scrambledeggs1000I feel like the weekend always zooms past, and even though I seem to spend a large portion of it cooking, I’m always left scratching my head as to what I should eat!  This Sunday morning, after lugging back a bunch of groceries, I found myself hungry but yet bereft of any quick and easy foods.  So, after perusing through my refrigerator, I reached the decision that a quick scramble with some eggs and veggies would be a good (and more importantly, QUICK) solution.  Also, I had just picked up some fresh berries so they would be perfect as “dessert.”

I pulled out the veggies from my fridge – 4 baby bella mushrooms, a 1/4 cup red bell peppers I had left over from a previous cooking session and a handful of spinach leaves.  I also spotted some left over deli ham.  So, I chopped everything up, dropped a knob of butter into the frying pan and started sautéing it all.

Meanwhile, I quickly whisked 3 eggs and dumped them into a different frying pan with some butter.  The trick for great tasting eggs is NOT TO OVERCOOK THEM!

To prevent overcooking, but also to have them be cooked in a reasonably quick time, I set the heat on medium, and kept on stirring, making sure the eggs were stirred up as soon as some got stuck to the bottom of the pan.  It’s a bit labor intensive, but it makes for much better scrambled eggs.

After scrambling was complete, I turned off the heat, seasoned the eggs with a bit of salt and pepper and stirred in the sautéed veggies and deli ham.
