When cooking for one, eggs are the hero. When I just want something quick and cheap and don't feel like cooking up a whole meat dish (as meat is usually sold by the pound and can make shopping for one difficult), this is my go-to. Even if you buy the expensive, high quality eggs, the protein in this meal comes to a grand total of a dollar. Add on the veggies and you have a meal that takes 20 minutes or less and costs about three dollars.
I like traditional omelettes, but they can be a little bit difficult and actually require the right frying pan and some cooking talent to perfect. This is like a "lazy omelette", which has more veggies than eggs. It is not quite a scramble, but kind of like a bunch of veggies held together with eggs and cheese.
On other words, it's pretty good!
- 2 eggs
- 1-2 tbsp butter or coconut oil
- Vegetables of choice - you can even use leftover cooked veggies of literally just open the fridge an see what you need to use
- In this recipe, I use zucchini, onion, and sweet potato
- Other ones I like to use are: frozen spinach or peas.
- Optional add-ins: cooked meat/sausage, grass fed cheese, pesto, avocado
Only put them in the pan when the butter is melted, and the pan is hot. You know the pan is hot if you put your finger on it and you get a 2nd degree burn. (DON'T ACTUALLY DO THAT!!!)
No, but seriously, you can test if it is hot buy putting one piece of vegetable in and hearing if it sizzles. Then you may put the rest in.
While you're waiting, you can crack open the two eggs into a bowl and beat them with a fork. We are not putting the egg mix in until the veggies are cooked, so hang tight.
What I did next was flip it over in pieces. It would take a lot of skill to flip the whole thing over in one go, and to be honest, it would probably taste the same. The picture below is what t looked like after I flipped it over.
Just remember, if all fails and it all falls apart, you still have a great scrambled egg dish.
