A quick, delicious breakfast

It's almost too simple to call a recipe.  I have been making this dish with many variations for the last couple of years.  It only takes about 5 minutes (not including harvest) and is a great way to eat some fresh garden veggies.  I call it

Scrambled Eggs and Veggies


I have made this with Asparagus, Broccoli, and it is shown here with Kale, though I am sure there are numerous other great options.  I do think that it is best to keep it simple, and work with one vegetable in a batch.  Basically I just chop and saute the veggies until they are slightly wilted, then add the eggs and scramble.  Being from Wisconsin, I usually throw a little shredded cheese on top as well.  The whole process takes about 5 minutes.
The seasoning options are endless.  Some of my favorites are simple, with just a touch of salt, pepper, and cheese, or spicy, with hot sauce and butter.
It's delicious, nutritious, and something we can make almost entirely from the garden.  Using the cast iron makes cleanup a breeze.  If you would have told me a few years ago that I would be growing and eating kale, I would have thought you were insane, unless you fed me this first!  I wouldn't exactly call it gourmet, but for two people who work full time and never seem to have enough time to take care of ourselves, it works really well.

Some good combinations:

Swiss Chard and Mushrooms
Saute mushrooms for 2 min then add chopped chard

when chard is slightly wilted add eggs salt and pepper
Scramble, add cheese when finished

  1. Sounds delicious, can't wait for our new asparagus bed to grow (just planted with hardware cloth below), our old one was attacked by some varmint that was hungry, what we do to live with nature~
