This veggie scramble is a delicious and healthy breakfast that you can make in less than ten minutes.
I love eggs! As much as I love frittatas, omelettes and breakfast casseroles…sometimes you just need your egg dish to be a bit simpler.
Enter the scramble. It’s like an omelette without all the stress. Perfect for a lazy Saturday!
This is one of those recipes that is more about the method, and less about the actual recipe. In fact, I never measure anything when I make this for myself.
There are a hundred ways you can make this your own too. You can use egg whites, or half whole eggs/ half whites. You can do different veggies, switch up the cheese or add meat of your choice. The possibilities are endless.
This recipe is probably my go-to, though. I love the combination of onions, peppers and mushrooms. To me, this flavor combination is perfection. Today I am using Monterey jack cheese, but this is also great with cheddar.
