1 Delicious Breakfast: The Florentine Scramble

 

Breakfast, Brunch or even Lunch

It’s another beautiful morning here in the City on the Lakes and thought I would start the day by eating a good healthy breakfast.  Eggs really are a healthy choice, as they give us sustained energy with their extra protein.  They are also a perfect “hot” meal item for a brunch menu.  This Florentine Scramble is an extra special way to make scrambled eggs for breakfast, brunch and even for lunch or dinner.

The same old scrambled eggs can definitely be boring.   They are so often overcooked to the “rubber stage”.  That is what I call it when all of the moisture is cooked out of the egg and texture becomes like rubber(not a cooking term, by the way, it’s just a fact).   With just a few simple techniques you can avoid the rubber egg syndrome altogether.

Ingredients for a Florentine Scramble

I thought I would scramble some eggs with a few of the items I had in my refrigerator.  Mushrooms, spinach, and feta it will be.    It’s a great combo on pizza or in calzones so why not scrambled in eggs!

This recipe is easy to make and is a great compliment to any brunch menu.  Add some Traditional Cranberry Orange Muffins,  finger sandwiches, a nice crudité, and your menu will be complete! This time it was served with a side of pork sausage and some fresh fruit!
