As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve really been getting into the habit of adding vegetables to our breakfast routine. Leftover veggies from the grill are an easy add. Just cut them up, sauté them a bit and add in some beaten eggs. But what do you do when you don’t have any leftover veggies? Well, I just cut up some fresh ones. I love this broccoli egg scramble. It’s so simple to make. If I’m smart, I’ll start the night before so making breakfast is as easy as tossing them into a skillet. This week we had some broccoli rolling around the fridge. I hadn’t gotten around to grilling it, so I finely chopped it up including some of the stems. I sautéed it with some onion and some leftover turkey bacon. I’m not the biggest fan of turkey bacon. Why not just use regular bacon? Well, less fat and switching up breakfast meats is always good. I find it to be a bit more salty than pork bacon. I’m not sure if that’s just me. But in a scramble it works perfectly, that way we don’t use too much extra salt when serving.
As this was just a scramble for me, I added two eggs once the broccoli and onion were softened and stirred it all into scrambled eggs. Some leftover parmesan from dinner a few nights prior topped off the concoction.
This broccoli egg scramble expands well for company too. Just keep cutting veggies and keep cracking eggs. A scramble also takes less time than an egg bake. Somedays I’m able to get an egg bake ready before we take our am walk but most days I don’t have those few extra moments to heat the oven. It takes just a few stirs on the stove and it’s ready.
