I love eating a home-cooked breakfast. My husband and I haven’t had cereal in over a year and a half and we have not missed it one bit. I make a homemade granola recipe for days when I’m too busy to cook breakfast in the morning but most of the time, I will cook up something delicious.
This dish is something that I just came up with in an attempt to eat a healthier diet. I don’t have any exact measurements as this is something you can easily adjust to your liking.
Step 1: Cook your bacon in the oven. My oven runs a little hotter so I heat my bacon at 350 degrees for 17 minutes or until nice and crispy. You can do this directly on a cookie sheet but for easier clean up use foil.
Step 2: Chop up your veggies into bite size pieces
In the above picture, I used a green bell pepper, yellow squash, and zucchini. YUM!
Step 3: When the bacon has about 10 minutes left in the oven, start heating a skillet over medium heat. I like to use my iron skillet to cook this meal. And yes, I am easily able to cook eggs in my skillet with an easy clean up. But it took a few months of seasoning before I was able to do this. After it was properly seasoned, it was better than a non-stick skillet. I will do a separate post talking about using an iron skillet.
Step 4: Crack your eggs in a bowl and stir with a fork or whisk. You can also add salt and pepper at this time, but I do this on my skillet because it helps season the skillet.
Step 5: With about 4 minutes left for the bacon, melt about a tablespoon of coconut oil, butter, or bacon grease in the skillet.
Step 6: Add salt and pepper to your skillet if you are using an iron skillet. Add chopped vegetables and cook for about a minute or two.
Step 7: Add the eggs to the vegetable mixture and scramble. Serve with bacon, fruit, or toast.
Ingredients needed (if cooking for 2):
1 bell pepper (I only used part of the pepper)
1 zucchini (I only used part of it)
1 yellow squash (I only used part of it)
Salt and pepper
coconut oil, bacon grease, or butter
If you give this meal a try, I hope that you enjoy it and let me know what you think.
