Leftover Skillet Scramble

Leftover Skillet Scramble

I sure hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, filled with lots and lots of food!

This was my first year to ever be away from family during the holidays. It was up to me to provide Christmas dinner for our little family of five. I did a classic family dinner of ham, casserole potatoes {I need to share this recipe with you}, green beans, and rolls. Followed of course by a pumpkin pie.

It turned out perfectly, but having a fridge the size of a small child leftovers are something that can't stay around for too long. Needless to say, we have been eating ham, casserole potatoes, green beans, and rolls for the past couple days. {the pumpkin pie didn't make it that long}

Which brings me to what we consumed for breakfast. A nice combination of leftovers all mixed together with eggs and cheese {seriously...who doesn't love eggs and cheese?}

Here's what I used: a few pieces of ham, half an onion, two slices of thick bacon, half of a baked potato, some green onions, eggs, and cheese.

{PS- can you tell what I got for Christmas??}

Add about a tsp of oil to a hot skillet and throw in the diced onion, and sliced bacon.

 Saute until the onions are translucent and the bacon is cooked.

I peeled the skin from the potato and diced it up.

Dice up a few pieces of ham. Since the ham and potato are already cooked, you wont need to cook them again in the skillet.

Toss them both in the skillet and give it a good toss and let it warm up.

 In a separate bowl combine 5 eggs, salt and pepper. Whisk together.

Pour the eggs over the skillet, and add the diced green onions.

{now can you guess what I got for Christmas??}

With a wooden spoon stir slowly to let the eggs cook.

Once the eggs are firmed up, top the skillet with a handful {or two} of shredded cheese. I prefer sharp cheddar, it is bursting with flavor.

 Let the cheese melt to it's ooey gooey perfect-ness.

Top with a little bit of cilantro {if you have it on hand}, maybe a little sour cream? Personally, I am diggin the Jalapeno Tabasco sauce right now. Order up with a tall glass of cold milk.

Good Morning Leftovers!
