Breakfast Egg Scramble with Half your Daily Serving of Vegetables

breakfast egg scramble with half your daily serving of vegetables

This delicious breakfast scramble is a quick and easy way to get half your daily servings of fruit and vegetable all before noon (or later if you are a late sleeper)! It works great as a make-ahead breakfast as well. I love this particular scramble because it fills me up almost to dinner time.

This breakfast scramble took me about 10 minutes to make from start to finish.

The serving size is for 1-2 people. I eat half of it and feel satisfied, my husband disagrees and claims the whole plate for himself. But with just simple math you can adjust the serving to your needs (who says math is useless).

While my pan was heating up I promptly chopped down a couple of sausages and about a cup of cherry tomatoes. Any type of tomatoes will do here, pick your favorite! I always pick natural sausages from naturally fed, hormone free pork.

I then browned the tomatoes and sausage in about 1 tablespoon of grass fed butter. There really is no set time, brown until you like the look of it, for me it is about 3-5 minutes.

When my tomatoes and sausage were to my liking I added the spinach, I don’t like the spinach overly cooked and slimy so I gave it a quick stir before removing the scramble to a bowl.

While the spinach was cooking, I whisked together the 2 eggs like crazy until they became nice and fluffy (don’t worry, it only takes about 30 seconds).

I added 3 tablespoon of heavy cream which give the eggs a great fluff. I gave it a vigorous whisk until the eggs and cream where mixed well together.

In the same pan I made the scramble I melted 2 tablespoon of grass fed butter and spread the egg mixture in the pan and covered. 3 minutes later they were ready. HINT if you are making this as a make-ahead breakfast, under cook your eggs by at least a minute so they will heat up better.

Then you can choose to eat the omelet like this, or make it into a scramble if like for me the omelet refuses to stay together. Either way, it tastes great!
