What’s For Breakfast? by Katie

On Saturdays (okay everyday while I’m not employed), I like to check out the vegetable drawer for breakfast.  Sneak a serving or two in first thing. Use up leftovers or those on-the-out vegetables before you go shopping again.

Pull out all your vegetables and figure out what order to put everything in the pan.  If you do it all at once, you might end up with burned or soggy vegetables.  If using mushrooms, add them first since shrooms get schweaty.  Check out the sweat on the side of the pan above.

After the shrooms sweat it out, add peppers, onion, broccoli, or anything else.  Maybe you have some already cooked leftovers (cubed sweet and white potatoes), add those next along with tomatoes.  And some leftover deli ham or some crumbled bacon..

While everything warms up, whisk together your eggs (those yolks have SO many nutrients and remember dietary cholesterol ≠ blood cholesterol!), turn down the heat a notch and pour eggs over the vegetables.

Cook it until the eggs are set to your liking and you’re starting your day pretty balanced- vegetables, fiber, protein, fat.  Uh, then try to take an appetizing picture of eggs.  It’s not easy.
