  • 2 carrots peeled & chopped
  • 1/2 small onion chopped
  • 2-3 red potatoes diced
  • 1 large leek chopped
  • 1 cup fresh broccoli florets chopped
  • 2-3 green onions chopped
  • 1 large zucchini peeled and chopped
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half & half
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Chop all vegetables into bit size pieces.
  2. Whisk together eggs, half & half, and salt & pepper.  Break cream cheese into small chunks & whisk into eggs.
  3. Melt butter over medium-high heat; add chopped vegetables & sauté until veggies are soft, 6-8 minutes.  REDUCE HEAT to medium-low. Let pan cool for a few minutes.

  4. Pour egg mixture over top of veggies. Spread out cream cheese chunks so they are evenly spaced.

  5. Sprinkle cheese over top of egg. Let set 1-2 minutes. Lightly stir eggs; let set 1-2 minutes more.

  6. Lightly stir eggs again, turning them over to make sure they cook evenly; let set 1-2 minutes more.
  7. Give eggs a final light stir and remove from heat.  Sprinkle with extra cheese, if desired. Serve with a side of toast and enjoy!
