Description:

Eggs are my favorite breakfast. They’re a great source of high quality protein, plus you can prepare them so many different ways. One of my go-to ways to prepare them is a scramble of potatoes, veggies, and eggs. This recipe stems from still wanting eggs for breakfast, but needing a more time-efficient option. These are a great protein-packed breakfast option for when you need to meal prep for the week. I whip up a batch of these on Sunday afternoon or evening and my breakfasts are covered for a whole week. You can use any veggies you want, any meat you want, use meat substitutes, or do no meat at all! The great thing about this recipe is how adjustable and customizable it is.
