Eggs...ellent

Normally eggs are not my go to for breakfast ... first I need to clear something up..
I am not the enemy of breakfast (someone that lives in the house likes to say this about me) ... it's just not my favorite meal of the day. I'm happy to have a Nature Valley Biscuits with Peanut Butter


I'll have one of these biscuits and a cheese stick and am happy till lunch. 

Sunday is our Saturday so often I'll get up and make breakfast this morning after a discussion on the Facebook group, Quilters Who Cook, I changed my mind from pancakes to eggs because I remembered that I had a counter top full of yellow squash I had to figure out how to use up.
So...eggs to the rescue because pancakes with yellow squash would be gross.


Half an onion, two tomatoes from my little garden, yellow squash from Messick's Farm Market (CSA) and farm fresh eggs from the Warrenton Farmers Market and 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (goat cheese would have been better but I was out).

I chopped the tomatoes into very small pieces and lined a bowl with paper towels to soak up the juice, cause you don't want tomato juice in your eggs.


After dicing the squash and 1/2 onion I threw about a table spoon of butter into a hot pan added the squash/onion mixture, lightly salt & pepper and saute but not too long, you want your veggies to have a little crunch.


next up ...  add the tomatoes


After I took this picture I took the veggies and spread them out in the pan so they would cook evenly and this also gave me time to beat my eggs ...
Now here is my tip on beating your eggs ...


First ... break the yolks before going to town beating your eggs, this will help get an even blend without having little bits of whites in your finished product. Second ... use a fork..don't grab your whisk unless you want your eggs full of air, the fork is the perfect egg beater out there. Third ... DO NOT add milk or water ... there is no need to do this when making an omelet you'll get moist eggs from the veggies.

Now pour the eggs over your veggies

I do push the egg mixture around before I flip over the top of my omelet. Right before you flip the top over this is when you want to add cheese.


Serve with fresh fruit and toast on the side.

With a breakfast like this you are ready to take on the day..

Until Next Time
Forks Up

  1. Everyone says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day - I just don't ever seem to find the time to make it.

    1. And I'm not normally hungry in the morning when I have to get ready for work...which is why the bar and cheese do just fine for me.

  2. I've never been much of a breakfast eater. In a perfect world, I'd eat my meals at noon, 4 pm and 8 pm. but you will find me mostly eating breakfast around 10 am, lunch between 1 and 2 pm and dinner 7-7:30. Oh, and I eat an apple EVERY day between 4 and 4:30 cut into about 36 slices.
