Apologies for the silent week on the blog! I had to take a quick trip back home to Boston this week and didn’t get anything posted. Have no fear, I have a huge backlog of recipes to get edited! Meyer lemon and strawberry sangria, salmon cakes, Heath Bar saucepan brownies… The next week or so should be delicious. 😉

This week, as you can tell, the theme for Sunday Supper is EGGS!!! We are so lucky here in NC to have a lot of options for delicious, farm fresh eggs. If you could get gorgeous eggs like this every week, you would never buy another egg in the grocery store.

This recipe is another of my favorite not-really-a-recipe recipes. Do you ever have leftover baked potatoes in your fridge? They last forever, don’t they?! Have you ever cut one open that has been sitting there awhile? Hmmm… not so pretty, but don’t throw it out! That ugly leftover potato is going to be AWESOME in this egg, potato and cheese scramble. It’s so hearty, it could really be eaten at any meal.

I made a quick video this week to show you how easy it really is to make this!

And a live action shot … I am thankful my kids aren’t bothered by my camera in their faces!! (Yet!) J was so intent on eating this scramble, she didn’t even look up at me. 😉

The trick with this recipe is to really let the potatoes get nice and crispy in the hot pan with butter that has just started to sizzle. Then add the eggs – they will cook quickly! Then add the cheese. Top with freshly diced tomatoes or salsa. Delicious!

  1. What a wonderful breakfast dish! Since everything is already cooked (ie the potato), you could always make this for a breakfast during the week!!

  2. Awww! The curlers are adorable! We love using leftovers for breakfast too! Sometimes we even make extra just so we have some for breakfast the next day!
