I love having easy breakfast ideas on hand for the busy holiday season. This vegetable egg scramble can be ready in less than 20 minutes which is perfect for mornings when you need to rush out of the house or have a houseful of guests to feed. One of the best things about this recipe is that it is easily customizable to fit a variety of picky palettes.
I’ve started making a lot of different vegetable egg scrambles since this is one thing that Em will actually eat. She is pretty much a carb-free, sugar-free, vegetarian. Oh, and her dairy intake is severly limited due to being lactose intolerant. We’ve found two dairy foods that she can tolerate in very limited quantities: butter (I usually just use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to be extra safe) and aged-white cheddar. Yeah, it doesn’t leave much to choose from so I’ve started getting pretty creative when it comes to making meals.
Some fresh veggies, a couple eggs and a sprinkle of cheese and she has a healthy, hearty meal that fits her lifestyle. I don’t mind making egg scrambles because they cook up so quickly and easily.
Chop up vegetables into bite-sized pieces. We have tomatoes, green peppers (red & green, perfect for the holidays) and potatoes for the vegetable egg scramble.
Add 2 tablespoons of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to your pan set over medium heat. Add potatoes and green pepper.
Speaking of butter, have you tried the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter? It’s made from real, simple ingredients and has zero, zip, zilch artificial preservatives, but is full of taste. The ingredient list includes a blend of plant-based oils, purified water and a pinch of salt. Great for my lactose intolerant Em 🙂
