In our house my husband is in charge of omelets–mine don’t even come close–but I do make the best scrambled eggs.  The secret, is to cook them slowly over a lower heat and  NOT over-stir!  You have to let them set, then stir, then set again.  Your patience will reward you with the fluffiest eggs ever, I promise!

This Fresh Veggie Egg Scramble brings together the fluffiest scrambled eggs and is one of my favorite ways to use up leftover vegetables.  It is faster than a frittata or quiche which makes it perfect for busy weekday mornings.  I will pretty much chop up whatever I’ve got–broccoli, carrots, onion, green onion, leeks, potatoes, zucchini, fresh herbs, etc–and it always turns out delicious! It is also a great recipe for a quick and easy dinner, when you are not sure what to make.

    You can’t believe how much I liked this recipe. Many of us, particularly kids dislike veggies. I don’t find any reason to avoid such delicious veggie-rich breakfast.

    Yuuuuum! I can’t wait to try this!!

    I like to buy my veggies pre-diced to make recipes like this even easier! Walmart is pre-dicing some veggies in their produce section, but I’m also starting to see several brands of pre-diced onions, peppers, zucchinis, and potatoes in the freezer section.

    I actually dedicated an entire blog post to cooking cheats, to make my family healthy meals as quickly and easily as possible!
