When I'm stuck for breakfast ideas, I often turn to this recipe. What seems like the usual scrambled eggs transforms into a dish that makes even the most reluctant eaters eagerly clean their plates.

What could scrambled eggs and pizza possibly have in common? Quite a lot, as it turns out. Simply uttering the word "pizza" can miraculously make children's appetites soar, ensuring no breakfast plate is left unattended. By combining a few simple ingredients, you can present a familiar breakfast in a delightfully unfamiliar way.

Scrambled Eggs à la Pizza

Do you have leftover deli meats in the fridge or some slightly stale bread in the breadbox? Throw in some cheese and eggs, and you'll end up with a dish that tastes nothing like leftovers. These unusual additions give scrambled eggs a pizza-like flair, making them a hit with everyone.

This recipe offers a creative solution to the common dilemma of what to make for breakfast. My mom came up with this innovative scrambled egg dish years ago when our family was in the thrall of pizza love. The idea of "pizza-style scrambled eggs" was enough to spark the imagination and make breakfast the most anticipated meal of the day.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs,
  • 1-2 slices of bread (depending on their size),
  • grated yellow cheese,
  • your favorite deli meat or sausage,
  • half a small onion,
  • 1 clove of garlic,
  • 1-2 tablespoons of canned corn,
  • half a tomato,
  • salt and pepper to taste,
  • oil for frying.

How to make:

  1. Cube the bread as you would for croutons.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet and toss in the bread. Sauté until crispy.
  3. Add the chopped deli meat or sausage and cook until nicely browned.
  4. Include the finely chopped onion, minced garlic, corn, and diced tomato, and continue sautéing.
  5. Crack the eggs into the skillet, sprinkle in the grated cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Stir the mixture continuously with a spatula as it cooks.

Once done, serve the dish immediately. For an extra touch, you can add a dollop of homemade garlic sauce. Feel free to customize your scrambled eggs à la pizza with additional toppings like chopped bell peppers or mushrooms. Enjoy your meal!
