Leftovers For The Win!

Just a quickie (those are always fun ;), I had some left over Brussel sprouts and a baked potato from last night. So I decided to do a quick mini-feast for breakfast. Here's how it went:

Software: Additional ingredients needed: 1 clove garlic, 2 green onoin finely chopped, 2-3 tbst oil, 1 tbst butter, salt and pepper or your favorite spice blend for savory cooking.

Hardware: 10" saute pan (preferrably a well-seasoned cast iron pan)

 

  • Heat  a 10" saute pan over medium heat
  • Cut sprouts into quarters - set aside
  • Cut baked potato into similarly sized pieces - set aside
  • Crush a clove of garlic - set aside
  • Add 2 tbsp of olive oil to pan
  • Once a sacrificial piece of potato sizzles right away when dropped into the pan, immediately add prepared ingredients and sautee until sprouts soften and potatos lightly brown
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper (or your favorite blend)
  • Raise heat to medium high till oil starts to actively bubble
  • Add 1 tbsp of butter to pan, stir.
  • Scramble two eggs with approx 1 tbsp of water.
  • Add eggs to mixture in pan and let sit for approx 30 seconds
  • Turn mixture over with a spatula so eggs cook thoroughly
  • Once eggs are cooked - plate your concoction
  • Garnish with chopped green onion and sriracha (of hot sauce of your choice)
  • EAT!!!
