Broccoli and cheese scramble for breakfast

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Nothing powers me up more than a good breakfast. And I definitely need the power when I come home from the fire station in the morning and Lupe, my wife, hands me my honey-do list for the day.
Here is one of my favorite breakfast omelets.....

Broccoli and Cheese Scramble

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup of broccoli cut into small pieces
  • Colby/jack grated cheese
  • Parmesan grated cheese
  • Butter for cooking (gisa)
  • 2 green onions, diced for garnish

Options: Any leftover meat - gisa this prior to adding in.

Cubed potatoes – ½ in. gisa in butter prior to mixing into omelet

Instructions

  • Prepare the eggs for scrambling in bowl
  • Cut the broccoli up into small pieces, rinse and either steam or microwave maintaining a cooked but not soggy texture. Allow to drain and set aside.
  • Place 2 tbsp of butter into fry pan and heat to medium.
  • Add in eggs, broccoli, Parmesan cheese (to taste) and any meat and other options at this time.
  • Add in salt and freshly grated black pepper to taste.
  • When done plate and sprinkle the Colby/jack cheese over the top.
  • Garnish with the green onions.
  • Microwave prior to serving for 45 seconds.

I also like to add in Cholula Hot Sauce when I first add in the eggs and scramble this along with everything else. Almost gives it a Chorizo flavor. Very tasty. Optional.

Serve along with your other courses and finadenne.

Hope you give this a try. You’re sure to enjoy it.
