This recipe came about on a morning when I wanted to make a nice breakfast but was sick of having plain old eggs. I looked in the fridge and saw a little bit of broccoli, a green pepper, and onions, so I decided to make scrambled eggs with veggies! Then I started to get creative and added some garlic, Sriracha, and shredded cheddar, and the result was absolutely delicious! Thumbs up all around.
3 tbsp. whole milk
2 tbsp. butter
¼ cup chopped pepper
¼ cup chopped onion
¼ cup chopped broccoli (same size as peppers and onions)
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and fresh cracked pepper
½ cup grated cheddar cheese, divided
2 tsp. Sriracha sauce (optional)
Step 1: Melt one tablespoon of butter in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add the peppers, onions, broccoli, and garlic and saute for a minute or two or until veggies are crisp-tender. Season with salt and pepper and then transfer veggies to a bowl. Wipe the pan clean.
Step 2: Whisk the eggs, milk, 1 teaspoon Sriracha, and a dash of salt and pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in the frying pan over medium heat. Add the egg mixture to the pan and heat for about a minute, gently stirring the eggs throughout. Once you begin to see a few soft lumps of egg form, reduce the heat to low and add the veggies and 1/3 cup of the cheese. Begin to gently fold the egg over the veggies and cheese as the mixture continues to cook over low heat.
Step 3: Stir in 1 teaspoon of sriracha. Once there is very little liquid egg left in the pan, sprinkle the eggs with the remaining cheddar cheese. Let the cheese begin to melt slightly, then remove from heat and transfer to a serving plate. Enjoy!
