happy breakfast

i love skillets. it's the first thing i look for on a breakfast menu. the weekend of our wedding, we treated our bridal party to brunch at meli cafe & juice bar in chicago. my sister and i got a veggie packed skillet (delicious!) and the guys got meat filled skillets. i've been craving that skillet ever since so i decided to try and make my own at home. i ended making enough for three people... and then ate it all by myself because RT wasn't home over the weekend...

cut potatoes into about one inch cubes and fry them up. season as you like. italian herb? salt + pepper? curry powder? whatever floats your boat! i used cajun seasoning.

 fry up some veggies in batches to avoid over cooking. i used zucchini, broccoli, red pepper, mushrooms, spinach and onions. be sure to add salt and pepper while cooking. i really love veggies so i pretty much cleared out the fridge here.

cook a couple of eggs your favorite way. i like mine scrambled.

pile the veggies on top of the potatoes.

pile the eggs on top of the veggies.

top with cheese and let it melt into your hot eggs or pop it into the oven for a tiny bit to melt the cheese.

yum! the best part is that you can make it however you want it. add sausage, use different veggies blends (possibly asian veggies and eggs topped with siracha??), make your eggs sunny side up. i wish i hadn't eaten it all in one sitting... kind of craving some right now...
