
veg: we like to use onions (white, red, or green)
bell peppers (red, yellow, or green)
spinach is a good one in this
diced tomato even chopped mushrooms
then if we’re feeling cheesy, a sprinkle of shredded cheese (usually cheddar or colby jack)
|Today’s scramble- ham, yellow bell pepper, and red onion.|
This dish is perfect for those ‘day before grocery shopping’ or the ‘I’ve got to use this before it goes bad’ days. Just grab what you have and dice it up into small pieces. Scramble the eggs in a bowl. Spray the pan with cooking spray and then dump all the meat, veg, and eggs in. Stir it like you would when making plain scrambled eggs. When it’s finished cooking, divide it onto plates and then sprinkle with cheese if you’d like.
In total, it takes about 15 minutes from start to finish (including making toast and pouring either juice or milk) so it’s a great quick breakfast for school mornings. You could even chop everything up the night before to make it an even quicker breakfast for those hectic mornings.
