Eggs are awesome. Know why?
- They’re so versatile. You can scramble ‘em, fry ‘em, bake ‘em into a quiche or frittata, slap ‘em on a breakfast sandwich, or even drink ‘em raw from a cup.
- The add-ins are endless: veggies, cheese, potatoes, meat, fresh herbs, and more!
- You can cook up an egg in mere minutes.
- They’re packed with protein and therefore great for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.
- They’re good for you. They help your eyesight, they’ve got choline for your brain (which means they keeps you smart cookies smart!), and they’re low in calories and fat.
- You can eat them any time of day. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all eggcellent opportunities!
- They’re delicious!
If that doesn’t make you want to chow down on some eggs, then I don’t know what will. Keep in mind, you don’t always have to have the same old scramble. Eating the same thing over and over again gets boring no matter what the food. So spiffy up your scramble with this cheesy, broccoli & potato twist!
My Cheesy Broccoli & Potato Scramble starts with fluffy scrambled eggs and tops them with roasted potatoes, tender broccoli, and a creamy cheddar sauce. The secret? The cheesy broccoli and potatoes come from a frozen meal! Smart Ones and Lean Cuisine both make cheesy broccoli and potato entrees. They heat up in the microwave in a couple of minutes, so all you have to do is scramble the eggs then add the broccoli and potatoes on top.
It’s delicious, filling, and, with only 180 calories and 17 grams of protein, it’s honestly good for you. It’s one cheesy treat that you can feel good about eating. Whether you’re looking to get your body going in the morning, refuel at lunchtime, or fill up at dinner, this dish is ideal. It’s quick, easy, and so good!
A Few Tips Before You Get Cooking:
- If you know how to cook an egg, then you can make this. It’s insanely easy!
- The Lean Cuisine version has slightly better stats than Smart Ones, but only by a margin. I use Smart Ones because I find it tastes better.
- Use fresh chives! The dried kind is horrible.
- If you want to bulk this dish up even more, cook the egg in omelet-form and serve it on top of a low-cal, whole-wheat tortilla or pita. Top it with the cheddar broccoli & potatoes, and you’ve got yourself a breakfast pizza!
