California Egg Scramble

Happy Friday Everyone!  Dustin here.  Today was day 3 of our morning running. 


We still have some Whittle My Middle and yoga to do tonight.

For breakfast we had, surprise surprise, pancakes and eggs! Maybe we’ll just make that the theme for the week so we can come up with some new ideas for breakfast next week.  

The pancakes gave us the perfect opportunity to try out one of our new pans (aka our other pans were dirty).  We have been putting off using them because we thought seasoning them was going to be a lot of work.  It was actually really easy!

First you heat the pan up for about 30 seconds on medium.  Then you drop 1 teaspoon of oil on the pan (we chose olive oil).  Finally wipe the olive oil around the inside of the pan with a paper towel.  Ready to go.

The theme for the eggs was:

California Scramble

Out of the following ingredients, can you guess which one inspired the name?


  • Mixed sweet peppers
  • Onion
  • Red Potato
  • Avocado
  • Tomatoes
  • Cheese (;))

Here are the steps we took to make the dish:

We sautéed the red potatoes for a couple of minutes with some olive oil in pepper since they take a little longer to cook.Then we added in the onions and peppers for a couple minutes more.


Throw in the avocado and tomatoes and stir all together.

Pour the eggs over everything.  Throw on a sprinkle of cheese. Then start scrambling away.

I love my tomatoes.

  1. Yummy! I got a new cast iron skillet for Christmas (the thing is a beast! It’s huge!) and I haven’t used it yet because of the seasoning thing. Glad to see it’s so simple! 🙂

  2. Cool, I like the fact that the kitty sneaked in for the picture! Unfortunately eggs hurt my tummy in the morning 😦

    Keep it up!!
