This is one of my favorite ways to use up leftovers, especially leftover sauce from making my famous Homestead Company Chicken dinner. All that is required is one skillet and whatever scraps of stuff you have in your fridge from previous meals.
Here is what you need:
- Some leftover cooked potatoes, sweet potatoes or squash. Cold restaurant french fries work amazingly well here. About 1/2 a cup per person.
- Some warmed leftover gravy or sauce. About 1/4 cup per person.
- two or three scrambled eggs per person.
- Some grated cheese. Whatever you've got, and as much as you like.
- Leftover chopped ham, sausage crumbles, bacon, or even cooked chicken or ground beef. About 1/2 cup per person.
- Some fresh herbs (optional).
First, using a small amount of fat (preferably melted coconut oil or ghee,) crisp up the meat crumbles and potatoes over medium heat. Remove and set aside.
Mix the herbs into the eggs. Reduce the heat under the skillet to medium-low, and pour in the egg mixture. Cook until almost set, and carefully remove. Arrange in the bottom of a wide bowl.
Spoon on half of the sauce, followed by the meat/potato mixture, the remaining sauce and a generous sprinkling of cheese.
And voila.... breakfast is served!
