Use what you have on hand. Great for leftover ingredients

  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter or 1 tbsp olive or vegetable oil
  • (optional) 1.5 cups fingerling or yukon gold potatoes, steamed until tender then cut into 1/2” dice (or cubed then microwaved for 4-6 min)
    • sweet, white, or yellow potatoes or winter squash
    • couscous and rice also work
  • (optional) 1 cup (2 ounces) button mushrooms, small dice

  • salt and pepper
  • (optional) 1/8 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • (optional) paprika, cinnamon, or other spices depending on ingredients

  • Ensure that all of the ingredients are pre-cooked. Vegetables can be cooked in water or broth or softened in a microwave. Make sure to cut into small cubes

  • Add the quicker-cooking ingredients last and cook the egg.
